Check Out My New Recordings

I finally got a chance to record some clean demo tracks of several songs. I hope you’ll check them out. Please go to my “Listen” page and then to the first four links under “studio tracks.” Or you can click each of the songs below:

These demos would not have been possible without Scott Giambusso, who not only played gorgeous guitar on each track but also engineered the recordings. Amazing. I’m grateful to him and to his New Door Productions. If you’re considering doing some recording, get in touch with Scott and New Door by clicking here.

These new tracks sure beat the others, which you will notice were rather primitively recorded (wax cylinders practically) during some of my live performances. But you’re welcome to check those out, too, especially if you like a little extra “ambiance” with your music.

Hope you like what you hear.
