Brian Wilson & Jim James "Right Where I Belong" (Cover) 

"Right Where I Belong" is a new song by Brian Wilson (The Beach Boys) & Jim James (My Morning Jacket), released alongside the new Brian Wilson documentary "Long Promised Road."

A new Brian Wilson song is a real treat and cause for celebration. Yesterday I had a fun time picking apart the chords and singing a shortened version of the tune, piano and voice style. If you haven't yet, go watch the fantastic film!

Old School 80s BMX Bike Footage ✨🚴✨ Compilation 

Short compilation of 80s era BMX bike footage.

Starts with segments from the cult classic film "Rad," and then shifts into some more obscure and lost-to-VHS fuzzy memories. Music: "Air Man" by Will C.

Other Shores, Other Worlds 🌎 

"Other Shores, Other Worlds" is a new song, but the familiar feeling it evokes is drawing from a forever cycling vibration the cosmos are sending out even right now, at this very moment.

Composed on a long lost to time, recently resurrected Synergy I synthesizer. In its heyday, this unique instrument was used extensively by music icon Wendy Carlos, whose credits include film scoring for Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" and "A Clockwork Orange," as well as "TRON." The Synergy was a contemporary of the Nintendo Entertainment System, and sure enough, sounds are loaded onto the synthesizer via old school video-game style cartridges. 

Music As A Lighthouse 

the feeling you get 
when you're looking for the next song 
to really connect with 
whenever your head strong 
there's always a playlist 
always a lost gem to get you through phases 
and then when you find it, you're outta your head 
your into the skyline  
and centered again

Above is a set of lyrics I wrote yesterday while working on a new song. Music is a very special gift. Life can be difficult at times. My hope for you is that in every phase of life, you can pull from the infinite well of sound and rhythm, and in doing so, you can be empowered to carry on and weather the everchanging forces this world presents. 

music: Lighthouse (Parts 1 and 2)

Supermoon 🌕 (Under The Supermoon) 

Under the Supermoon we met...

Waltz time side quests ✨ The chorus section is my take on "Sunflower"-era Bruce Johnston through a hypnotic prism.

Thank God for the Casiotone MT-100 keyboard I found in the furniture section of a local thrift store for $7.99.

I launched Harmony Integrative Therapy, LLC today. I guess it's only right that on the day I open a Music Therapy private practice, I share a composition of mine that is supposed to represent jubilation and constant elevation. I hope you enjoy it.
