As a guitar player, you can probably imagine based on the radio these days that I don’t listen to a ton of pop music. Enter my wife, she has the radio in her mini van dialed into one of the pop stations constantly. If I have to drive I usually listen to something else, but there was one song this […]

I was lucky enough to sit down with my old friend Jay and pick his brain about RUSH and growing up playing in a band. Jay was the first bass player I ever played with and the fact that we got to play some of the most complex rock music together with a drummer who could nail down all the […]

Having a 16 year old helps me keep up on what may or may not be cool. One thing I’ve notice trending lately are 80’s synth sounds making a come back in music. Which I don’t mind, for me it’s a nostalgic thing that takes me back to being my daughters age, or even younger. When she lets me hear […]

Well supposedly Rock Music is dead. Not in my mind, I am constantly seeking out new artist who are rock based and some part of me misses a Marshall Stack cranked to eleven. “this one goes to eleven”(Spinal Tap Quote). The power of driven guitars will always be part of me and have in a huge way made up the […]

So I’ve basically been on the road with these guys the last 4-5 years playing live shows. I finally talked them into recording an album. The whole thing was tracked at my studio, Studio 14. It was ultimately tracked live, meaning the whole band playing together in one room, we then went back and overdubbed as needed. The recording turned […]

In December I wanted to try out my new electronic gimbal for my phone. I have not shot any music videos on a phone before. My first thought is that I wanted to try a one shot video. I found one of my favorite spots in a park from my childhood and with the snow covered trail, it really added […]

I never thought at 12 years of age, when I started playing guitar, that I would some day be passing on my knowledge of guitar in order to support a family. But it has truly been a blessing teaching guitar over the past several years. It has been rewarding to see it bring joy into so many peoples lives. If […]

So this video is about a songwriter named Matt Michaelis from California who almost gave up on songwriting after losing his voice. He started playing guitar, which reinvigorated him. I was lucky enough to be able to record the drums at Studio 14 as well as mix and master the songs. Matt also had me sing on a song called […]

As a studio owner when my kids come ask me if they can record music, I try to make it happen. For the past several years my oldest and I have had a common bond with music. I like some of the stuff she listens to. She pretends to like some of the stuff I listen to or styles of […]
