Directed by Abby Epstein (W**d The People) and Produced by Ricki Lake (The Business of Being Born), the filmmakers trace the shocking 60 year history of how hormonal birth control, despite it's prevalence has been linked to depression, autoimmune disease, cervical cancer, fatal blood clots and other chronic conditions; yet it is still prescribed to healthy women as a panacea for every hormonal and reproductive issue and ultimately weaponized against communities of color.

Under The 'Covers' #26 - Jet - Featuring Kelly O'Donohue

First released in March of 1974, 'Jet' was actually the first single off the classic Paul McCartney and Wings LP, "Band On The Run". Probably the most famous feature of this big rocker is the mystery behind the true meaning of the lyrics which have over the years defied all attempts description and decryption. Over the decades McCartney was quoted at various times explaining that the song was inspired by a family dog, a pony and even Linda McCartney's father. We will likely never know! What we do know is we have a special guest with us on Jet - on Trumpet, Flugelhorn, Trombone and Sax by way of Berlin, we are happy to have Kelly O'Donohue. Kelly has toured, recorded and performed with numerous artists across Europe. Pat Wolf is killing it on ferocious, powerhouse Drums. You can catch Pat with his band, Decades, A Musical Journey of Rock & Roll, all around the NYC area. Holding down the bottom on Bass Guitar is a favorite return guest, songwriter, producer and performer Andrew Weiss. Check out Andrew Weiss and Friends on Spotify to hear his new EP "Lookout Mountain".

Under The 'Covers' #25 - Walk On By - Featuring Katia Floreska

We are back from a much needed hiatus to kick off a new series of classic tunes so why not start with a song that is the very definition of ‘A Classic’, Burt Bacharach & Hal David’s legendary Walk On By. First recorded by Dionne Warwick in 1963, it has since gone on to be recorded by innumerable artists from Aretha Franklin and Laura Nyro to Paul Rogers and Sheryl Crow. Giving Ms. Warwick a solid run for her money, our recording features a very special guest vocalist, the marvelous Katia Floreska. Katia is a New York based singer, musician, songwriter and voice-over artist who has collaborated with many notable artists through her ever expanding career such as Johnny Thunders, Ronnie Spector, Roberta Flack and Valerie Simpson. Katia currently performs live with NYC’s beloved institution, The Losers Lounge. She also continues her solo and collaborative music projects including 2F with Roger Fife (formerly of Heavenly Creatures). Her performance on Walk On By is simply outstanding and marks a fantastic kick off to Under the Covers Series 2.

On flugelhorn, we are also happy to feature another special guest, Will Allen Jr. As well as being a multi-brass instrumentalist and top-of-the-line player, Will is a composer and producer (thebrass Productions) with over 20 years of experience and he absolutely crushes this key element of Walk On By.

The stalwart and rock-steady, Pat Wolf, is back to provide a super-smooth and jazzy backbeat on this one. Catch Pat with his band, Decades, A Musical Journey of Rock & Roll, all around the NYC area.

"Under The Covers" Series 1 Compilation .... our Greatest Hits!!

As we are well into the process of preparing a second series of "Under The Covers", we thought it would be fun to put together a compilation video of some of the more notable musical moments from our first series - kind of a Greatest Hits collection. Between April of 2020 through April of 2021, we produced a whopping 24 songs/videos. This video starts with a couple of quick clips of two of the earliest, nearly solo tunes (just drummer Pat Wolf and myself) and as the compilation progresses, the performances, arrangements and collaborations expand. I would like to again take the opportunity to send out a sincere Thank You to all of the supremely talented singers and musicians that jumped in to help this project grow and hopefully have had some fun in the process too! New "Under The Covers" tunes featuring some marvelous special guests will be coming up soon in Series 2 shortly, but until then settle in and check out our year in review!

College Sports, Inc. (Trailer)

Friends! Please check out College Sports, Inc. on Vice TV - This superb documentary directed by Patrick Dimon and hosted by former Olympian and NCAA athlete Jeremy Bloom and will premiere on Vice TV tomorrow, June 9th at 9pm.

It investigates the exploitative relationship between the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and student athletes from it’s inception in 1906 to today. I'm proud to say that I performed as the film’s sound mixer and provided all audio post production services under the auspices and leadership of MCM Creative and their amazing and talented team. #ViceTV #MCMCreative #MCMCreativeStages #soundmixing #audiopost #tomgambale

There are a lot of people getting rich off of college sports—except for the student-athletes.
