NEWS FLASH!!! Singer-Songwriter/Multi-Instrumentalist Unveils One-Man-Band ROCK Record on the INTIMATE AUDIO label:

Yep! It finally exists. After four years of slow boiling... Unbelievable! Please check out my brand-new “full band” album of original compositions, MANNERISMS MAGNIFIED (now available through, iTunes and AMAZON.COM), featuring me performing all the instruments (voices, guitar, bass, real acoustic drums, piano, accordion, and mandolin). I also produced, arranged, engineered, and did all the artwork/illustrations—intimate audio AND visual, lol! (Details can be seen in my YouTube: ALBUM PREVIEW/documentary.) I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Meanwhile, if you're in the mood to do some serious reading, below you'll find links to some (non-magazine) articles I've written (these include information about legally recording/distributing cover songs on CD, details that may help you obtain a job as a transcriber/arranger, if that interests you, etc.), as well as several syndicated musician articles (courtesy of MusicDish Network), including songwriting tutorials, music promotion tips, how to become a better performer, publishing and copyright stuff, interesting interviews, file sharing perspectives, internet radio, and gear reviews. You will also find home recording 'how to(s),' and more! I intend to update this page often, so please check back :-)

Oh yeah! And if YOU write an article and ever feel like posting it on INTIMATE AUDIO, feel free to let me know. If it relates to the independent music biz, I'm sure we'd love to host it!
