RIP Geoff Emerick

People around Nashville knew that in December, The Beatles' studio genius Geoff Emerick, was coming to town to record my next EP. I was thrilled and honored to work with Geoff and so thankful to have gotten to know him. He was a kind and humble english gentleman and he created some of the best sounding albums of all time. I am truly saddened by this huge loss for his family, friends, the music industry and myself. RIP Geoff and thank you for the music.

Thanks to the Foo Fighters for the inspiration!

I'd like to thank the Foo Fighters for their rockin and inspiring performance in Nashville and for letting me hang out backstage with so many great people. Dave Grohl has been an influence on me since the early 90s when I was learning his Nirvana drum parts note for note. He has become one of the greatest rock n roll songwriters of our generation and he continues to inspire me with his music, documentaries and concept albums. It was a treat to meet him and see that he is a truly cool, humble, compassionate, funny and sincere person. Thanks for the inspiration Foo Fighters!
