Guitar Duo

guitarThis track shows just how beautiful two guitars can sound together. My guitar was handcrafted in Argentina by Jose Yacopi. It has perhaps the most beautiful tone I have heard from a guitar. Mathew Glass is the other half of this duo. He is playing a steel string acoustic made in the USA by Breedlove. The combination of nylon and steel string guitars gives our recording of "Moon and Sand" a wonderful clarity and warmth.

Piano and Bass

pianoHere is a fine example of how good an upright bass and piano can sound when recorded carefully. This track was recorded live at my home with no editing or adjustments to the sound except for a little reverb thrown in the final mix. My piano playing is enhanced by some tremendous playing by Mark Macintyre on bass.

Vocal Trio

bassThe song "Peel Me A Grape" features Brenda Lewis (vocal), Mark Macintyre (Bass), and myself playing the piano. Everyone was recorded live as it happened, no overdubs. Brenda Lewis is a wonderful local singer. She gives this piece the light and playful character that it deserves.

Vocal Quartet

drumThis ensemble features Tom McLelland playing congas, Mathew Glass playing a Cittern, Brenda Lewis singing and myself playing a Heritage Archtop Guitar. This is the perfect ensemble for corporate events or weddings where a non-intrusive quartet sound is necessary. Two guitars with vocals and percussion is also an interesting and tasteful sound without being overbearing.
