ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ARPEGGINA

When writing this tune, I was definitely inspired by Eric Johnson. The tune's melody is built around arpeggio-style riffs and the uplifting major key keeps it fun and energetic. The mood is a warm summer day with good friends, good food, and good times.

DR. FUNK 'N STRUT

This tune is a strong groove with attitude. I imagine some zoot-stuit wearing playboy strutting into the casino and the room goes quiet. Everyone stares at him as he struts across the floor exuding cool. The ladies love him, the men want to be him; all suave and dripping with style.

KICK IN THE TEETH

This song is straight ahead, full power, throwing down the hammer! It carries an aggressive thrust but it's not an obnoxious make-your-ears-bleed thrasher. Yes, guys and girls can tap their feet to the beat…they just need to tap really fast.

LAID TO REST 'NEATH FIELDS OF GREEN

This track is a moment of pause to remember those in our military that have paid the ultimate price. I am so thankful for all of our service men and women. It is so easy to get caught up in day-to-day life, that we can forget those that are deployed and serving our country. And for those that have given their lives, this song is a quiet moment to remember them.

THE HEAVY

A Zeppelin-esque assault. The opening mandolin and guitar piece gently carries you away to a beautiful English countryside. You enter the local pub as the band kicks into a stomp groove and gets the crowd worked up, waiting for the electric guitars and driving bass to tear it up. The electric journey begins; it grabs hold of you and does not let up on its grip until the song concludes.

POUR TOUT L'OR D'AVALON

This song is a smooth journey through Avalon; a fantasy adventure involving knights, gold, a princess, and a round table. There are twists and surprises in the tale and you will need to use your sword to defend the honor of the princess.

TOP DOWN PCH

Driving in your favorite convertible, this track comes over the speakers and life is perfect. Sunshine, a fresh breeze, and the ocean off to the side paint the scene as you journey down the road with this melody as your guide.

FLEEING POTIPHAR'S HOUSE

This song is chase; a race to escape from a lavish palace. The middle-eastern scale lulls and tempts you, seeking to pull you back. You must be strong. You dodge and hide around corners, behind the pillars in this enormous palace, but ultimately you make your escape.


RAIN FOR A DAY

A gentle and refreshing swing on the porch as a cool summer rain trickles down. The melody relaxes as the mood refreshes.

THAT CRAZY ITALIAN SURFER FROM AN ALIEN PLANET

A definite homage to Joe Satriani; the legato phrases are dripping all over the neck of the guitar. The main groove is a triplet-over-the-four and you will not be able to sit still once this song starts; the body will naturally begin to groove and move.

VEIL, LACE, AND SHADOW

This is a mysterious, acoustic song, set in a dimly lit, 19th century estate. There is a masquerade ball taking place and you are slowly walking through the room. Nothing is in focus; nothing can be clearly seen, and you know not where the night will take you.

MAS BANANAS

This is purely a good-time, party song. I wanted to create the vibe of being in Sammy Hagar's club in Cabo, when Sammy is at the mic, rocking' with his band, and everyone is having a fantastic time. Cheers.
