The Latest and Greatest
It’s been a busy 2022 so far, and here are a few things keeping us rockin’ around here!
DEBUT ALBUM OUT NOW
Over the pandemic I started a new music project with my wife, cellist Mika Larson, and we recorded this 8-song album here at Hi Wheel Studios. It’s out now, streaming on major platforms and downloadable at Bandcamp.com!
I sat with Barry Funkhouser at 88.5 to talk about my music career and productions, including world premieres of Nextdoors, Title Trackers, & more. The interview segment starts at around the two-hour mark.
I produced a song on Loki’s Folly’s upcoming album Sisu, and premiered on 88.5 during the show mentioned at the left here. Mika Larson shot and produced the accompanying music video. Garage rock heaven!
We produced/co-produced, organized, and helped run tech for several virtual concerts this year, both with our own acts and for others – such as the 30th Annual Dylanfest Bob Dylan celebration. This is one of Bob’s celebrated songs I performed with my band Pillow Of Wrongness, recorded and filmed separately in 5 locations. I then mixed and edited the song – which was recorded with everything from iPad mics, to pro studios, and remote recording equipment.
Some More Virtual Events and Fundraisers
Virtual Music Education and Fun
I’ve worked at summer camps as Music Director for almost 2 decades. 2020 was a disastrous year for American summer camps, most of which were not able to run. Camp Ben Frankel of Illinois decided to run a full-fledge virtual camp all summer (and winter) and I served as Music Director for this inaugural virtual fun! Here is a video where I talk about the program and show some highlights from the first few weeks of the summer, featuring videos where the vocals and music were actually recorded over the internet live.
