I'm currently working on five out of ten original songs for a new album, titled “Priscilla".
Named both for the piano in the studio, and for the ghost that’s said to haunt the building.
The album will be piano-centered recording, capturing the "spirit of the 70's" singer/songwriters, e.g. Elton John & Billy Joel . The bonus song is a dramatic remake of the classic "Stairway to Heaven", making use of the 9ft. concert grand instead of the usual Les Paul and Marshall Stacks.
I'm playing all of the instruments on this album so far.
NO computer generated instruments or synthesizers.
Ain't nothing like the real thing baby......
Been making progress.. Just not enough hours in the day.....
