From Vietnam to Afghanistan


I have always been a student of history.  I actually taught it for 19 years in high school before changing careers in 1995.  I am also old enough to vividly remember the Vietnam War.  I had lots of friends serve, or were drafted.  Some did not come back.  I was not drafted.    I have always thought there were and are a lot of similarities to Vietnam and the war in Afghanistan.  The main one is an enemy that blends in with the countryside, and fights in an unconventional, even cowardly manner.
You can never get them cornered.  Superior military force will not get it done.  Several years ago, when we decided to increase our military presence there, I wrote a song called Taliban Man.  Ultimately, this song draws parallels between the two wars.  Being familiar with Vietnam and the key players like Robert McNamara, of course will help you understand more.  I feel the youth of today unfortunately don't learn enough about the Vietnam War.  I have the greatest respect for our troops that fought there.

So with that little intro..click the link below and listen to, "Taliban Man."

I recorded this in my home studio. I play all the instruments.

*I do not publicize this song much or promote it very heavily.

I let CDBaby distribute my music to all music and download sites. They also keep track of sales and give me detailed month sales reports.  The month of October was my best month of downloads and sales ever since I started all this in 2006.  One of the main reasons was my new CD, "Humanize," finally got into all distribution sites.  And it hit hard.  The top 6 downloads were all from it.  Overall, there were 18 pages of downloads with close to 300 downloads for the month alone.  Huge.  I am greatful for the fans I have all over the world that step up and purchase my music like this.  Amazing.

How bout this New Country Music?

Well how bout it?
It comes from the Nashville Cookie cutter factory.  They have their formula down.
All highly compressed, loud, studio musicians got the formula down too. It perfect to a fault.
Clean, sterile, pro-tools, digital.  Its lost some of the soul of the old school guys who wrote their stuff drinkin whiskey and smokin Malboro's and chewin Copenhagen, traveling in grimy tour buses
and playin dives. But man they had the soul and sound.  They brought this into the studio with them.

I decided to take a crack at a Waylon Jennings song, "Are You Sure Hank Done it This Way."
It's far from perfect.  Some issues in the track, but the video and pics I put with it try to make the point about the old school music.  I don't write or record country songs, but I sure as hell was brought up listening to em.  I know what I listen to today is pretty thin stuff, except for Chris Stapleton.  That guy's the real deal.

Anyway. Here is the link to new video.  Go back and listen to some of these old school guys.
They brought the road and the lifestyle into the studio with them.  Might wanna sip on something while ya listen.

With Halloween right upon us, The Human's song "The Creepers,' has been getting tons of hits and plays.  It's a creepy track about ominous things happening in the inner cities when there is a full moon.  He was so into this track he sang the final lead vocal late Halloween night.  The song is from Human Project II, Humanized. It was mastered by Steve Fallone at Sterling Sound NYC.  Steve mastered Keith Richards most recent effort and is one of the top mastering engineers there.

New YouTube



For What It's Worth is really an iconic song of the 1960's peace and love movement. Written in 1967 by Stephen Still's of Buffalo Springfield, it has become literally a soundtrack for this time period.
The Human has done a sparse, acoustic driven version of it in his home studio.  AC Myles came over and put an absolutely stunning lead guitar track on it. The pictures you see in the video try to tell a visual story of key seminal moments from that time up to present times.  So in a sense, The Human is trying to make the video and song relevant for today as well.  It would be impossible to include all the important pictures of events that occurred from then to now. The 60's were full of seminal moments.

So, please enjoy The Human's version of, "For What It's Worth." The link is below.

The Human has written close to 70 original songs from 2005-2017.

He has released 6 CD's. 99% are original tunes.

Human Raw II

Greetings!

I just did a show on podomatic called "Human Raw II."  Like the first show in this series, these are songs I recorded in my home studio.  They are for the most part, acoustic driven.  I play almost all the instruments, and on some tracks I bring my friend AC Myles over to add some lead stuff. He is a killer player. 

Human Raw II, is similiar to I with maybe a couple of new tracks, and some older ones mixed in.

This is the link to the show.

New YouTube Video and More

Today's world environment is horrible.  Most recently, a brutal mass shooting in Las Vegas.  There just seems to be a lot of hate, instability and intolerance all around.  So, The Human decided to record "Get Together."  It was written by Chet Powers.  It was made somewhat famous by The Youngbloods version in 1967 during the Peace and Love movement. That is what we need more of now.  You can file this away in The Human's Raw series, since it was recorded in his home studio.  Enjoy.  Share it.
It you haven't subscribed to his YouTube Channel, here is the link.

The Creepers You Tube

Greetings friends and fans.

Back in 2007-08,  when I was working on Human Project II, I wrote a song called "The Creepers."
It's an eerie track about what goes in deep in the heart of the cities in the alley's and other dark places on a full moon night. :) The track ended up having a haunting, scary vibe to it.  The Creeper's are "people, or things" that emerge from these dark alley's on such nights.  Dana Long did absolutely killer guitar work on this track.  Just listen.  I was so into this vibe that I did the final lead vocal on Halloween evening.  I consider "The Creepers," to be one of my strongest best tracks.  This entire CD was sent to Sterling Sound and mastered by Steve Fallone.  He is big time, and his touch gave Human Project II, Humanized just a killer sound.

Finally in 2017 I put together a little video to go with the song.  Since it is getting close to Halloween, I decided to put it up on my YouTube Site.  So, check it out!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Hw-xOcbhyo

Also, I am getting some Human Project "Humanized" T-Shirts made. They are pretty cool. If ya want one, $20.00.  Let me know.

Updates September 2017

Hey Friends and Fans.

Did Summer fly by or what?  As far as the Central Valley of California was concerned, a frickin scorcher HOT.  Many days at 105+ and had some 110+.  The only saving grace is low humidity, but even had some of that higher than normal on some days.  Glad It's Sept and I hope we work our way out into some nice fall weather. Not to mention Football season is starting here in the USA, my favorite time of the year!

If you haven't subscribed to my YouTube Channel yet, It's picking up steam with some of my songs and more and more discover "The Human."  (Just who is this guy anyway???)  Some songs getting some lots of plays.

Here is the link again. I stay pretty active there. Put up stuff from Home Studio. (Raw)

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEwITPUKfFPfjsf9iZ6EFag

I had been working on a short little diddy called A Blue's State of Mind. It's only a little over 2 minutes long.  I finally got AC Myles to come and add some slide to it to go with my guitar and some harmonica I had put on it.  The end result, while short is pretty damn catchy. It is part of my RAW series, because it is in my home studio, pretty stripped down with no drums etc.

Blues State of Mind.

CD sales and downloads continue to be good.
The Most popular tracks off Humanize are:
Fast Train
Bar Room Meltdown
Highway 58.


Everyone stay cool.  Will be back with another update soon as I can.

New YouTube Videos

Hello Friends and Fans. Hope all is well. We just can't shake the oppressive heat in the Central Valley of California and the bad air.  106-110 this last week of August.  Mercy.  Hoping to get  a break with this stuff soon as the days start to get shorter.

I made a video to go with my song "Dakota" that is on Humanize.  Here is the link if you would care to check it out.

Dakota
Click Link above.

AC Myles on lead guitar. Recorded in my home studio.


I just finished writing and recording "Evil On The Loose."  I brought AC Myles over again to put a guitar track on it, and he lit it up as usual.  One thing that really bothers me is racism and hate. And one race thinking they are superior to another.  If these "types" had not marched on Charlottesville, there would have been no issue there. But just know when the Klan and Nazi's march, resistance will show up as it should. And it can be from passive to aggressive.  Its just the nature of the beast when hate comes to town.  They bring it on their dumb-ass selves and their really is no defense of it. First Amendment? Yep. But shaky.  Dumbasses asking for trouble? Double Yep.

CD Updates

All the tracks on the CD are complete.  All the tracks have been uploaded to Disc Makers out of New Jersey.  They have done all but one of my previous releases.  Artwork has been sent in for them to work with.  If all goes well in this area, could be officially released in mid-July. This recent effort took 3 months from walking into the studio to the finish.  I think it will be one of my best, certainly one that defines my style maybe better than the others.

Here is link to You Tube of "Fast Train."  A typical Human Project Rocker.

New CD Updates. May Downloads

Greetings Human Project Fans.

The new CD is taking a little longer than expected.  I take blame for this. I am working hard on the mixes to get them as good as I can.  The songs are good. They deserve to sound as good as they can.

Right now the tracks are being mastered.  I lucked out and got a killer mastering engineer who is mostly retired now, but agreed to work on my project. His name is Jeff Sanders. He was worked on BTO, War, War with Eric Burton, Stevie Wonder, REO Speedwagon and a host of other artists.  So I feel very lucky to get him on my project. He has moved to the Central Valley of California where I live, so it has made it easier.

I still see an end of June release. It could erode into early July, but I want to get this one right in all phases.  Nine new Human Project tracks, and the first new CD in 3 years.

May was an awesome download month for Human Project Music.  16 pages of downloads. 35 different songs.  Lots of European downloads as well as USA from sites like Spotify and ITunes and other sites too. This provides great momentum for da music as the new CD is about to be released.

Top Downloads for May 2017

The Human With Jerry Leal of Pyramid Studio's 
Fresno, CA


Was in Seattle recently. Home of Jimi Hendrix.

Loyd got the nickname The Human in his early 20's.  So when he gets guys together to play live or record, this group is called The Human Project.  There is little demand for original music in the Central Valley where he resides, so he rarely plays live anymore. If the right opportunity presented itself. He would.

This will be his 6th CD. His music sells world-wide.

About finished mixing. This is the stage where The Human gets particular about things. Drive the engineer crazy time.  Because if you let it out after this, too late. If anything bothers you at all, you better fix it now.  It's hard to live with it once its out there.

This CD is as close to live Human Project as you will ever get.  Very similar to 2006 "The Real Stuff."

Six tracks were recorded in one session at Pyramid Studio in Fresno.  The Drums, Bass, Human Rhythm and Lead Guitar are what you hear on this CD in their original state.  Keyboards were brought in. AC Myles was brought to add some hot guitar work.  Sharon Jordan Leal of Eve's Burden was brought in to spice up harmonies and add some soul.  Mission Accomplished.  There is good variety on this CD from just finger poppin Human Project Stuff to killer blues, to hard rockin stuff like Take it All.  Two Tracks will be added from The Human's Studio and one Hidden Track will be on it as well, so only the hard core will find it will be only on the CD. So there will be a total of 9 Human Project Tracks.

In Case You missed it, here is promo link.  The tracks were more raw at this stage of production.

Studio Updates/New CD

Updates New CD



The last blog updated you on how the Human Project Sessions went on March 18, 2017.  During this time, the basic framework of 6 tracks were put down.   Since this time, The Human has been editing the tracks and bringing in other players to fill out the tracks.  Dan Bates from Fresno was brought in to lay down Hammond tracks. Special guest artist AC Myles was brought in to add his slide guitar work to one track and some good southern rock licks to another.  Finally vocals and harmonies have been added.  So we are at the mix-point now, moving closer to the mastering stage.  Also, The Human has 2 or 3 more tracks from his home studio that he is going to add to the final CD.

Here are a few more pics from Pyramid Studio in Fresno, CA
