The Creepers You Tube

Image
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!

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)

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.

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 …

I recently hosted a show on my podcast called "Raw Human."  I played lots of stuff I recorded in my home studio. Much of it was acoustic driven.  I received some nice comments on it, so I wanted to make sure all friends and fans had access to it.

Here is the link:

Raw Human On Podomatic.

About 2 years ago, I wrote a song called "My Flag."  In light of recent events, I decided to re-record it in my home studio, and do a video with it.  This has been well received as well.  Here is the YouTube link.  I am also releasing "My Flag" as a single available for download on CDBaby and other sites as well.

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

Image
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 Sp…

Human Project fans world-wide continue to amaze  with their support of the Human's music.  The fans are a special group of people who dig The Human's style and his lyrics. It is hard to put his music in a box or category, its simply can best be described as Human Rock. He has is own style that draws from decades of listening to music and ultimately this shows up in his music.  Even more exciting for all Human Project fans is a new CD is on the way in June with 9 new original Human Project tracks.

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."
https://www.cdbaby.com/cd/humanrocks2

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…

Studio session is winding down.  All Tracks mixed and we are entering mastering phase.  Six tracks are coming out of Pyramid Studio in Fresno, CA.

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

Pyramid Studio Session. March 18th, 2017

The Human was back in the studio for the first time in over 3 years at Pyramid studio's in Fresno, CA

This studio, with Jerry Leal as engineer has a very hot sound. When The Human visited it, he liked the feel of it right away and booked a session.

For this session, The Human got some of the hottest players in the central valley to back him. Two of them have sat in with him many times.  They did not disappoint and the tracks are the hottest raw ones he has ever got.

The Players for these core tracks were:

Dwayne Janzen.................Lead Guitar
John Dees.........................Bass
Ron Osborn......................Drums

All songs written by The Human.

Other players such as keyboards and sax will be brought in to finish up.

Here are a few pics of session for you.

Featured Human Project Track

Image
Every so often, I am going to feature one of my songs, and talk to you a little about how it came about.

The first one is "Standing in the Shadows."  I wrote this song in 2005.  It was recorded in Porterville, CA at the Sound Garden Studio.  This studio was an analog studio, one of the few left around.  It was one of the last tracks we recorded in these sessions and we had not rehearsed it much at all. The basic track you hear on the Real Stuff, 2006 is this basic track.  We got it in one take.  I then brought in a really good back-up singer named JoAnn Stephens to lay the back-up vocals. Hope you checked her out good.  She got an offer to go to Nashville in 80's.  In 2006, I took the analog tapes to Fresno to Fast Traxx studios.  He had a machine that would allow me to load songs from Porterville sessions into his Pro Tools equipment.  I did this with Standing in the Shadows.  I wanted to get this track a little hotter and the drums did not sound good. We fixed all of t…

Lots of snow in the Sierra's which are so close to me I can see from my house. Snapped a pic that does not do justice to them. This is also lower elevations.


Sierra Nevada's.

A couple of tracks on this show, "For What It's Worth," were done in my home studio. These are stripped down tracks. Raw if you will. Kinda digging this right now. For What It's Worth is a Stephen Stills track from 1967. Its about Riots on Sunset Strip.  Ya Never Know is just a light little diddy about you just never know what might happen.

Hope to get into real studio soon.

Happy New Year!

Hope the year is off to a good start for ya!  Lots of rain and snow in Central Valley of California. We need it.

I have been putting way more effort into some new songs, and have at least 5 new tracks written.  Looking for a studio. I want a change.  Trying to get in touch with Dana Long whom I worked with on Human Project II, Humanized.  Hard to get in touch with that man.  But I will keep on his butt. Have good players lined up. All have played with me before.  They are part of Human Project fabric.

Thanks for following the Podcast and listening. I have been doing it for 6 years. Just a hobby.  Love to share music with friends and fans.
