A new twist on an old favorite (or two!). During Wisconsin's shut down orders, I have been involved with a Facebook group called Jump Around Wisconsin. For those who don't know, between the third and fourth quarters at Wisconsin Badgers football…read more

I wrote the backing track a couple years ago after watching the documentary “It Might Get Loud.” It somehow evolved into a li’l tribute to Bob Dylan (Bob really deserves so much better). The words allude to a number of Dylan’s songs: “Like a Rolling…read more

When I made my demo of this song, Nancy said she really liked the melody of the chorus and that overall it was her favorite tune of mine to date, hence the title. I thought the first section of the song would be ideal for a sitar, however I…read more

This one is pretty much your basic bad day. I mean hectic, frantic, crazy, pull-your-hair-out, everything’s going wrong, Junior puked in class and I crashed the car on the way to get him days. Really bad but survivable. Make yourself the main…read more

A track over twenty years in the making. I came up with it sitting in front of the TV with an unplugged borrowed Rickenbacker 360 (thanks, Mark). The Santana vibe just happened. I made a four track cassette recording of it just to get it down…read more

This took a long time... it started with me acquiring VSTs for the Roland Juno 60 and Oberheim OBX and trying to create a retro 80s feel.. I think the light and shade is kind of cool and the synths sound great

The Last Resort would have been too long if this had been included so I did a fade-in to create Part 2... The chords in the verse have a passing resemblance to 'A Few Words For The Dead' by Marillion... I found that out afterwards! There's…read more

It all started with the guitar riff in the verse... The middle eight features a 'call and return' between the Moog and lead guitar which I really like

C.S. Lewis once wrote about the concept of "out of simple evil comes complex good." These are trying times, an understatement if there ever was one. As you read this, you have uncertainties and fears for what our current situation means for right…read more

I love Wilsun's 2020 RPM album "Departure", so I decided to cover it (yes, the whole album), but with a twist. I found some bits to be repetitive, so I removed them. I wrote down the lyrics and chords, and promptly ignored the originals, making…read more

Here is a cover of Matt Ferrara's song "Obey" - Had this song stuck in my head for a good chunk of February, so I figured I would put it to tape. A little slower than the original with a similar feel. I really wanted to see if I could record…read more

Is it surf music? Exotica? Both? Neither? Did Jacques Cousteau have anything to do with this? Percussion on this one by Cyclops Cow and Sum Gai.

Swamp Thing is a custom built guitar by Tony Louscher at Luthier's Workshop in Green Bay, WI. I wrote the main riff three years ago and it sounded "swampy" to me. For the 2020 RPM Challenge, I dusted off the little riff and created this tune…read more

Project X is simply about making music for the pleasure of making music. It’s about playing and experimenting, working the writing and recording processes and seeing what happens as a result.

PX’s first release, “The Dark Side of the Moo,” was completed as part of the 2019 RPM Challenge and released in early March. It’s an eclectic instrumental mix of rock n’ roll sub-genres like progressive, surf, British Invasion, 1960s soul, alternative, and power pop.

Project X returns with the new album, “Are You Sure You’re Not Where You Are?” Born on February 28, 2020, it too was produced as part of the 2020 RPM Challenge. “Are You Sure…” is another kaleidoscope of rock n’ roll styles, this time featuring blues, latino, punk, ballad, and even a bit of exotica alongside surf, progressive, and pop. Regardless of the diverse styles, “Are You Sure…” is a cohesive album and shows marked growth.

from Appleton, WI, US
