New Project 2014

Posted on March 2, 2014 with 0 comments

New Project: I started work several months ago on an album that was supposed to be a collection of techno-pop/funk tunes. However, after becoming engrossed in the material, it has morphed into a 14-track magnum opus; a 'chapter' of an opera I've been toying with for a few years about a fellow called Cheeze. It is a blend of: techno-pop/funk; electronica; psychedelia; experimental; jazz; ambient; world and classical--and that's just in one song :) I am now starting to mix the tracks, having finished all recording last week. I have been lucky to enlist the services of a leading mastering engineer in the UK, Pete Maher, who has agreed to master my new album. Pete has mastered, among many others, U2, Depeche Mode, Patti Smith, Nine Inch Nails, etc. I am quite lucky to get this opportunity. He was introduced to me by my dear friend Simon Humphrey, who helped me mix my "Hungry Ghosts" album. Besides me, Simon has mixed The Clash, Jeff Beck, Culture Club. Hans Zimmer, ABBA, etc. I will start taking pre-orders in late March, to help me pay for the new album (I will make a limited run of actual CDs, with cover artwork by some very cool international artists). It will be my version of 'crowd funding' without the crowd. Slated release will be in April or perhaps early May. Please stay tuned. Info at
