So here's my deal with the blog. The blog is for people who really want to "go in".  By that  I mean, in this section, I go into details and really tell the story of whatever's happening. My Facebook feed at the bottom of this page generally has the same topics  with the same subject headings and dates, in a super condensed version.  I know... it's all about the time management.

MUSIC - Releases re-imagined

I love remixes. Ever since the 90's when the remix really came into it's own, I've been a fan. When I get the chance to hand over one of my songs to another producer to re-imagine, I welcome it. You just never know what they'll bring to it and the song lives another life.  I've posted a two songs below in their original versions,  Brooce Swayne and Summer Sky, along with their remixes by two seriously gifted producers, Darren Solomon and Matt Henderson.  I thought while I was at it, I would share the original version of Screaming Headless Torsos’ Running Black Water from our 2014 album,  Code Red along with the new live version featuring special guest Hiromi on piano released in July 2017.  Songs re-imagined.
