Studio FB Live Session 024: Continue On

In session 023 I tried my hand at creating by allowing Logic to create a drumbeat for me. It was a lot of fun and ended up coming together very nicely. If you haven’t seen that one yet, I would suggest going and checking it out. It was a lot of fun. This week was […]

Studio FB Live 023: Fresh Start

I love being able to walk into the studio with no idea at all and walk out with something created and moving forward. That’s what this week’s Studio FB Live Session was all about.

Studio FB Live Session 022: Creative Boundaries

Some days I struggle with creative inspiration often because of the endless possibilities that are before me. Which way should I go? What idea should I tackle first?

Studio FB Live Session 017: Stranger Things

This session of Studio FB Live is all about music for tv/film. I have a pretty cool opportunity to be able to begin to create some music for tv/film. This is really exciting for me because I have always had this secret desire to score a film, so this is the start of a journey that […]

Studio FB Live Session 016: Collaboration

During this weeks session of Studio FB Live, we are talking all about collaboration. I recently had the wonderful opportunity to team up with my good buddy John Staub to work on a track we are calling Home. It was a grand experiment because John and I had never worked together before, but we decided to try it […]
