Shades Of Time: Heylel

It was an honor to be invited to sing on Heylel's new track "Shades of Time." Their manager, Kathy Keller, is the same manager as my other band, Philhelmon, which is why I came to be asked. The song has a great "prog meets early Sabbath" vibe. I'm very much looking forward to hearing the rest of the album as well!

Next To Normal

I've been cast as Henry in Theatre of the Grove's production of Next To Normal. Check out my gig calendar for show dates and times.

Ave Maria

Instead a Christmas card, I like to record a classic Christmas song each year as time allows. This year I went with Ave Maria by Schubert.

Merry Christmas all!

Philhelmon: Visits, Videos, & New Album

A lot has been happening on the Philhelmon front. Henk Bol came and visited us here in Oregon, USA and we did a lot of work for the forthcoming album Perpetual Immobile: Epistemic Impossibility. 

We shot a lot of video, did some recording and jamming, and basically just had a great time!

Here's a video we shot where we collaborated with Portly Pig Studios.

Sympathy

Sympathy was originally recorded by Rare Bird in 1970 and was very successful in Europe. I had never heard it until Henk suggested we record it. Lots of fun shooting this video at my farm house with Greg West and Tiger Brooke.

I Talk to The Wind

I Talk To the Wind was originally written and recorded by King Crimson. We shot this video at the Oregon Coast at the Wreck of the Peter Iredale and Fort Stevens.

I would be remiss if I failed to mention Philhelmon's new website! Check it out - there's a lot to explore:

Johannin: "Uh Oh, Here We Go!"

The Johannin gig was super fun. I picked one of my favorite performances form that night and added the lyrics to the video (since they go by pretty fast). The camera audio is pretty rough, but it's still a good representation of the gig.
