ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Singer / Songwriter / Producer Todd Tate leads the new recording and performing group “Life Love Misery”. A rock player with a jazz background Todd studied Jazz Composition and Arranging at San Jose State University with a minor in Audio production and Film Scoring. Studying with the likes of Steve Erquiaga, Randy Masters, Matthew Brubeck, Dan Wyman, and The Late Allen Strange, Todd developed a keen ear for the song. Moving to San Francisco in 1992 Todd played with many bands through out the 90’s such as Boogieman, Colorwild, 7 Arrows, Rotoruter, Trench, Truman Peyote, One Light Out, Resinmen, Resin, and into the new millennium Resin 7, King Money Shot, The Deep Sounds of Bobby Peru, and his Dobro playing alter-ego "Sayla Dobro". Also co-owning The Blue Room Studios in San Francisco from 94-97, as an Engineer Todd worked on Grammy Nominated Latin Jazz release "Ritmo Y Candela - African Crossroads II - Carlos "Patato" Sanchez, and attracted super star band Train into the studio to work on their Sony Double Platinum release. Clearly a resume in SF Bay Area music too long to list on his new project Life Love Misery short Bio. See www.myspace.com/toddtatemusic for more details.

Todd’s penchant for rock performance and audio perfection led him to a clandestine meeting with 2 other talented player/engineer/producers and a host of talented string players.

Kenny Stavropoulos’ career as a rock drummer has enjoyed many highs such as performing the Earth Day Concert in front of 250,000 people in attendance with “The Starship”. Also touring Japan and the States with Shred band ”Cacophony” Kenny cut his teeth with some of the sharpest players in guitar god rock. Enjoying his time in Marin, Kenny also played an instrumental part in recording many Marin based acts such The Mad Hannans at his Bay Street Studios. Kenny truly enjoys the art of drumming were every move is a performance, and plays according to the reason we are all here: the song. Mr. Stavropoulos is looking forward to showing the audiences his skills in rock drumming with Life Love Misery. Kenny was instrumental in getting the production of this collection of songs recorded.

Mario Previti, bassist, engineer, producer & songwriter began his professional music career with Massacre Records' recording artists Psychosis in the 90's. This initial foray in the industry propelled him into recording and touring opportunities across the United States and Europe thus fueling his desire to delve deeper into studio engineering. During 2004-05 he attended the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences where he studied under the best in the business. Upon graduating with a 4.0 GPA he quickly moved into one of the biggest studios in California, The Plant Recording Studios where he worked with top engineers & artists as a 2nd engineer. Mario is currently Chief Engineer & partner at Renegade Studios in San Rafael CA where he was instrumental in the renovation after taking the room over from Marin County Rockstar Sammy Hagar. Mario designed the acoustic treatment layout as well as the equipment specification in addition to assisting with the control room calibration. Mario and Renegade Studios were happy to take this project to the next level completing the tracking and mixing of this fine collection of songs.

Another clandestine meeting happened with the meeting of Marin County Violin player and orchestrator Graham Pellettieri from Notesmith Music. Graham took Todd’s hand scored calligraphy and took it to the next level in professional arranging and presentation. “I have the scores for everything, it was work that needed to be done”, explains Tate. “Most strings players are classically trained so they need the score in front of them”. “I’m ready like an orchestra pit, call me Beethoven”, jokes Tate. He explains that he “speaks their language” and simply told Mr. Pellettieri guidelines like, “here is the lead sheet; arrange for quartet, closed voicing’s, no thirds, the guitar and melody will define modality”. The talents of other strings player such as Vanessa Montgomery, Heather Houseman, Sarah Rayban, and Catherine Johns helped bring the project to fruition. “I am blessed with good company” Tate says with smile.

"Life Love Misery are where my rock songs go", explains Tate, sun gleaming off his dark sunglasses. "Either it is a whimsical love song like Delightful or a dark slinky rocker like Beautiful One". "I can’t wait to get out and perform live with the string section", Tate adds eyebrows rising above his mod Raybans. "Strings are something that Kings and Queens have enjoyed for hundreds of years", he stops as to regain his thoughts, concluding with "I want to treat myself, and my fans to a new sound of rock with strings". "It's not a band with a string section; the strings are part of the band".
