Exited about the release of this album I produced for recording artist and Phantom of the Opera Chris Mann. 

Tim Pierce is the man.

Had a great session the other day with legendary guitarist Tim Pierce for Jordan Heppner's debut single as a solo artist. Tim has a great setup in LA, you can get whatever it is you're looking for, and he knows all the new coolest records before I do. Always love working with him. 

What's in your carry-on?

What's in your carry-on? 

I've always loved looking at those "what's in your carry on" posts. I travel a lot and I'm a nerd about bags, always trying to find the best setup. This one is optimized for having a check bag and carrying the smallest possible bag through the airport. The bag itself is the attaché from Killspencer. My essentially are my 15" MacBook Pro (not shown) and iLok, plus Eartech IEMs - I'm always working when I'm travelling. I carry the field recorder because I like to add ambient sounds or found percussion sounds to my programming, so I'm frequently gathering new sounds when I'm traveling. There's Aesop deodorant and mouthwash plus you always need fresh socks. Pretty minimal if I say so myself.

Denver Rockies

I've been working the last while with an artist who is touring and making a live album, it's taken me all over the world which has been great. But very cool to get to do a show at Rockies stadium. I'm not a big sports ball fan but they let us watch the game from the owners' box which had air conditioning and unlimited free beer. Fun. 

New scoring project

I'm starting a new scoring project and I always find these are good times to incorporate new instruments. I'm jonesing pretty hard right now for the Dave Smith / Sequential Circuits Prophet 6... 

Grammy Awards

So tonight I went to the Grammys for the first time, because I did some work on a nominated album. We didn't win, but despite that I'm so glad we could go. It was amazing and inspiring to see artist of different backgrounds, religions, orientations, countries - all kinds of things that so often divide people - working together not just to make great music but also to be a positive influence in the world.

I'm greatful to Diana Pops, who is to this day one of the most talented artists I've ever worked with, to Chris Mann, who heard our music and brought it to his producer's attention and who has now become a great friend, and finally to Walter Afanasieff, also now a great friend, who, thanks to Chris' introduction, invited me to collaborate with him here in Los Angeles and who has completely changed my life.

I can't wait to see what 2015 has in store!

Grammy Award nomination!

Very happy to announce that an album I worked on, Barbara Streisand's "Partners" was just nominated for a Grammy award. Congratulations to Walter A and Babyface who produced, and to everyone else who worked on this as well.
