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!

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

Weather is starting to change now.  I think the hot summer days are fading.

Cool Links

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.

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. We fixed all of this still using the basic track.  I brought in Nate Ketner and he put down that sax solo.  Out of the Porterville analog sessions, 3 songs made in onto The Real Stuff released in 2006.  We cut 5 more new tracks to go with them. This CD is still one of my biggest sellers.

The Players on Standing in the Shadows are:

Loyd..The Human Vandergriff.  Guitars/Vocal
Dwayne Janzen...Lead Guitar
Bryan Beale........Bass
Ron Greeley.......Drums
Joe Travo...........Keyboards
Nate Ketner........Sax
JoAnn Stephens..Back up vocals

CD was sent to Gateway studios in Portland, Maine to be mastered by Adam Ayan.


Thanks to all friends and fans of The Human Project.

Human News

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. 

Thanks for following Human's Show. Hosted by The Human, of The Human Project. From the Central Valley of California.

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.
