I have not thought about this record in a long while.
In 2005 a fellow engineer, Andrew Solin, referred Katie to me as he was busy.
Katie and I and her band holed up in a soon to be torn down, once lived in by Orson Welles, 200 yards from Bjork’s house old bungalow on the Hudson and recorded this record.
In reality I was more of an assistant engineer to Riley McMahon, but it was good work, a great record came of it and it was a hell of a lot of fun. I wore a gnome hat for most of it.

Lenny’s secret is out!!!
40 years ago to the day after Bowie’s release of “Boys Keep Swingin” Lenny Zenith covers this classic!
I’m proud to have recorded and mixed it (at Seaside Lounge and The Whelping Box) and to have played bass, guitar and sang on it.

My brother-in-law and his family came to visit for about a week. He told me he was “brushing up” on his piano skills…
He has a gift for understatement.
It was great to hang with him (it’s a rare occurrence) and it was great helping to have somebody to help me work the bugs out of a new controller, new midi interface, etc.
So Lenny Zenith teamed up with The Revolver, a young DJ from Mumbai, and the result is this.
Vocals by your humble recordist… me.
Available on iTunes, Google, Amazon, etc.!
(this is not the super secret project)
Lenny’s secret project is done.
I called the files “Final” so…
…it must be true.
Here’s me and Lenny Zenith working on a super secret special thingy.
Well, sax anyway.
Haven’t posted in a while as I’ve been… well… dealing with shit… and organizing the studio. However…
Jeff Hudgins stopped by The Whelping Box to put some sax parts down for a song Lenny Zenith is working on…
You may know Jeff From Rembert & The Basic Goodness…
…or Bombay Rickey
And here he is!
A while back I recorded another live show for the amazing singer songwriter (and far too infrequent bandmate) D.B. Rielly.
Live From Chester Connecticut is getting national (and I think international) airplay and some really good press! For example:
– Donald Teplyske, Fervor Coulee
