Jericho (Freedom Worship)

What’s up, fam?!

I’m so happy to drop in and FINALLY (only because I’m a slacker and didn’t post about it) tell you about the track I got to work on with the incredibly talented group of people over at Freedom Worship. Back in May, my good buddy over at Starscream Studio tossed me this track to play bass on and, already having worked with the Freedom peeps in the past, I quickly obliged.

Now, interesting story is that I had recently built a portable rack setup for recording, composing, and mixing on the road so I got to put this to use in…well, a natural location. More specifically, the woods in the foothills of the North GA mountains. Take a peek –

The song, which actually released back in August, is called Jericho. You can find it on Spotify and Apple Music. Definitely give their accounts a follow because they are going to be pushing out a lot more music in the upcoming weeks and months. Check them out on the socials, too – Instagram, TikTok.

Here’s my celebratory IG reel with some pics from the release party.

Also, don’t forget to hit up my guys over at Starscream. If you need live or studio engineering, recording, or anything else, they are the ones to call.

ATL Party Bands

Family!

I am so happy to finally tell you this…

A few months ago, a good friend shot me a text and asked if I would be interested in working with his family of party/corporate bands. A couple convos later and I happily joined the team as music director.

The friend? His name is Adam Johnson and he is one of the hardest working, most driven cats I know. He hosts a podcast called Cover Band Confidential (IG FB), Owns and operates ATL Party Bands, sings and plays guitar (like a boss) for those bands, owns a tech and personal branding consulting firm (IG, FB), and does all of that while being a dad and husband. FREAKING CRAZY.

I had Adam play and sing a good bit in environments that I directed over and I sub-contracted a few times with his 80’s tribute band Members Only and the 90’s version of that, Can’t Hardly Wait (along with others, both under the ATL Party Bands umbrella-ella-ella).

The gig? Involves a lot of nerd stuff. Transitioning the band over to Ableton (for tracks playback), some audio system tweaking (mostly to accommodate the new playback setup), performing with the groups, and, of course, all the (not so) glamorous MD stuff. This is literally everything I love about my world and it has already been a lot of fun.

(You can read the official announcement post here)

So there you have it! When public shows are a thing again, come out and hear one of these incredible bands. If you need a band for a private event, look around the ATL Party Bands website and find the perfect fit.

Stay awesome, peeps!

Dua Lipa – Don’t Start Now Bass Cover

Fam!!

I hope this note finds you all healthy and sane! The other day, I slapped the internet in the face with a fancy-nancy cover video of Dua Lipa’s fabulous track, Don’t Start Now. It’s such a fun tune and the bass line is a blast. If you haven’t heard it, it’s a throwback to the post-disco boogie style with funky bass, clean guitar, and great synths.
