It’s so great to be back together, am I right?! If you recall, back in August, I let you guys know about a single called These Hills from my group, The Carolina Stomp. If you don’t, the group is an Americana/alt country/roots rock band lead by my man, Clint Singleton and myself.
Back in February, we went up to North Carolina for a weekend and turned a rented house into a studio. We had a blasty-blast and made it out with a lot of new music. The first of those songs has just been released and we are so excited about it. Check it out below and, if you like what you hear, look us up/follow us on your favorite listening platform (like Apple Music or Spotify). Also, check us out on Instagram and Facebook.
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.
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.

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.
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.
Back in December, I got asked to lay down some bass for this EP. Needless to say it was a blasty-blast. Everything except bass (I recorded remotely) was tracked and mixed at one of my favorite places on the planet, Starscream Studio. The EP dropped Jan of 2020 and is available pretty much everywhere so go check it out!
