UPCOMING FILM: Speaking of which, that Documentary is tentatively titled "Artbeat of the City" and is currently in post-production by Ailgif Studios. Last year Filmmaker Mary Anne Benner joined me and a few other friends at one of my live appearances. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbMFdCyTr6E
NEW ARTIST COVER: My song "Pictures Of You", a composition from the days when I was trying to write for the General Market, will be covered in an upcoming release by Dutch female vocalist Miriam Brinkman (or Mirjam, as she's known in her homeland.) The song was originally written with an up an coming Teen-pop artist in mind, sort of an Avril Lavigne type breaking into serious Rock. Miriam has been racking up live performances and TV appearances in the Netherlands, and doing alright for it by all accounts!
Pictures of You has been previously covered by French/Italian artist Wania Weller, who's currently being approached to do a French language recording of the song. The goal of all of this? Multi-platinum Songwriter status, of course! Well, OK - "Without a vision the people perish" as some say, so if I ain't dremin', I'm dyin! ;-)
NEW RECORDING PROJECTS: And finally- Salem, OR area producer Charles Normal is being talked to about a couple of possible recording projects involving myself. One would be the Soundtrack/Companion CD to the upcoming Artbeat of the City movie, and the other is a new album by myself. Trust me when I tell you that Charles is world class, having toured & recorded with Gun's & Roses, Frank Black of the Pixies, Larry Norman, and has won awards for his production of Indie blues artist Mark Lemhouse. Keep checking for further updates.
Ciao For Now!
