About Look East - To say this album was a labor of love would be a gross understatement. I learned so much through this long process, most importantly, I think I should just stick to writing and performing music. Myself as an engineer, not so much. This album went through a lot, it's the little album that could, if you will. Unfortunately, parts were lost, drums had to be rerecorded, and guitar parts as well,... and it goes on and on. Chuck Sabo (Bryan Adams, Elton John, Tina Turner, XTC, Cher) who engineered and played on my first album, and who is a glutton for punishment signed on and started this album with me. About half way through, he moved back to London. And there went the studio. So, a trip to England ensued. That's where Rej ap Gwynedd, and Kenny Dickenson come in. After returning to the States, and letting my liver rest, I needed to figure out how I was going to finish this album. I'm proud to say, I recorded a lot of this album at home on a very tight budget, and all the while banging my head against the wall. I also needed to find a new drummer. Fortunately, I had met Brian Lutz years earlier at some random/ goofy gig I was doing. I kept his business card for years before I ever called him. Funny how things work. Brian and Charles have been bangin' it out with me since May 2008. Charles has been with me since the summer of 2006. This album reflects real songs, recorded by real people; I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. My head is all better now, I think. Much Thanks also goes out to all of the companies that support what I do: Taylor Guitars, Dean Markley, Tom Anderson Guitars, Hermida Audio, Evidence Audio, Fuchs Amplifiers, George L's, Bock Microphones, and Freudenhaus Eyeware.
