From the Studio: Sneak Preview of “Naked Kate” Acoustic Cover Album September 19, 2019

“The Man with the Child in His Eyes” One of the most beautiful and beloved Kate Bush songs, “The Man with the Child in His Eyes” was written when Kate was a teenager, about her first boyfriend, Steve Blacknell. “I wrote that when I was 16. I’ve got two older brothers and have always been Read More…

Release the Sea Nymphs! March 30, 2019

(Official Music Video Below) Last year sometime, I met Melbourne-based Chillwave artist Lacunae Glow online through a music community group on Facebook of professional indie musicians. She had heard my album DREAM DANCE and was inspired by the music and the underwater cover art, so she messaged me asking if I’d like to collaborate on Read More…

Song Decoder Episode 1: What Have I Forgotten? 16 January

One of my favorite podcasts is Song Exploder, where host Thao Nguyen invites guests to deconstruct their songs. How fascinating is it to hear the various textures and parts that make up a great song, as well as what inspired it? Since it’s been a year since I released by first album, Dream Dance, it Read More…

Life is But a Dream . . . The Making of DREAM DANCE February 1, 2018

Writing, producing, and recording DREAM DANCE took over 3 years and was truly a life changing event for me. It turns out that I shot a lot of video blogs throughout the process of assembling this album, and since so many of you are also artists and creatives, I thought you’d find something of value Read More…

A Tribute to My Influences January 3, 2018

When I was a kid, I spent hours and hours in my room playing my guitar and singing. I sometimes would also wander out into the woods around our house with my guitar until I found just the right spot, and  sit on the ground serenading the trees. There was one song I played over Read More…

The Making of: We Carry On October 3, 2017

Of all the songs on DREAM DANCE, this one was probably the MOST challenging. I had my struggles with others, to be sure. Dream Dance, the song itself, presented multiple difficulties (culminating with 27 versions of it)! But We Carry On was its own beast. I had set myself a goal to write a pop anthem Read More…

Melanie Martinez – The Making of: Heart on a Shelf July 4, 2017

“Heart on a Shelf” is the one song on DREAM DANCE that was directly inspired by a new pop artist I had run across randomly while watching The Voice in 2012, Melanie Martinez.  I remember at the time as I watched her that I felt a strange affinity for her, as she seemingly got swallowed up by the show Read More…

The Making of: Wasteland February 16, 2017

“Wasteland” was the very first song I wrote for this CD, and it holds a very, very special place in my heart for many reasons. I asked Gentry Bronson to write some lyrics for me to arrange and compose to jump start my recording project. When he presented me with these, I was immediately taken with them. Read More…

The Making of: Beautiful Wound February 3, 2017

This song came late in the process of writing and producing Dream Dance. I had been doing a lot of listening to Lordes’ Pure Heroine for ideas on drum programming, as I had wanted to break out of trimming and molding the drum loops and experiment with creating my own rhythm track. I made some incredible Read More…

The Making of: Dream Dance (song) December 31, 2016

Visit to access your free download of “Dream Dance.” You never know from where inspiration will spring. This song is one of those cases. I had been reading this incredible book “COLOR” by Victoria Finlay which is a perspective and travelogue about the origins of color. I was drawn to the book because of Read More…
