Darrin James - Strange Storm
Ranging from singer-songwriter lyric poetry to aggressive odd meter funk, this offering from Darrin James is a response to the many and varied ills which plague modern life. With special guest features from Detroit's Queen of the Blues Thornetta Davis and a powerful horn section of Dan Bennett, Tim Haldeman and Ross Huff.
The Continuing Adventures of the Butterfly Kid
An incredible collection of talent has come together to support Jim's artistry and craftsmanship. My french horn debut is on the song "10 feet tall." Click the album cover to stream or purchase.
Seth Bernard and May Erlewine
Produced, Recorded and mixed by Tyler Duncan, These songs are being released on a special bag of Higher Grounds coffee to benefit 350.org, the first in a series of seasonal fundraising collaborations. Available in the Earthwork digital store, "We Can Change (Our Own Minds)" and "Siren Song" features Trevor Hobbs on drums, I contribute flugelhorn harmony on the chorus.
The Macpodz - Underwater Encounter
In this fifth release by the collaborative ensemble, the core of rock n roll, funk and jazz compositions are augmented by spoken word and found sound. Underwater Encounter explores ideas of modern transportation and communication, inquires about our evolving relationship to places and spaces, and invites introspection while the good china rattles off the shelves. These songs came together as the band searched for its identity during a period of uncertainty and change.
