Wow!

Wow! It’s been a banner year for @werenogentlemen, despite some of the challenges we and the rest of the music community are facing. Much thanks to everyone listening to us on @spotify.

I got the opportunity to provide the bass line for “Thanks for the Memories”, the debut song from the new pop duo @taystimusic.

I am really proud to be a part of this project, having a blast in the studio and getting to working with so many talented people. Make sure to take a listen on @spotify, @applemusic, @amazonmusic, and pretty much any other major music platform.

This photo got me thinking about CDs and physical media in general.

This photo got me thinking about CDs and physical media in general.
– I have some rare(ish) CDs that you just can’t find online. For example, :[dos]:, the album by Altered State, an amazing band from right here in Huntington Beach.
– Vinyl is making a serious comeback, not just for nostalgia or the audio characteristics, but as a tangible memento that acknowledges the artist’s achievement — the artwork, the liner notes, and all that cool stuff.

Anyone else have any interesting physical media laying around that you’ve kept around because they are rare or the artist’s catalog isn’t available for streaming?

Anyone getting back into vinyl, especially for new releases?

ThrowbackThursday BTS – Soundcheck at the Troub with Katie Garfield five years back (the place looks a little different when the lights are on during the daytime).

ThrowbackThursday BTS – Soundcheck at the Troub with Katie Garfield five years back (the place looks a little different when the lights are on during the daytime). As it turned out, this ended up being our last gig together, but we had some great experiences as a band-fam. We all still keep in touch from time to time via social media. Everyone is still active in the music industry and doing some really cool stuff. Check ’em out.

Here’s the full-length bass play-through for “Disguise” from We’re No Gentlemen’s second release, ‘This is Home’.
