About

We've got a bunch of new material, songs and compositions that are ready to bring into the studio to record.

Here's an example of some of the new stuff:

From Here to There is an upbeat vocal track. You can hear a bit of that in our intro video.

Fair Game, an instrumental that draws from Jazz/Fusion influences, gives our rhythm section a chance to show off.

Fantasia in Blue is a piece for guitar and string quartet that incorporates latin and blues styles.

We've got two terrific players; Ken Bowie on drums and Damian Muller on bass. Not only do they give us a solid foundation, but they both sing. So, we're working up arrangements with four-part harmony.

For the strings, we're thrilled to be working with the Silverleaf String Quartet: Susan Bedell on first violin, Alison Hall on second violin, violist Tom Stevens, and Paul Bedell on cello.

Slipped Disc Audio in Ashland, VA is the studio we'll be working out of. It would be tough to find a better engineer than Bill McElroy to have behind the desk. And when we're done, the music will be available on CDs and as downloadable tracks.
