I had a wonderful time playing with my group at Martha’s Vineyard Jazz and Blues Festival, with Lakecia Benjamin & Soulsquad in Cape Cod, and hanging in Provincetown. Now, getting ready for another super fun recording with Dave Eggar and Chuck Palmer. :)

"Aftermath" on the top USA iTunes rock charts!

"Aftermath" was released yesterday, August 25th. I feel grateful to have been able to record bass on “Lockdown” - which is also the War Story movie theme song - and work with the incredible producers Amy Lee, Dave Eggar and Chuck Palmer :)

O "Aftermath" foi lançado ontem, dia 25 de Agosto. Eu me sinto muito feliz de ter tido a oportunidade de gravar o baixo na faixa “Lockdown” - que também é a música tema do filme War Story - e de ter trabalhado com os grandes produtores Amy Lee, Dave Eggar e Chuck Palmer :

"Amy Lee - Aftermath"

Guys, Amy Lee’s solo record - the singer and leader of Evanescence - is already available for “pre-orders” on iTunes and Amazon. I had the honor to record the track “Lockdown.” 

This was an amazing production by 3 musical geniuses: Amy Lee, Dave Eggar and Chuck Palmer.

I hope you’ll dig it!

Pessoal, vejam só, o disco solo da Amy Lee (cantora do Evanescence) já está disponível para um “pré-download” no iTunes e Amazon. Eu tive a honra de gravar a faixa “Lockdown.” 

Essa foi uma grande produção de 3 génios da música: Amy Lee, Dave Eggar e Chuck Palmer.

Espero que vocês curtam!
