I’m very excited about this track. I got the idea last Friday that I’d like to record a David Bowie song. And here we are a week later and its mastered, shipped and in most online stores. And I think it turned out great. David Bowie made it easy by writing a great song. This is my tribute to him. Everyone Says ‘Hi’.
I’m happy to announce that my new album ‘Living With Fiction‘ is released today, on my 58th birthday. It is the follow up to ‘A Matter Of Time‘ released in 2001, and the first album of all new songs since ‘And We Dream‘ released in 1993. 22 years! I was intent on completing something new, and this is what I came up with. It’s pretty dark across the board, but reflective of the past few years, and it makes a nice addition to my discography. As in past collections, I played all the instruments and handled all the engineering etc. All of the recording equipment and software was new this time around, so there was a bit of a learning curve. But I’m hoping it sounds good to you! It’s available as a digital download from most stores, and on CD only thru my website – use the Bandcamp link below for that…

As a prelude to my first album of new songs in over 22 years, I am releasing a few things for fun, many that have never seen the light of day. Earlier this year, I pulled all of my music from the various online outlets, in order to form a new publishing company – Self Conscious Music (BMI). So it’s time to start putting some music back out there. I am initially releasing a few singles – something I’ve never done. Full remastered album releases will follow.
I’m excited to announce that two new albums of music are in the works for 2015. ‘Living With Fiction’ is my first album of all new original songs since ‘And We Dream’ in 1993, so the 22 year drought will finally come to an end. It’s not like I haven’t been recording during that time. I did release ‘A Matter of Time’ in 2001, which included re-recordings of a number of my songs, plus one new song. There are a lot of recordings not released, most of which I’ve never finished, or was unhappy with. But a surge of recording over the past two years has resulted in a pile of stuff, most of it not finished according to my standards (which seems to be par for the course at this point).
Another thing that’s been happening these past two years has been my archiving a lot of my old work: From DAT tapes, Cassette tapes, and most recently 1/2 inch 8 Track tapes. Bringing the 8 track stuff into the current studio setup presented the opportunity to play with it – literally. The result of that is ‘Retread’, a new album of older songs that includes performances spanning 30 plus years on some tracks, while at the same time sounding fresh and current. So keep an eye out for the release of these two new albums, and please join my mailing list by clicking the link at the top of the page to get an taste of early mixes etc.
