The newly released video for Dylan Owen’s single, directed by Brian Petchers, perfectly captures the nostalgic, and heartfelt message of the song. So proud to have produced this instrumental, alongside Skinny Atlas. Shout out to the songs mix engineer Billy Centenaro, for making my acoustic guitar sound so good!
Junior’s Blues featured on Discovery’s Vegas Rat Rods
It’s a cool experience when a music placement helps you learn about a sub-culture that you didn’t know existed.
My track “Junior’s Blues” has gotten a lot of love recently from the Discovery Network, and was featured on Episodes 9 and 10 of the series “Vegas Rat Rods”
I’ve learned that rat rods are the grittier, no-frills cousin to hot rods. As described on Wikipedia, “Originally, rat rods were a counter-reaction to the high-priced ‘customs’ and typical hot rods, many of which were seldom driven and served only a decorative purpose. The rat rod’s inception signified a throwback to the hot rods of the earlier days of hot-rod culture—built according to the owner’s abilities and with the intention of being driven. Biker, greaser, rockabilly, psychobilly, and punk sub-cultures are often cited as influences that shaped rat rodding.”
2019 Collaborations: Motteo, “Desperate”
Motteo is an emerging alt-pop artist releasing his first EP, I’m desperate for you, in summer 2019. Set to punchy synth textures with catchy pop melodies, Motteo writes about a deficit of intimacy. Fascinated by intimacy and relationships, the artist writes about his experience and what he’s witnessed in modern dating and social/online life.
I worked with Motteo in NYC in late 2018 developing his demos into fully produced songs. I also produced the vocal recording sessions and edited and mixed the EP’s vocals.
The first single off the EP is “Desperate”, which explores the anxious longing for lost love.
2019 Collaborations: Dylan Owen, “Fingerprints”
I have worked with Dylan Owen since 2006. He is one of the most unique and original voices in indie music. I was really happy to work with him on the single “Fingerprints” from his latest album Holes in our Stories.
I performed acoustic guitar on the track and produced the instrumentation alongside upstate New York’s producer extraordinaire, Skinny Atlas.
“Fingerprints” and Holes in our Stories are available on all major streaming platforms including Spotify and Apple Music.
