I am letting you know about a new musical project I am working on. Please check
out the Italian Project video and the links to many of the artists involved. If it
does well I do well!
Consider joining Lisa Bell in this endeavor and become a part of our
Italian musical project. I am writing and playing guitar with Lisa as well
as mixing all of the music here at OilPan Studios. Here is a bit of the
It turns out that the Italian drummer I performed with last summer and that
we are working with now, Cesare Valbusa is also John Jorgensons (Hellecasters , Desert Rose Band) drummer when he plays Italy. Recently I was able to tell John about this connection while hanging out at "Guitar Town" which is 3 days of fantastic guitar performsnce at Copper Mountain.
We also have Mario Pagliarulo on bass who tours with Trevor Hall and recently played with System of Down artist Serj Tankian on the Jimmy Kimmel show. Lisa will also have Emmy winner, Mark Oblinger record her vocals at his studio in Boulder. Somewhere in this time frame
she is flying to Italy to have her friend Lisa Simmons of Hippie Tendencies add her parts. Upon her return it will be up to me to blend all of the tracks into a killer sound experience. Whew!
It is a great pleasure to be working with these individuals and your help
will facilitate this taking place so please sign up early and often. Please
pass this on to any and all fans of great music!
Lisa Bell's new CD project is in full swing with Cesare Valbusa sending drum tracks from his studio in Valpolicella wine country in Italy. That's Mario Pagliarulo on bass, yours truly on guitar and Chris Sheldon of Great American Taxi at a recent pre-production session. Chris brought his banjo drum kit that has more accessories than a Swiss army knife! Very cool.
I am excited to be mixing, playing guitar on this project and working with Mario who is producing and playing bass. His most recent gig was playing Jimmy Kimmel Live with System of Down member Serj Tankian.
This following our trip to Italy in 2011 to play with Hippie Tendencies which inspired this music project. Stay tuned!
Most happy with a guitar around my neck though it is starting to weigh me down!
