Yes, I’ll play on your recording!
While I truly enjoy engineering and producing, my first love is playing keyboards. Whether behind the keyboard or the computer my priority is helping artists achieve their artistic vision. My motto remains “Serve the Song.”
Amazing musicians have been coming to the Wash n’ Dry or emailing files from cyberspace, asking me to add my tasty vintage-keyboard, Hammond organ and Steinway flavor to their tracks. Recently, I’ve performed on tracks for Steve Winwood, Joe Clausell, Ben Wisch, Richard Perso, Bruno Oro, Thor Madsen, Rick Price, Amy Lennard, Teddy Goldstein, Jesper Dupont, Alec Berlin, Frank Ippolito, Greg Kavanaugh, Ed Littman, Horace Scott and Jon Szenics, among others.
If you’d like me to play on or produce your music please don’t hesitate to ask. I offer reasonable rates, quick turnaround time and I guarantee you’ll be satisfied with my tracks, whether we work together in person or collaborate online.
My keyboard collection includes:
Pianos:1933 Steinway B (6’10”) with a rebuilt action (1996/2007) It sounds warm, present, full and thick- great for jazz, rock, pop etc.
1907 Steinway O (5’10”) that was totally rebuilt in 2004 by Faust Harrison. It has a mellower, but more dynamic tone than the B.
Hammond CV Organ (moded with percussion and reverb to be like a C2) with Leslie 21H (3 speed mod: Chorale, Tremolo, Brake)
Vintage Keys: Rhodes Stage 73, Wurlitzer 200A, Hohner D6 Clavinet, Moog Minimoog Model D, Moog Prodigy
Synths: Nord Stage 2, Oberheim Matrix 1000 (2), Roland Fantom, XP 30, and JV 1080, Nord Lead 2, Casio Privia PX3
Soft synths: Arturia V Collection 3 (Mini V, Modular V, CS-80V, ARP2600 V, Prophet V & Prophet VS, Jupiter 8-V, Oberheim SEM V, Wurlitzer V and Spark Vintage), Reason 7, G-Force Melotron, Arp Odyssey, MiniMoog and OsCAR, Vienna Instruments Special Edition (Orchestral Library), UVI String Machines
Plus vintage tube amplifiers and countless effects pedals.
