I played bass on a tough dirty sounding song called "Freaks and Hustlers" on this record along with Louis Cole on drums and Timothy Young on guitar. Timothy produced and Husky Hoskulds recorded and mixed. The day I recorded was funny because a babysitter cancelled and I had to bring my two young daughters to the studio. I recorded the song while Rebecca watched them. She was lovely and I love this album.

Ligabue_Mondovisione_album_resized.jpg

"Mondovisione" is Ligabue's latest album.  I'm so proud and honored to be a part of the genesis and culmination of this record.  I've played in Luciano's band for the past six years and I'm excited to be a part of this.  I remember demoing and arranging a lot of these songs together in Sardinia in the spring of 2012.  Luciano Luisi produced the record.  We recorded it in Correggio at Luciano's studio.  I'm really proud of the songs and the bass parts on the record.

I played bass on Cristiano's record produced by Corrado Rustici.  Michael Urbano played drums.  The whole thing as usual working with Corrado was a pleasure.  Cristiano is a great songwriter and multi instrumentalist.  His father is a legendary figure in Italian music but he stands on his own.  So cool to be a part of this project.

CHE_FINAL300dpi-600.jpg

 

It was such an honor to play bass on songwriter and guitarist Che Prasad's album "Shiva Me Timbers".  I've been friends with Che's brother Mikie since I was 13.  Mikie is a great guitar player who taught me my first few basslines and Che is his big brother so it was a pleasure all these years later to get to play with big bro! It's a killer record with my man Michael Urbano on drums.

Thinking Plague "Decline and Fall" 2012 - CD

MI0003302954.jpg  I played bass on a song called "Malthusian Dances" for this album from Thinking Plague.  I'm really excited to have contributed to this record.  Thinking Plague is a band that is the musical outlet for guitarist/composer Mike Johnson.  Mike was also my stepfather growing up in Denver.  He is a fantastic musician and it's always been a goal of mine to get to play with this band.  He sent me the track and the music for this song which was pretty tricky and after a couple of takes, I think I did a pretty good job.
