"One More Day" (Released, Feb 2019)
"One More Day" was produced by Ryan Glick, from the Bay Area. I met Ryan at an open jam. He is an amazing drummer, and I was looking for a drummer at that time. We connected one night at this jam, and I ended up performing at a lot of gigs in various bands with him. Ryan was like my Musical Director, with so many ideas, and he recorded everything in his studio.
The album was Mixed & Mastered by Andy Coyne of Killout Desire Studios in the L.A. area. Andy can also be heard on Acoustic Guitar on "Ghost In The Night" and Electric Guitar on "One More Day".

Songwriting comes in many forms, and it is inspired in infinite ways. Sometimes, the sun, moon or rain inspires. Or an experience from the past. Other times, it is merely a brainstorm in the present moment. This video improv with Ryan Glick is one of our brainstorms on songwriting. Nothing was pre-determined. As soon as the 1st note was struck, our brainstorm in the vid was free to go where it wanted!
