Show tonight with Roman & Alaina

I have been recording keyboards on a new album with Roman & Alaina. The pop duo and I are giving a pre-release concert at a Sukkot celebration. 7pm in Hollywood, all are welcome.

Concert in Glendale

Come check out a show tonight by the Motif Ensemble. The concert is all vocal music, a variety of opera, musical theatre, and celtic songs.  3pm at First Baptist Church of Glendale.  I am the accompanist for Motif, which is directed by opera singer extraordinaire Mara Baygulova.

Playing for Mark Abel

Today I had an epic 13 hour recording session playing piano for Mark Abel’s project entitled The Dream Gallery, an orchestral album project that I am co-producing with him for Delos Music. I managed to record and fully edit the piano for the entire 70 minute album, and as usual my 1906 Baldwin grand sounds wonderful.

Recording for Roman & Alaina

The last couple of days I’ve been recording keys for Roman & Alaina playing Wurlitzer, Hammond, and my beautiful 1906 Baldwin grand piano. Produced by Drew Allsbrook at The People’s Music, Roman’s album is going to sound fantastic. Additional recordings were in my studio and at Sound Asylum.

Scoring The Magic Hourglass

My film scoring process has begun for Robert Rollins’ film The Magic Hourglass. Because we’re longtime collaborators and he likes to involve the composer very early on, this score is proving to be an easy nut to crack. I was involved in this film as early as the script writing and budgeting processes, so now that it’s time to write the music for the film it feels like an old friend and not a new project. Working with Robert is a rewarding and deep collaborative process.

Producing artist Austin Bustad

Over the last four days I hosted one continuous, epic recording session at my studio with artist Austin Bustad. I am producing his next album, which will be my third project with him. We’re now totally done tracking guitar, bass, drums, and vocals. Overdubs will begin next week.
