Hello one and all,
In February of this year I was lucky enough to be called to Austin, TX and begin the making of Ray Bonneville’s 9th studio recording, adding piano and accordion. I’ve known Ray since the 70’s when we played together in Colorado, and it was a real joy to be back in the studio with him again laying down a variety of smokin grooves with some great new Bonneville songs. It was a thrill to be working with Ray as well as other wonderful players including; Andr...é Bohren, Geoff Arsenault, and Gurf Morlix, all engineered by the ingenious Justin Douglas at King Electric Recording.
I’m encouraging you to check out his Kickstarter Campaign and all the cool donation rewards, which includes everything from the new record, all Ray Bonneville recordings, permanent guest list status, and your own house concert, among others. With 8 hours and counting, we're down to the wire. So give a little, give a lot….it’s a good thing. $150 left to hit 2500.

One and All, Please take a minute to check out this Ray Bonneville Kickstarter. Ray is raising funds for his new record. I was in on the basics, recording in Austin, TX, with the fabulous Justin Douglas engineering at King Electric Recording ( https://www.facebook.com/pages/King-Electric-Recording/658213274333906?ref=br_rs ). We captured some great moments and smokey grooves. I am honored to be working with Ray as well as Andre Bohren, Geoff Arsenault, and Gurf Morlix. Great songs, great players....check it out!
