Featuring the song "Back to the Bottle" by Grady Hoss and the Sidewinders
Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of recording drums and percussion for the soundtrack to Fire Maple Games' new title, Return to Grisly Manor.
The game features an original score by David Decker of NeoSonic Productions, along with percussion parts composed and arranged by yours truly.
Return to Grisly Manor is now available for iOS and Android devices - and features a free version to give the first level a spin without commiting to the purchase.
UPDATE: Hyde has launched a Kickstarter campaign!
My good friend Ryan Hyde builds exquisite bass guitars, and I'm honored to have my music be a part of his vision. Here's a recent promo video for R.Hyde Guitars, featuring music from Megalodon's first release, Edible.
Artisan Luthier Ryan Hyde is building some of the most forward thinking, futuristic bass guitars yet. And He's doing it all by hand.
"I've created a distinct new line of bespoke bass guitars that epitomize the fusion of modern and classic design.
These Instruments satisfy the stringent needs of modern musicians, and address design issues such as weight, balance, tonality, and reliability; Yet each model occupies a unique /original niche in the cloistered world of custom basses.
Bassists are always working to expand the vocabulary of music and I'm trying to expand the vocabulary of the instruments they play."
I recently took a trip over to NeoSonic Productions and tracked some drums and percussion for this commercial. So, buy a house, I guess?
UPDATE November 2015: Due to some Hollywood wrangling, the title of this picture has been changed for publication and release. What once was Makin' Wookie is now Jedi Junior High!

I recorded drums and percussion for the soundtrack of this soon-to-be-released documentary.
The music was written by David Decker of NeoSonic Productions, and it was a lot of fun recording (and engineering some of) these tracks! Stay tuned for the film's impending release
A year or two ago, I recorded percussion for the soundtrack to this great independent documentary, and it's finally out! The film was screened at the 2014 Philadelphia Film Festival, and is poised to premiere on the west coast this summer. I could explain it to you, but that's what trailers are for right?
Featuring some inventive bucket-drumming, this tune is part of the recent record Goin' on a Journey from Rockstar Nutritionist Jill Jayne. It was a great time making a racket, thanks in no small part to the percussion mastery of Spencer Inch.
From Jump with Jill's website: Goin on a Journey: Songs for Every Body was released in 2010 as the follow-up to Get Me Goin, this time for preschool-aged kids. It was considered for a 2012 Grammy nomination for Best Children's Album. The Journey travels to healthy choruses about fueling your choo choo train with healthy foods, giving new foods a second try, doing jumping jacks like Jill, dancing The Water Polka, wearing sunscreen when you're having fun in the sun, getting your bubbles on at bath time, brushing your teeth before bedtime, and dreaming about doing it all again tomorrow. The 15-track CD comes in a recycled digipak that includes the lyrics on a 10-panel fold out poster.
