Since I moved to Los Angeles, Loren Battley has become such a good friend it’s easy to forget that she’s one of the best singers there is. She sings with some of the biggest artists in the music industry and sounds amazing in a wide-range of musical situations.
I thought it would be fun if we tried to sing the beautiful Jason Isbell song, “If We Were Vampires”. It took me a couple of weeks to figure out what to do on the Rhodes since Jason’s guitar part is really hard to make sound good on keys. Of course Loren showed up and nailed her part on the first take (it took me a couple me a couple more than that).

This was today’s improvisation and thought I would share the live video. It starts with mellow vibes and turns into a wrangling of the electrons. I hope you enjoy!
Here is a new piano video of piece called “Galloping Gorilla”. I originally wrote it for some students a few years back and decided to make a legit recording/video of it. It’s a short one and you can watch it here…

Today I was improvising with three of my old inanimate friends and thought I would share the result. The red keyboard on the top is called a Nord Lead 2 and I’ve probably had it since the year 2000. The little black synth sitting on top of that is called a Moog Mother-32 and I used it for the bass sounds by playing the keyboard in the middle. The bottom instrument is an 88-key Fender Rhodes.
I hope you like it!
Here’s a new video of a piano piece that I recently recorded called, “Prelude in E”. It’s a short little piano piece that floats somewhere between classical, jazz and probably a few other things. I hope you like it!

I wanted to share a recent recording of a piece I wrote called “Service”. Usually each day I try to write at least one new piece, song or progression. This was a personal favorite and I was going to only record the main theme. But at the last minute I decided to improvise after the theme to see if anything cool would happen. Let me know what you think!

Since I had the stems to Charli XCX’s “Claws” I used them to experiment with some emo chords with synths and pianos to create a downtempo version. You can download it for free here…
