I have worked most of my life as a songwriter, music producer and audio engineer. Before leaving the U. S. in 2006, I had a professional state-of-the-art ProTools recording studio, production company and publishing house. My small but extremely competent staff did tour management and radio promotion for numerous Pacific Northwest artists.
Here are songs which I wrote (words and music), arranged, recorded and mixed. I had studio singers do the vocals but I did most if not all of the instrumentation on these songs.
I had a band called Politics of Pink way way back in the late 80s while I lived in Los Angeles. For a while we were signed to an Australian record label and recorded a radio single for them called “She Likes To Dance”. Unfortunately, I have no copy of the song, nor do I have any listenable copies of most of the songs we recorded and played live during our active years on the stages of some of L.A.’s coolest clubs. Someone recently dug an old promo shot out of the county toxic waste dump. I just love my big hair, so massive both in volume and weight I am now experiencing problems with the vertebrae in my neck (just joking).
I was able to dig up a few of our recordings.
These are some productions of songs written and performed by the artists on my Speed of Light record label. I did the musical arrangements, production, and audio engineering. Several of these tracks got significant radio airplay at the time of their release as singles.
Although throughout my career I predominantly have focused on pop music, my compositional skills are not limited only to that. I have written for stage plays, websites, and even for modern dance. Here are three examples.
