The Human Project

May 2019


Hope all is good with Human Project fans.  The Human has about 4 new songs in the can, but is waiting to see what he wants to do with them.  He will probably release a single soon with one of them.  He will let you know which one soon.

Spring 2019


Spring has finally arrived after a long wet cold winter here in the Central Valley of California. After releasing the "download only" Fadin to Gray," in late January, The Human has been working mostly on single stuff. He has done a couple of killer covers in his home studio working with AC Myles.  The first one is Something Big by Tom Petty. It is playing on the main home page here. The second one is a tribute to Buddy Holly with a rousing version of his "Not Fade Away."  He put the video in his You Tube section here on his website.  He will release one or both of these sometime this summer.  Appreciate all your outstanding support all these years. From 2006 "The Real Stuff," to 2019 "Fadin To Gray."  All possible because the fans keep pushing him on by downloading and buying his music.  The best!

Keep Rockin!

Hello from the heat stricken Central Valley of California where we are in a long stretch of 100+ degree weather.  All is good with The Human. He still hosts Human's show on podomatic and still works in his home studio mostly when we writes and records. He did complete a new single called Connection, a Jagger/Richards track, but it is more patterned after a version Montrose did off their Paper Money release in 1974.  He has NOT released this yet.  There will be another CD down the road, not sure when or what will be included.  Human Project Fans are the best. Knowledgeble, informed, and cool people. Thanks for your support.  

The Human Has another site with very good info there. So Copy and paste this link and check it out too!

New CD Update


CD is bogged down in mastering.  Difficult to explain. But I just won't settle for something I don't like, so I am standing firm on getting it like I want it. Very sorry for postponements, I am as disappointed as you are.  It is possible it could get finished this upcoming week, but I am not counting on it. It has been over 6 weeks since I finished the final mixes.  The artwork is ready and I have things ready as far as liner notes for CDBaby.  I am still hoping for Mid to late April Release. Thanks for hangin in there with me.

Mastering New CD


I just returned from a 10 day vacation with my wife to Maui.  

New CD News:

All the tracks are now complete.  We have entered the mastering phase now and Bill Sayre at Fast Traxx should have been working on this while I was gone. I would say maybe one more week on this. Once the tracks have been mastered, I will send the disc off the Disc makers where they will design the artwork and duplicate and package the CD. This could take up to a month. It will then have to be distributed to the various outlets that will sell it for me. CDbaby will be the primary selling site for the physical copy of the CD. It will be available on ITunes and other web hosting music sites.  This will be The Human's first new release in 3 years.  This disc will be more diverse than some of his other releases.  It has a killer blues rocker with AC Myles on lead guitar. It has a somber slow track that brings back memories of the 60's and Procal Harem and Lee Michaels layin down Killer B3 Hammond.  It has a Mellencamp type rocker, and a country tinged track too. It will have 9 total tracks..7 new original Human Project Tracks and 2 Cover tracks, a first for the Human. Keep checking the blog for further updates and information on the release of the new Human Project CD!

Final Stretch


Well, I am entering the final stretches of mixing. It's been a long journey.  Should finish that next week. Then it needs to get mastered. Bill Sayre at Fast Traxx will do it for me.  Then..It has to be sent off to disc makers to have the artwork and CD design done. And..CD's duplicated. This can take a month. So, I am going to guess mid to late March on this baby.  I think it will be worth the wait, I have worked hard on it and will not do anymore full blown CD's after this, only maybe singles that I will make available as downloads.  This will be my 5th CD.  Enough.  I have accumulated alot of really good fans and listeners and that has been a real reward for me.  

Here is a little video I did talking about mixing and you get a little listen to "The Red Rose." The sound is of course compromised through the reality bleepin rocks. copy and paste that link to your browser and go take a listen. I appreciate all of you. Keep it crankin.

Happy New Year


Happy New Year to Human Project friends and fans. Still working on the new CD. Mixing still. I forgot how tedious this can be, especially if you are a perfectionist like me.  I am also getting ready to get real busy with my real job that will slow me down.  I will get it done. I think It will be March now before it will be released. Thanks for your patience, I hope the CD will be worth the wait.

Hope you have a great 2014.  Take care of yourselves, you will be older before you know it and wish you would have.

Rock on!

King Cotton is now Available on Itunes, The Human's song about Cotton Ginning.

Go to Itunes and just search The Human Project.



Final Stretch, Mixing.


Have been mixing the new tracks now for a couple of weeks. Keep in mind, I don't go in everyday.  I have 3 songs left to mix, then mastering.  I am still trying to get disc out by end of January, but would not be suprised if it bleeds over into February.

I had AC Myles come into the studio yesterday the help out a little on one on my tracks. Now it's complete. While I had him in there, I did a little interview with him. You can check it out on Youtube.  Copy and paste the following link to see it.

Thanks to all of you for downloading my music and supporting the Human Project.  I go up against the big labels and people that have marketing muscle behind them.  I do this all myself to provide you with Human Project music. Much appreciated.

Mixing News


We have finished editing. This means getting all the unnecesary noise out of each track, bad notes..all that stuff. We are now into the mixing phase.  Balancing all the instruments. Getting them to sound good together. Getting the vocals and harmonies balanced. And most important, getting those drums to sound good.  I like a crackin snare and big kick Gettin it.  This is a long process to make all the songs sound good.  I am still shooting for a mid to late January release, but it could easily spill over into Feb.  I get busy with my real job too, making it harder to get into the studio.

Thanks for all Human Project fans for downloading my music.  I have well over 200 downloads the past couple of months. Awesome.  I think all Human Project fans will be happy with my new release. I don't have a huge following, but the ones I have are awesome.  Thanks for that.

If you are on facebook, stop by and like The Human Project there too, I put up more stuff there than here.


Rock on friends.


Layin down harmony vocals. Important part of Human Project songs.

Starting to Mix


Well..starting to mix new songs.  What a long journey huh?  Basically started in February.  This mixing process will take a couple of weeks. Once I send it off to be duplicated and packaged, that can take a month or so. Not in a real hurry, I will release it in January sometime. In the meantime, I am going to "officially" release a single called "King Cotton." It is a different song, a different genre, but my roots run deep in music that has a fiddle, and mandolin.  My grandpa was killer fiddle play and uncle both fiddle and mandolin. My dad...guitar.  My dad was a cotton gin engineer, so I was exposed to cotton and ginning of cotton all my life.  By the time he passed away in 2004, he was recognized as the modern day Eli Whitney.  So my song, "King Cotton," is about ginning cotton, from planting, to picking, to ginning to sending it to the mills and ultimately the consumer in the form of shirts and sheets. Finally, it is a tip of the hat to my dad.  This single will be released next week through digital distribution from cdbaby. I will inform you when it becomes available. In the meantime, I am going back to work today on finishing the rest of the tracks.

New Human Project Single


The Human just finished a new single called, "Lookin For My Freak Flag."  You can check it out on Human's bluesfest.

Still working on the new CD with early spring release date now.  


Looking For my Freak Flag...written by the Human

AC Myles lead guitar/Bill Sayre drums/Don Heflin Bass/Dave Wallace B3/The Human, rhythm guitar, all vocals.

More Studio


Went back to Cobalt Studio's here in Fresno, where I started on a few tracks in FEB.  Had not been back much, since I have been working at Fast Traxx.  We did some editing and mixing. Almost done with the tracks there, then will take them to fast traxx to finish with my other tracks.  No longer putting a time table on this release.  When it happens it happens, could most certainly be after the first of the year.  

Thanks for being a fan of The Human Project.

I really like this lean and mean version of The Human Project.  Dwayne on guitar. Check Hernandez on drums and John Dees on bass.  Tight.  Power packed.

Still workin on tracks for new CD.  Takin my time. 

The Human Project. Workin Too Hard.

Latest Recording News


I got some very important keyboard tracks put down yesterday.  One of my new songs, "Beyond Blue," really needed some help, and the killer Hammond track just took it over the top.  I brought in Dave Wallace, a killer Hammond player from right here in Fresno.  His pic is below.  And, for the first time, I am including a couple of cover tracks on this new CD. One is "Folsom Prison Blues," and the Hammond kicking in the back just brought that track right up to smokin as well.  There are also a couple of pics of me putting down harmony tracks on Folsom Prison Blues.  Progress is being made now.  I see release around Christmas, or right after the first of the year.  Its a pretty diverse group of songs, I hope you will enjoy it.

Dave Wallace on the Hammond. The Human putting down some background Vocals at Fast Traxx in Fresno, CA



I started mixing a song I basically had finished couple of months ago.  "Runnin Up the Freak Flag." Mixing is not easy, and is time consuming. Editing too. Anyway, I will at least have a single ready for you to hear to hold you over until I get the damn CD done.  After I get "Freak Flag," finished, will get back on some of the others. I still have to get keyboard player in on a couple too.  Then heavy editing and mixing starts. It's been a LONG time, thanks for your patience with this all you Human project fans.  Hope you are listening to the Bluesfest on Podomatic too.  Appreciate all of you.\


Studio News August


Gpt back into the studio finally, Brought in Dwayne Janzen, the original Human Project lead guitarist, and he put down lead to 4 tracks. I am getting closer on some of my songs. I still need some keyboards, and I have to finish up some harmonies and percussion, then....close. That said..I think it could still be close the Christmas before this thing all comes together. I may release a single before that to give you a flavor of what is going on.  However,this CD is pretty diverse with its music and flavors.



Late July Update


Very sorry for such a long period of time with no blog posts.  Obviously I have not been active in the studio. Several reasons for this. 1)  A couple of vacations and also trips related to work. 2)  Irresponsible muscians, that flake on me. 3) Irresponsible studio owners.  Irresponsible goes with the territory in the music business. That said, I am trying to get back in the studio next week and get some momentum back on the songs. I have 9.  I actually want to do 2 or 3 more, then toss out the weaker ones.  Thanks for stopping by and checking the blog.  Thanks also for your support of Human's Bluesfest on podomatic.

Putting Vocals Down


I started putting some permanent vocals down at Fast Traxx today.  I got 3 done. I also added some harmony tracks.  I still need lead guitar and keyboards added. I also have 2 songs at Cobalt here in Fresno that are almost complete. I have to go out of town on business week of 17th of June. Then when I return, I will get after it hard.  I may have to record one more of the cover tunes I am working on is not coming together. Most of the CD will be original Human project stuff.

Cobalt Studio update


I am working in Cobalt Studio in Fresno on 3 tracks...2 are Acoustic.  I brought in Eva Scow to play some fiddle on my track called King Cotton. It also has a mandolin on it.  That's it..sparse. Wrote the song about Cotton Ginning and ultimately, its a tribute to my dad.  I am including pic of big new board at Cobalt.  Mercy. I have to get back to Fast Traxx to finish up 6 tracks there.  If I can ever get this CD done, I think its gonna be a good one that my fans will enjoy.



new videos..short clips of studio process


I laid the bass tracks to 5 songs today. I have explained how I have "building" these tracks. The videos try to explain further how I do this.  Unfortunately, I can't get the entire video to load from my phone to You tube, or facebook.  I do have these partial videos on my Human Project facebook page.  If you have a facebook account you can click this link and go check em out. Like the Human Project while you are there.  I am working on being able to load entire videos to a You Tube Account.  These tracks are still raw....rough mix..with no lead guitar or keyboards yet.  Scratch vocals.  Remember,I am showing you how I build a track.


Here is the link:

you may have to copy and paste this to your browser.

I will post more pics from next session, I was absorbed with getting bass tracks put down today. PEACE.

May 15th Recent update


I am not back in the studio until May 21st. I will be putting down bass tracks to 5 songs at that time. I will try to get some video and pics and inform you how this session went. From there...I will bring lead guitar and keyboards in and then we will be getting closer and closer!  :)

Human in the studio. 2013. Workin on next project of new stuff.

May Studio Update


My last blog told you about laying rhythm guitar tracks to 5 songs. I used my strat and my hot rod deluxe amp to a click track or programmed drum machine to the proper beats per minute. Then, I put down scratch vocals for all 5 tracks. This got the tracks ready for drums to be added.  

My last session Monday May 6th, 2013 we got drums layed in. This is time consuming, because we had to mic em up. Look at the pic below.  Big kit and miked up for the big sound, especially on snare and kick. The overhead mics get great symbol sound and we put a ribbon mic in the middle of the room that adds cool effects.  Once this was done, we layed the tracks. Bill Sayre of Fast Traxx played drums for me. He has offered many times to do it, and I have always turned him down. This time when he offered, I accepted. I am glad I did. He is a very good drummer and his style fits my songs well. 

My next session will be May 21st, 2013.  I will put the bass tracks down on all 5 tracks.  I am gonna do it myself. I am not the best bass player, but on my songs I am a very good one. I know what I like.



Thanks for checking in. More updates after the May 21 session.

Studio Update


Pretty good progress today in studio. I put down my guitar tracks for 4 songs.  For this project, I am not bring a bull blown band into the studio.  I am playing to a click track, or in this case..Bill programmed a "temporary" drum machine with the correct beats per minute and played to that.  I used my Fender Hot Rod Delux amp and we miked it up.  I did 2 originals and 2 covers. The next step now is to put real drums on all the tracks.  Then, I will bring in my lead guitar player and a keyboard player to finish it up. Finally, I will put down the real vocals..not scratch..and harmonies and percussion. This is what gives my songs..."The Human Project" sound. Unique. I have 3 songs at another studio.  If all goes according to plan, I will have 9 songs.  Expensive and this might slow me down some.  If I get a full blown CD complete, It will be end of summer at best.  This will make it over 2 years since the last one..and man...I am 99% sure this will be my final one.



Studio Updates


Things are starting to become a little clearer as to what may happen with potential new CD.  I will only be working in 2 studios.  I am getting close to finishing 3 acoustic rock type tracks at Cobalt here in Fresno.  I have almost completed 2 at Fast Traxx.  I have decided to do 4 more tracks at Fast Traxx which would give me a total of 9 for a potential new CD.  There will be 2 cover songs..a first for me. Understand this will take time. I am in no hurry and also understand how expensive this is and I have no backing. I finance all of it.  So when I get it done, I hope you, my fans will help me spread the word on the new product.



More Studio Updates/Memphis


Just got back from Memphis. Was on business trip, but of course I work the music scene in down on beale st.

I got bogged down in the studio, what else is new as far as that goes?  The latest update now is I will work in 3 different studio's on different tracks and pull them all together into one studio later.  Crazy, but lets just see what happens.  I may do a few covers of some of my favorite songs that I play well live, as well as several more Human Originals. Will keep you posted.

Human Project Updates


The Human has been sidelined with the flu and other assorted health issues. This has knocked him out of the studio for awhile. He is planning on getting back in sometime soon.  He has written a few new tracks and would like to get them recorded and see where that leads.  He has NOT released any new songs in close to 2 years. So this should be an exciting time for Human Project fans.

He is still hosting his popular podcast, "Human's Bluesfest," on podomatic.  If you haven't checked it out, I encourage you to do so.

Sign the guestbook!

PS  His popular CD, "The Real Stuff," has been discounted in the CDBaby store.  Go to homepage here and click on the Real Stuff link!
