Some Cool Projects I've Worked On Recently

  Colorado-based singer/songwriter Eric Elison's voice bears an uncanny resemblance to Gordon Lightfoot. I produced a five song collection of GL's biggest songs for Eric to use as an entree into the tribute artist arena. Here's a montage of the results.

It's quirky, it's peppy, it's poppy.  Check out  the "Haughty Auteur"   "...he sports a fez and a monocle, he's impervious to ridicule."

   I guess these things come in waves. I've had occasion of late to produce a number of 60's covers for different clients. Pete McIlroy, a longtime fan of folk duo Ian & Silvia, commissioned sweet new versions of four of their biggest songs. The very next week, JD Buhl flew in from Oakland to sing a medley of "Everybody's Talkin'" and "Everybody Loves a Clown". (Gary Lewis & the Playboys, don'tcha know!) And I'm staying in the 60's groove for the rest of the month recording a new batch of ten songs for our app, "Sing Harmonies", including more retro stuff: Beatles, Paul Simon, CSNY, and others. Mighty fun to revisit songs from my salad days!
   Here's a taste of a 2017 instrumental of mine that turned out quite well. It's not a 60's cover, of course, but to me it does sound reminiscent of a 60's movie theme. It's called "Dance of the Catalan Gypsies".
Nick Carter (No, not the Backstreet Boy and not the private detective) is a singer-songwriter who's threatened for years to record an album of his original material. He's finally decided to pull the trigger and the first four songs we've tackled came out great. Here's a sampling.
