MASTERING: The Narrows – There’s A Ghost In Me
A quiet rainy night enjoying this record I mastered at the end of last year. It’s a gorgeous collection of piano based works with touches of strings and subtle sounds tucked in the mixes. It’s available on iTunes and Amazon.
Check it out:
If you are interested in having me master a future release of yours, please contact me. I love all styles of music. As an artist myself, I know that money is not a commodity most of us have in abundance. But, that doesn’t mean the end product of your work should suffer. I’ve got quality gear and lower than average rates. Let’s talk. =)
Favorite Records of 2012
I know I missed so many great releases in 2012. The first 6 months of the year found me largely focused on wrapping up and releasing my latest record, Respire. However, music is a vital part of my day. It serves a valuable function in my day. I spend a lot of time on the road, in my recording studio, sitting at a computer designing things, retouching photography, etc. The following list shows the releases that were the ones I reached for over and over again in order to maintain the focus and vibe needed on any given day in 2012.
We Are All Ghosts Compilation
The year has kicked off with quite a flurry of busy activity. Design, recordings, photography, mastering, writing music, illness, etc. So, here’s something I unintentionally neglected to mention at the beginning of the year.
Around the end of 2012, a lovely compilation was released that featured my new track “Ignis Gloria” along side some wonderful pieces of music from Cousin Silas, Earlyguard, Fontaine, Ambienteer and many others.
Now you can download it for FREE. Highly recommended. Available here.
New Song: “Ignis Gloria” (FREE DOWNLOAD)
My new track “Ignis Gloria" now available as a free download. Enjoy! A little something to warm up the winter. =)

…And To All A Good Mix! (***FIXED LINKS***)
Over the course of any given year, I have the privilege of working with many musical artists from recording, mixing and mastering to researching music for commercials and films. I’m constantly exposed to a variety of genres. While I have certain genres that I love, there are always random songs that seem to scratch a musical itch in just the right way. They involuntarily end up as part of the soundtrack to life around the house whether it be relaxing in the evening or dancing in the kitchen with my children. I also have friends whose tastes are all over the map. So, to all my dearest friends and those I don’t know as well, here are three FREE mixes of music for the winter that should offer a little something for everyone. Enjoy!
