Here are the posts from  my old site.




I really need to start updatding more often…

The recording I did for Der Golem by Black Francis was finally released and is now sold out. Keep an eye on his site for more Golem releases.

Eric Drew Feldman’s band Knife and Fork is just about ready for mastering. And we also just remixed a song he did with P.J. Harvey about 14 years ago. Not sure if it will see the light of day, but it sounds great.

Zigaboo‘s record is sounding really good and coming along nicely and should be done in the next few months.


Recently in the studio with Zigaboo working on some new tracks for an upcoming release as well as some soundtrack stuff. Recording basics for

saxaphone player Earnest “Squeak” Brown for his second CD.


Had a great session with legendary saxophone player Pharoah Sanders for Alonzo King’s Lines Ballet. Here’s a picture. Sweet.

Did a cool session at Hyde with Emi Meyer for a Japaneese release. Also completed a record with Hardly Strictly Bluegrass founder and

Wrongers banjo player, Warren Hellman.


I can’t believe it’s been six months since my last update. I really should update more often…

Let’s see…

Did a couple of sessions with Ian Brennan. One with Brittish band The Cedars and one with guitarist Kyp Malone from T.V. on the Radio.

Recorded Black Francis for a soundtrack to a silent film called Der Golem at Hyde Street. Really sweet. Eric Drew Feldman, Ralph Carney, Joseph Pope, Duane Jarvis,
and Jason Carter recorded 30 something cues for this movie and then they performed it live at the Castro Theater in April. I believe there are plans to release it soon!

Here’s a picture of me (with funny hair) and Black Francis (or Frank Black) with EDF in the background at the Castro theater. (Thanks for the pic, John!)

We’ve been busy over at About Records. Both Tim Hockenberry and Larkin Gayl CDs have been released. George Daly and I made a great slideshow for Larkin’s song, “I Do”

And in the middle of making both those records, we made a record for Heidi Roizen called SkinnySongs.



The Peter Case CD, Let Us Now Praise Sleepy John, has been nominated for a Grammy in the Best Traditional Folk Category! Sweet!
