Thanks to everyone that helped us reach our goal!
We wrote & arranged some really beautiful & fun music to listen to going for a very high level of production quality. It’s a very raw, rich, full sounding jazzy & funky album. ‘IntroSpective’ was recorded in Boise, ID, then mixed by Frank Wolf & mastered at Turtle Tone Studios in New York City.

Now the part where you come in!
Everyone who supports us gets a download of the album!
Your gracious support will help us to market the ‘Introspective’ and duplicate CDs for release. It will also help us have some meaningful album artwork that matches the quality level of the music for those that want something more than just a music download.

Collaborate

My goal is to assist songwriters and recording artists of any genre that otherwise might not have access to the beauty of great music production assets like live horns or horn solos at their disposal to add additional live and electronic instruments to digitally based music recordings. If you are looking for  interesting and unique music or horn arrangements for your next album, film or video, I can provide it.

I have a unique sound and creative input for any project I’m a part of. My goal is to find unique one of a kind multimedia projects where I can use my skills and knowledge to collaborate and create interesting new music, film, and television media; commercial or experimental.

I have played saxophone for many years with many diverse music groups and I’m good at creating interesting horn lines and solos that fit a song or genre with full collaboration to your song, website, video or life in general. (See Discography)

You can upload via my Hightail account song, image, video or idea and I will collaborate with you to create a horn line or solo to fit the piece of work you have provided and will email you the solo track for your acceptance & approval. I’ll only take work if I’m sure I can add something worthwhile.

I can also create exciting and interesting music arrangements from existing vocals and/or accompaniment parts with any amount of collaboration.
