When I was in London last summer I was lucky enough to have had the opportunity to break out a couple of guitars with the inimitable Jonathan Spottiswoode and co-write a new song with him. This week, while Jonathan was back in New York for a record release event at Joe’s Pub for his new album, “Lost In The City” (which you all should pick up btw), we managed to squeeze in a recording session. Our joint creation is finally underway. I’ve long been a fan of Jonathan’s artistry and it’s an incredible privilege to finally be working with him on a project.

Really nice review for the Carvels ep I produced/engineered recently. These cats are quickly becoming one of NYC's classic rock-n-roll bands. It's been such an honor to work with them, and I'm so proud of them for all the positive attention they've been getting. Pick up yours here:

We've just finished recording a brand new three song ep also; more on the release date for that one soon, and I'm told that there's also a video on the way...
