The new CD is all done now and due out the first week of August. I just wanted to give you a little info on it to know what to expect.
Its called "Soul Sessions? because to me, thats what the recording sessions were all about. I produced the CD along with Bud Harner and Steve Sykes engineered and mixed it. Most of the record was cut in LA with Steve Ferrone on drums, Mitchel Forman on keys, Ricky Peterson On Hammond B3, Luis Conte on Percussion and quite a few bass players, Nathan East, Andre Berry, Alex Al and Dave Carpenter. One really cool thing that happened as a result of this atmosphere of friends coming in and out is that one day Steve Perry stopped in to say hi to his friend Steve Ferrone ( one of the perks of having a ?Drummer to the Stars? playing with you). We all thought it was pretty cool just to have the singer from ?Journey? at the studio. We were recording a ballad that I had written and during a play back Steve says to me?Man, I could really here this vocal line going along with your guitar?. Of course I had the engineer set up a microphone immediately and the next thing you know, I?ve got STEVE PERRY singing on my record!!!
