We had a great time mixing at Laughing Tiger Studios in San Rafael, CA just North of San Francisco.
Producer, Brian D. Hardin, was in his element mixing on a SSL console. It was great to experience it. The resulting sound, to me, is so much more alive than anything created in the box (computer). The sonic messages come through loud and clear.
On our way there we went to the Sequoias to hug some trees and feel their quiet strength. The simple beauty of nature engulfs you and gently reminds you that there is so so much more to life than striving for this or that. Reality is more than meets the eye. We must FEEL to access the higher realms.
The biggest Sequoia there is named General Sherman but we agreed to call it Mother Tree instead. While there we shot video for one of the songs on the album, Mother Earth.
We also shot video for another song, In The Center, at a river there. The river was a powerful presence that flowed all around me as I stood on some rocks. There were tons of dragonflys about. The sound of rushing water is good for the soul. I was happy I did not fall in! Ha ha ha 🙂
The album was recorded analog and now is mixed analog. Soon to be mastered for vinyl (and CDs and maybe cassettes. Ya I said cassettes people!…. ha ha ha). Dream Analog will be released January 2020.
My hope is that it will feed you and inspire you to connect within and grow, to create and share your special gifts with the world. We need you. Blessings to you all.

The next dimension is very evident for those who can see it. Great News! The incorporation of this new level into “daily living” is becoming complete. You don’t have to live on the outside of yourself anymore. You were fooled into thinking that was the way. It’s always been an “inside job”. It’s always been an inner journey. Your life is going to expand more and more, but you will be fine. You will be fine letting go of the shore and floating down stream as Carlos Castanada said. For this is a true way of living and navigating this matrix or whatever you want to call it.
You have played small because you perceived it as the path of least resistance. You thought by being small you would be able to get along with others better and not rock the boat. But now, you see that being you is the BEST you can do. It is the only way to be on your true path. That way all the ingredients are there is perfect cosmic harmony for new things, new wonderful things, to happen. New combinations. You must bring your whole beingness into play and not leave yourself out of the equation. You are a beautiful necessary part of it all.
Do a ceremony with yourself and release the old images of yourself given to your by family, friends and even yourself. Release it gently and let the new present itself. The bigger you. The you – you have always been since you arrived.
Just a little update on my new album Dream Analog.
We recorded two more songs live a couple weeks ago. Bass, drums, keyboards, guitar and lead vocal all live to tape. Talk about walking the high wire. If you’ve never done it, it’s something you must experience for yourself. A certain magical synergy is found in those moments where you know you have to get the take as its about 105 degrees in the room you’re in and you just can’t do the song one more time! It’s not a copy and paste situation (as in digital) and so, everyone really must call in the magic. It works.
We have most of the tracks recorded now. James Whelan (Under The Sky) did a couple sessions and added some amazing piano and guitar to several songs. So great!
June Kato has laid down all the bass and Brian D. Hardin all the drums. We just to add a few more keyboard parts, some horns and some background vocals and Dream Analog will manifest in this reality zone!
I’m writing Chapter 2 of the Dream Analog video series so look for that in the next few months. Here’s Chapter 1 if you haven’t seen it. Good things to come!
Hope you are all moving forward on your amazing creations as well! Remember no matter what is going on in the world around you, deep down you are Whole and Fine.
I was inspired to put a take of the first song, It’s Coming On,to some visuals and share it. I hope it gives you a feeling of calmness and strength. This Earth is one beautiful place! Let’s keep it that way. 🙂
Its abundantly clear to those who do the research that musicians have been duped,
people have been duped – music lovers have been duped. Duped into believing that the 440hz standard tuning is a good thing. Once you hear the difference in what 432hz feels like, you know.
Musicians will find their wings un-clipped when they tune to 432hz instead of 440hz. There’s a ton of information on the web and on this site about this.
The biggest difference is that you feel it. I SAID FEEL IT. 🙂
Your music will have a power in 432hz that it never will in 440hz.
