music in progress
Six albums
A new demo for The NOLA Treblemakers is in the process of being recorded. Selected tracks include "Cry To Me" so far (more to come soon).

Another Speakeasy Serenaders LP is coming! We'll know what we're putting on it once we get together in the studio so stay tuned for our selections.

An acoustic album with a mix of minimalist vocal-driven songs and lush, thickly orchestrated low-key numbers is currently being recorded. Songs include "Ascent", "Iso", "Broken Joe", "Midnight Was Always Too Early", and "Afterword".

The next four Jak Is A Four Letter Word volumes are currently being recorded. Among the finished tracks are "Next Day Comes Hard", "Fever Dream", "/ Glut / Rut / Cut / Shut /" and "It's Still Too Early To Deal With Last Night".

Also in the works is a collection of songs with a vaudevillian flare, many of them I composed and performed for burlesque and variety acts over the years. Songs on this one include "Cirrhosis", "Pastel Currency", "Raffle Song", "Glass Medusa" and "Narcissus Stomp".

The follow-up to 2014's rock album "Action Packed Self-Destruction" is being written and recorded. Planned tracks include "Earworm", "Some Kind Of Beautiful Racket", and "Cyanide".
