It was an amazing 3 days in Fat Rabbit Studios producing/engineering & performing on Philadelphia roots/blues artist, Mikey Junior's upcoming record. There was something spectacularly rare about the chemistry between everybody involved, and the music undoubtedly reflects that. Everything felt perfectly natural and each song inspired a brilliant performance out of everyone involved. Thanks to Mikey Junior, Dean Shot, Matt Raymond and Michael Bram for giving it everything you got! I cannot wait for you all to hear what this album sounds like. This record is going to leave a big mark!

Jeremy Baum hits the studio!

I had an amazing couple of days in the studio this week working on Jeremy Baum's new album. Jeremy tracked on his newly rebuilt Hammond B3, which sounded absolutely incredible. He'll be back in a few days to track more on the B3, as well as on my newly acquired Yamaha grand piano, and my Wurlitzer 200A. These sessions had some fantastic musicians with some serious credentials: Juma Sultan (percussionist for Jimi Hendrix), Eric Kalb (drummer for Charlie Hunter, the Dap-Kings, etc), Chris Vitarello (guitarist for Jimmy McGriff, Bruce Katz, etc), Scott Sharrard (guitarist for Gregg Allman), Tony Tino (bass player for Gavin Degraw, Ronnie Spector, etc), Myles Mancuso and Chris Reddan (drummer for Popa Chubby, Lance Lopez, etc). More sessions coming up with even more special guests!

Brad Vickers recording sessions start this week!

Very excited to get back in the studio this Monday with the wonderful Brad Vickers & His Vestapolitans. This time around, he will be bringing in Charles Burnham, Matt Cowan, Jim Davis, Margey Peters, Bill Rankin, Christine Santelli, Gina Sicilia and V.D. King. This is sure to be a very exciting trip through several decades worth of Brad's songwriting, and will be stripped down, honest and full of character. This will be Brad's 4th full length solo release. More updates to come as the sessions come to pass!
