Hey hey hey

Hi Everyone … Once again I have been so busy I haven’t kept up on my posts…
here is a quick update..
Just about to master a record I produced and played drums on for a new artist MATT GOLD..
I recorded at Dave Place and the amazing Dave Bianco engineered.. Lee Sklar played bass, Tm Pierce played guitar and Kevin Savigar played synths.. amazing players… they rock..

I recently recorded 2 songs on ROD STEWART’S new cd and
I am on JOHN FOGERTY’S new cd coming out in late May…

I have been busy doing sessions in my Uncommon Studio LA and also other studios in LA.

Heading to Nashville to record at Blackbird Studios with MEADOWS FORTUNE BAND.

I recorded some killer tracks on SCOTT STAPP’S new cd which is being produced by the legendary bad ass Howard Benson and engineered by amazing engineer Mike Plotnikoff…

More to come…..
