Welcome to my website one and all!! As we all prepare for the upcoming holiday seasons I am reminded of the value and importance of family. I recently spent some time back in Toronto and found myself enjoying the city very much but, I couldn't help notice how much it has changed. Not just the shear number of people, but the landscape is so different from when we grew up. In our youth my friends and I virtually lived downtown on Yonge St. and we had what seemed like an endless supply of rock bands and rock clubs to check out. Toronto in the 70's was truly a musical, rockin' town!
Rock Candy, a respected label in the UK, is about to re-release Zon's 2nd album "Back Down To Earth". I did an interview this morning with the editor of Rock Candy magazine and I found myself looking back at that album with a little bit of "seasoned" perspective with regards to that project. Zon had enjoyed good success with the 1st album and I was looking forward to recording a 2nd LP. Truth be told, things were not all "warm and fuzzy" with the recording of that project. For one thing we had TWO producers, Dale Jacobs and Don Lorusso. This has its own built in difficulties and I believe the final product was not the record we were capable of making.
Rock Candy also has re-released Zon's first album, "Astral Projector". This remastered version includes 4 bonus tracks!! One of which, "The Battle", is a composition of mine that was a staple in the live show but never released on an album. Here is the link to Rock Candy's website : https://www.rockcandyrecords.com/Zon. Check out Brian's guitar solo on the full version of Hollywood! I sure wish that had been the version on the first album.
Don't forget, the ZON Live! CD is available on this website!!
Aldenfield is a progressive rock band that I put together in 2017 with three amazing musical friends of mine. (Jim Morris, Mark Prator and Ruben Drake). This is a project I am particularly proud of. Samples available on the Aldenfield page. The CD is available in the store for download and hard copy. I believe this is the best album I have ever done.
Another CD I have available is The Quietest Moments. This is a collection of piano based pieces some of which have kind of a world music flavor. It's good music for relaxing, meditating or just chillin' round the house.
I have decided to make available for download, several of my meditation/relaxation pieces that I wrote and produced for Tranceland Productions in Florida. This is a company owned by my friend, Elvis Lester. Elvis is a successful therapist who uses NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and Hypnosis as well as Neurocise- how you run your brain and how it directs your behavior. I have produced several CD's that Elvis uses as his "meditation" music while he is counseling and hypnotizing clients. Some of these pieces are 30 min. in length so I have posted a price of $5 each for each of the tracks. I hope that any of these pieces will help you in your day to day "chillin' out" time. We all need to spend some time each day in restful meditation.
That's all for now, please be safe and take care of each other.
