Scarborough Fair (Pop-Punk Version)

A group of people I met on reddit have been doing cover songs to get us through the pandemic. Here is our latest:

The arrangement of this took some time. Those time and feel changes were tricky. Lots of Bad…

Creep - Radiohead cover

I met some random strangers online and we decided to do this cover of Radiohead's Creep. OH THE ANGST. Great song - but watch out for F-bombs :)

Just Another Day - An Original Christmas Song

An original Christmas tune. A guy on Reddit asked me to sing this song he wrote. I like the tune and, despite being a huge fan of Christmas, sometimes we all feel a little like a Scrooge :)

Always Come Home - Original Christmas song

I wrote and recorded an original song with strangers I met on the internet. It was supposed to be a total throwaway - an exercise in songwriting - but it turned out extremely awesome so I'm sharing it with you…

Wings of Eternity with Heylel

I was asked to contribute vocals to Heylel’s re-imagining of their song “Wings of Eternity.” Such a lovely folk ballad with beautiful violin. Heylel is a progressive rock band from Portugal. I met them through my prog band Philhelmon and…

One Love - International Collaboration

Here is a very special project in this time of seperation due to Covid and racial tension. I’ve been contributing to this in the last two months… sax, vocals, composition, lyrics, guitar, video editing. I met these folks online and…

Come Together - Beatles Cover by Philhelmon

I have a confession to make... I actually started this recording in 2016! That’s when the footage is from. I’ve got a huge backlog LOL. Lots of great things started that I need to dig into and finish.

For those…

Can You Forgive Her - Pet Shop Boys Cover

A great song in 12/8 time originally done by the genius techno band The Pet Shop Boys. Really, these guys are criminally underrated in my opinion. Check out their melodic and quirky album “Very.” Great song craftsmanship. Any of their…

Epitaph - King Crimson Cover (Acoustic)

A stripped down version of King Crimson’s Epitaph. The acoustic guitars were played by Poor Li who I believe is from France. When I recorded Philhelmon’s version of this song, one of my youtube subscribers directed me to Poor Li’s…

No Matter What - Badfinger Cover

I finally had a chance to record my own version of the one of the greatest pop-rock songs ever written. Bad Finger’s No Matter What came out in the late sixties and has everything I look for a in a…

Snow - From White Christmas

Every year I try to do a christmas song. I do this in place of a christmas card! I’m a little late finishing our Christmas song this year. That’s because this song is more complex than it sounds. Margie and…

Time After Time - Cyndi Lauper Cover (With Luis Ventura)

A long over-due collaboration with my friend Luis Ventura. He played the doctor in the musical Next to Normal at our local theatre. I’ve always liked this song. Cyndi Lauper’s performance was so melodramatic and so is the original music…

Marvelous Things - Eisley Cover

A song by one of my favorite “modern” bands - Eisley. Funny story, I actually started recording this song years and years ago. My acoustic guitar is in the shop and I thought I might as well finish this one…

I Want to Break Free - Queen cover

I met Kate Barret this past year in production of Jesus Christ SuperStar that we were in together. We became fast friends and promptly decided we needed to collaborate on a Queen song. Now, you don’t just cover Queen -…

Lo How a Rose - Christmas Carole

My family’s Christmas card isn’t usually an actual card. Instead Margie and I like to record a Christmas song and make a video. This year we went with Lo How A Rose Ere Blooming - a slightly lesser known song…

Say Say Say - Michael Jackson & Paul McCartney Cover

I recently finished another fabulous collaboration, this time with my friend Ali Luey. I’ve known Ali since the year 2000. We have been in numerous musicals together over the years and I just knew her voice and vibe would be…

Mouse in House

Mouse In House is a series of four stop-motion animated shorts by Portly Pig Studios. These stop-motion videos utilize taxidermy mice (don't worry they died of natural causes) in an 1800s-esque setting. Portly Pig did a fabulous job creating custom…

Shine - Collective Soul Cover

I finished my cover video for July. This is a version of Collective Soul's "Shine" which was a fixture on the radio as I was growing up in the grunge era. I am very happy with how this turned out…

Shades of Time - Heylel Collab

Heylel and I joined forces and completed a music video to go with our recording of "Shades of Time." Please check out the rest of their album! Their album is gloriously moody and epic.

Shades of Time: CD Release Party and Availability of Album

Heylel's album, Shades of Time, has been officially released and sounds fabulous. I should know, I have been playing it on a continuous loop at high volumes in my car. 

The album is now available on Spotify for streaming:

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…

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…
