The concert with Jon Anderson from Yes (w/ full orchestra) was an incredible success!  Thanks to all who attended. Upcoming this month I’ll be playing with Vox Lumiere in Los Angeles on 9/19 and 20.  I’ve been with these wonderful folks for 13 years now, and it’s been a thrilling journey.  Info on the shows available here:  Vox Lumiere

*****Thanks to all who came out to the Baked Potato for the Altered show!  Not only did we have an amazing time playing for everyone, but we came away with an absolutely stellar sounding multi-track recording of the gig and an incredibly filmed 6 camera shoot of both sets. Steve is editing the video right now and I’m mixing the audio tracks.   Stay tuned for a concert DVD coming your way in the future.

I’ve almost finished mixing the new bug album and we’ll be on our way to the mastering phase very soon..  The Inga Swearingen album is in it’s final stages as well.  I’m so excited to get to share so much music with you all in the coming months.
