OJ heads up north with his buddies Kelly Van Camp and Garey Shelton to play rockin' roots music designed for dancing. The food and drink is pretty awesome, too. Don't be late!
I've played on well over 500 CDs, commercials, video and movie soundtracks, and various software and gaming applications. To name a few, CDs for Laura Love, Ranch Romance, Laurie Lewis, Sylvia Herold, Jim Page, Jerry Douglas; soundtracks for movies; Georgia (Mare Winningham, Jennifer Jason-Leigh), The Wooly Boys (Peter Fonda), Georgia Rule (Jane Fonda, Lindsey Lohan) TV; Frontier House (PBS), Software; Complete Encyclopedia of Baseball and Musical Instruments of the World (Microsoft). I can play dobro, lap steel, weissenborn guitar, electric and acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin, and sing lead and harmony vocals for your session. For prices and scheduling contact me at email@example.com.
You can also work with me thru the website SoundBetter. It's a clearing house for session musicians, mixers, engineers, etc. and I've done work there for folks from all over the world. Look me up at SoundBetter.com
I've produced more than 20 CDs for other artists as well as all my own discs. It's a fascinating process which I regard as advanced problem solving. Each album presents different challenges, involving playing, arranging, engineering, mixing, emotional support, practicing psychology and combinations of many or all of these. I've worked in several genres (bluegrass, singer-songwriter, rock, blues, etc.) If you need a producer for your project let's talk. For consultation, prices, and scheduling contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
