Featured Human Project Track

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.

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.

New Home Studio Track

Sometimes when I mess around in my home studio, I come up with something kinda catchy. I felt like this track did just that, so I am sharing it with you.

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.


Little Home Studio. Many of my songs begin to evolve here.

Working on Lyrics for new songs.
