Catch the Gold is an alternative, electronic, comedy album, which is a throwback to the dance music of the 80’s and 90’s that influenced me. I was lucky to collaborate on this effort with a variety of my talented friends.
My main collaborator was the beautiful and talented Kelly Karst who sings on “Droid Cream”, “Motor Boat,” “Move on through Me” and “Catch the Gold”. She brought all the sexyness to the music, which is why the album is rated PG-13.
David Cobb played his funk nasty bass lines on “Spirits Rising” and “Eye Candy”.
Forrest Lee shreds his guitar on “Motor Boat”
Catch the Gold was a great collaboration with Kelly, Sean Barrelz, an amazing rapper in Brooklyn New York, Clayton Hable who plays saxophone and Andrew Peterson who to played his Moog Synthesizer.
“Looking at the Sea” is my new age bollywood song which has Kelly, my good friend Tatiana Kallman who recorded her vocals in Germany, Ramin Yazdanpanah on didgeridoo and Silviu Ciulei who also sings.
Samuel Curtis dropped some groovy keys on “Move on through Me”.
I produced record and sing on “Spirits Rising”, “A Piece of Me”, “The Baddest Kitty”, and “Eye Candy”. I built all the beats on an old Roland SPD-6 Drum Pad and Boss loop pedal. I also played a vintage Lowrey Organ, ipod touch synthesizer, and various samples from Free Sound.org
on a Native Instruments Maschine.
Music was mixed and mastered at Tortoise in the Snare studio's and Sean Barrelz vocals were recorded by Bob Weir in Brooklyn Bull Recording Studios, Brooklyn New York.
This album is dedicated to all my friends with a special shout out to Randy Bibey, Tommy Bibey, Rick Prince, Shannon Bailey, Rodney Nutter Jr, and James Thompson for playing all those drum and bass beats for me while driving me to middle / high school!!
“The Baddest Kitty” is dedicated to my Kitty cat girl’s Cynthia Lugo, Sarah Beth Shapiro and Hayley Heineken among others cat ladies I know.
I hope you enjoy the tunes!
