April 2016

2016 has been busy indeed!  Sessions with Banks, Conor Oberst, Ruby Amanfu and Aimee Mann; orchestrating a project for arranger Jon Brion; performing live in LA and SF with Celebrating David Bowie, a 3 1/2 hour non-stop career-spanning show; and even a reunion performance with dear friend Grant-Lee Phillips at the legendary McCabe's Guitar Shop in Santa Monica, California has kicked off the year in high gear.

The next taping of Live form High Fidelity podcast takes place April 29th, when my co-host Tom Desavia (see photo) and I welcome special guest Jon Brion to our show.  We'll be taping the episode at Jon's home ground of Largo at the Coronet after his monthly residency show.  Records will spin, Guinness pints will flow, and Jon will perform a few songs for the assembled crowd.  See the Events page for details.

The Section Quartet is gearing up for some special projects later in the year so stay tuned for updates and announcements.  '

Oh, and my buddy Tom has just published a cool book about the early LA punk music scene.  You can buy it here and soon the audio book will be available!
