I have been recording and performing with singer/songwriter Karen Feldner since around 2015. I sing, play guitar, banjo, bass, dobro, and whatever else I can muster up that suits the song. In 2019 she released four EPs in The Collection: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. The EPs are available on all major music streaming sites. We also recorded performed the songs for corresponding video collections you can watch here. More information about our work together on her website.
I played bass and sang harmony with singer/songwriter Diane Ward for several years in the 1990s. I still jump on stage to sing with her whenever I can, and I have sung on just about all of her albums. Below is a playlist with a few highlights. I play bass on the first three songs and sing harmony on tracks one, four, and five. You can find her albums on most music sites.
In 2017, I played bass with singer/songwriter Darrell Arnold in a monthly residency at Luna Star Cafe in North Miami. Over that time, we also recorded the album Changing World. I believe it’s some of my favorite bass playing on record. You can find him on most music sites.
For much of the 1990s, I played bass in Amanda Green’s band. We recorded three albums together. The playlist below features a few highlights. You can find some of her music online, but she seems to be mostly undercover. And be wary – other artists are out there with the same name.
The first band I was in that played our own songs was Broken Spectacles. Ed and I were songwriting partners. We diverged onto our own paths in 1994. In recent years, I have provided background vocals on some of his music. The playlist below features some highlights. You can find him on most music sites.
2 Bottle Sunday
For some years around the 2010s, I was in an acoustic trio with Jamie Lee Ganger and Danica Rodriguez. They both wrote great songs, and we had a knack for vocal harmonies and arrangements. During this time, I got my first ProTools setup and ventured to record and mix a 2 Bottle Sunday album. Below are a few of my favorite songs, the first and third of which benefitted tremendously from the work of my amazing cello-playing friend Wells Cunningham. I played the rest of the instruments on the album, which you can find on most music sites.
I never played with Mary on an ongoing basis, but I recorded on a few of her songs. On the playlist below I play banjo on track one and bass on track two. You can find her on most music sites.
I was a busy boy in the 1990s. Brian Franklin played guitar in my band, and I played bass in his. Below are a few highlights. I’d include more songs, but it’s hard to remember which ones I played on. You can find him on most music sites.
