The Story of The Creepers, A Halloween Horror Tale. 

I wrote The Creepers in 2008, and it's on Human Project II, Humanized. It's about what goes on the dark alley's of the inner cities at midnight of Halloween Eve.  Basically, The Creepers come out.  They come out in ever more force if it happens to be a full moon.  While I wrote this song, Dana Long of Visalia, CA who I co-producted the CD with, contributed heavily with is brilliant guitar work.  The song is almost 7 minutes long, which is really too long for many to stay with it.  But I consider to be one of my best tracks ever. It was mastered at Sterling Sound by Steve Fallone, who has really gone big time since he mastered my stuff. Below is a link to a little promo I did that is around  2 minutes long. You should be able to at least get the flavor of the track. The full version is on all major music sites if you would like to download it.

The Story of Spider and The Fly  

Sometimes a song will pop into my head and I will go into my little studio and mess around with it some. More often than not, nothing will come from this and I just move on from it. If it starts to feel good, and I think I might be onto to something, I will turn on my Boss BR 1600 Recorder and lay down an acoustic rhythm track to see how that feels.  If I get that dialed in, and it still feels good, I will add a scratch vocal and  continue to build the song track by track.  Even with this, there are no guarantees and I have often abandoned songs even at this stage.  But sometimes, magic does occur as was the case with this Rolling Stones Song, "The Spider and the Fly."  Once I got this track finished, I sent it to my friend AC Myles to put down a lead track. (I left room for this). He also added some rhythm stabs as well.  He knocked this out of the park, so now I have what I consider to be an really good version of Spider and the Fly.  It has not been released yet, but I probably will release it after the first of the year with 3 or 4 other songs.  The link to the promo of this song is below.  

What did I use on this song?

Yamaha F450 Acoustic guitar. Fender Strat. Epiphone Bass. Alesis SR 16 drum machine. (kick only) Bongo's or conga's. Shakers. And, I did the vocals using a AKG P220 Condenser Mic.

I have no agent or representative for my music. No marketing firm.  I do not perform live to further promote my music. Over time, people have found it and continue to do so month after month. I may get out a little more music, but I am coming to the end of the line with all this.  I am grateful for all your support.
