ABOUT

I've been writing and playing music for over 23 years now. I took some time off to start a family and explore other options but things always came back to music. I've spent 2 years crafting a concept album. 38 tracks were narrowed down to 17. And now I'm working on making a second or possible trilogy out of the stories I have in mind.

We are recording now. Keep an eye on the tracks here to see what we're up to.

If you are interested, please contact me by looking us up and contacting us on FB. Just search for Mulford Drive.

Members Of Band

Currently we are a vocalist, rhythm Guitar and I just hired Leyla I Royale to do cello and some string arrangements. She's just an unbelievable talent. Speaking of talent, our insanely talented engineer/producer Dave at Alley Cat recording in Warrenville IL is filling in all the gaps playing bass, drums, piano/keyboards, lead guitar, etc...
Check us out on Band camp to get some free downloads and follow us on FB to keep updated with where the album is at and what we're up to. Just search for Mulford Drive on both sites.

I have a Martin acoustic/electric, A Fender Jaguar blacktop, a Bohemian black matte Ltd edition, 1964 Eko 12 string acoustic, Mexican Fender strat, A Takamine acoustic, and a fender mustang 2 amp. More equipment will be acquired once it is needed. But our studio has everything we need and more.
