Vagabond Opera: The Zeitgeist Beckons
I’m proud of the new record and it is the first full length album other than my solo work that I’ve produced.
Lesley Kernochan: The Pickle Jar
One of my favorite albums ever. Brilliantly conceived and executed, it’s a genre defying masterpiece! Even if I hadn’t played cello parts I love on it.
M Ward: Post-War
I played cello and bass on the track “Poison Cup” before I knew who Matt was. I remember thinking there was a Roy Orbison quality to the song and liking it. I really like the way the strings sound has a mellotron quality, and recording to tape.
Julie Larson: Open Roads
This album was my first record writing string quartet arrangements on paper. the link is to reverb nation where you can at least listen to some of the tracks. Proud of the work I did here with Julie and producer Tony Lash. Beautiful songwriting!
Richmond Fontaine: Lost Son
Simply one of my favorite bands ever! Amazing short stories in the context of songs.
The cello is minimal, but textural. I enjoy all of their work, but contributed to these two records.
Richmond Fontaine: Post to Wire
The Stolen Sweets:
Shuffle Off To Buffalo
These folks rock it twenties and thirties style, with tight harmonies and slamming swing!
It was an honor to put together string arrangements for this album, and I’m excited to be working on their next!
Jennifer Batten: Whatever
Jennifer is an insanely gifted guitarist who’s worked with Michael Jackson and Jeff Beck.
In the process of her new album, she discovered that midi strings just don’t bend and shift like the real thing. She brought me in put the organic touch and brush stroke one track with cellos. A compelling listen of guitar mastery and quirky instrumental music.
