Just launched my Facebook Artist page. Nothing is on there as of yet aside from a couple of graphics, but that is going to change in preparation for the biggest announcement of my career thus far in the coming months (how's that for a tease....). So click HERE and give it a quick "Like." It'll be over before you know it and you wont' feel a thing...for a little while.....
I was honored to take part in a really cool project/experiment called Quarantunes, headed by Jim Ivins of the Nashville-based band The Ivins. The concept is that Jim had a bunch of riffs laying around and sent them to different players throughout Nashville to record their parts separately without knowing what the final product would sound like. I played on song which became "Fight The Machine," featuring the amazing Jasmine Cain on vocals. The song is available for streaming now and the entire album will be released on October 23rd. Proceeds from the album go toward MusiCares Covid Relief Fund, which helps musicians with financial assistance during this pandemic. So take a listen HERE and support a great cause!
Found some old Drum Cam footage from a JANET GARDNER show in July of last year, so I'll be posting clips periodically. The first two, "Candle" and "Without You" are now in the WATCH section (fun fact: see if you can spot the moment where I almost drop a stick in "Without You").
Just added some new Drum Cam footage to the WATCH section taken from the recent Janet Gardner performance at MelodicRock Fest in Melbourne, Australia. Kill some quarantine time and check it out. More clips to be posted soon.
My apologies for the hectic nature of the SHOWS section, but due to global health concerns, it's not entirely clear as of yet which shows have been cancelled, postponed, or moved. As soon as I know more, I will be updating this section accordingly. Until then, stay safe, wash your hands, and be kind to everyone.
