Your Distant Glance (Original) MASTERED
Your Distant Glance (Original) MASTERED Track number: 3 Year: 2014 Album: Magnetic North Genre: Other
Here's another smooth jazz piece I just recorded. This is my first recording on a DAW, having recently moved away from a Tascam HDD (which I used to record my previous compositions). So much more freedom of sounds, editing, effects/processing and instruments! Enjoy!
Storied Life (Original) MASTERED
Storied Life (Original) MASTERED Track number: 2 Year: 2018 Album: Vectors Genre: Rock
Here's a tune that I finally got around to recording, and features a good friend of mine Josh Dougherty on lead guitar. Thanks bro!
Leave That Thing Alone (Rush cover) MASTERED
Leave That Thing Alone (Rush cover) MASTERED Track number: 3 Year: 2015 Album: Magnetic North Genre: Progressive
Special thanks to Mike J. for laying down the lead guitar track for me. His PRS was a perfect match for my Rickenbacker to make this Rush cover really get close to the mark.
Your Love (The Outfield Cover) MASTERED
Your Love (The Outfield Cover) MASTERED Track number: 4 Year: 2018 Album: Magnetic North Genre: Rock
This song showcases me on guitar, bass, drum programming and both tenor and falsetto vocals. It was really about layering here, and I'm happy with the results. Since the falsetto sounded 'off' to me, I brought a tenor melody in front to give it a personal spin. Enjoy!
Venus in the East (Original) MASTERED
Venus in the East (Original) MASTERED Track number: 5 Year: 2018 Album: Vectors Genre: Other
Here's a stab at a smooth jazz track in the vein of Joe Sample. Fender strat, synths and an Ibanez bass round-off this track with drum programming.
