About two years ago a friend of mine, Scott Robinson (owner of Dualtone Records) saw me perform my songs in a writer’s round at Puckett’s Grocery in Leiper’s Fork TN. After the show Scott told me the same thing that my first mentor and dear friend Richie Havens had told me many years ago. He said I should make my own record and sing my own songs. I mentioned this to my good friend Adam Box (drummer for highly acclaimed country two-time ACM & CMA country duo of the year, The Brothers Osbourne) and he offered to produce a 5 song EP on me. I immediately called on my close friend and great writer Mark Marchetti to co-write the first two songs “WHAT YOU GONNA DO” & “ALREADY DEAD” with me. Once Adam got his hands on them it seemed like it was something that I needed to finish so that I would have some really cool dark songs to be able to give to my TV and Film publishers. In early December of 2019, I had a meeting in Los Angeles with my TV and Film folks at “Anthem Entertainment” and played them very rough mixes of the first four tracks. Their highly positive and excited reaction to getting the finished project in their hands as soon as possible gave Adam and I the green light to get it done as quickly as possible.
My EP is now in the final stages of mastering. My hope is that the songs on this EP will end up on some TV shows and/or in a movie or two, sometime in the near future, and lead us towards more exciting opportunities.
