Update December 2008
this might become a big update. Haven't gotten to it all year.
The most exciting project over the last 12 month was the production
of the new John Enghauser record.
14 awesome tracks, available on CD and i-tunes etc. January of 09.
Dicki Fliszar played the drums. John played the bass, keyboards
and a bunch of the guitars. I layed down some guitar and recorded
and co produced the album. Christian Kaufmann, an old Berklee buddy
of mine, helped with Percussion the final mix and Mastering.
I finished the single 'the distance' feat. Brent Anthony. last
week. It will be available on i-tunes and Amazon by Mid January.
Also recorded some new material with Anzu Lawson. Check out i-tunes
to get a hold of her songs.
Rockstar Camp this last summer was amazing. my staff was once
again from around the world. we had more kids then ever. lot's of
stressey fun. We recorded over 200 songs in 10 weeks. pretty crazy.
There were definetively some hits in there.
My racing season turned out to be a little on the back burner with
all those projects going on, but I managed to win the Masters States
Points Race championship again. Second in the Pursuit... that's
what happens when you slack in your training, haha.. Last but not
Damian Brell, artist from New Zealand.
We started the project a couple of weeks ago. ended up putting
out an EP two weeks ago. Go to Myspace.com/Damianbrell to check
out some of the material.
The musicians in the band include: Dave Henning on bass, Karoly
Kiss on drums, Michael Saltz and myself on the guitar.
As many of you know, the Viper room showcase went really well.
All the expected industry people showed and really liked what they
heard. Let's see what's going to happen next. Inhouse showcases
are allready planned.
I guess that's it for now. I'll try to follow up a little sooer
