Summer 2018 Lots of Musical goings on going on.

The Bottle Rockets next record titled “Bit Logic” has been recorded (in St. Louis), mixed (in Brooklyn) and mastered (in Nashville) and is slated for an October release on Bloodshot Records from Chicago.  This is the 7th record I’ve produced for the band and I’m super excited for you to be able to hear it soon.  Go to their site for pre-order info.

In 2014 I got to meet Sarah Borges through the guys from Girls, Guns & Glory.  I produced her EP “Good & Dirty” which was released in 2016 and since then we have played a lot of shows together.  Me playing her songs and Sarah backing me on mine.  We’ve got 10 tracks for her upcoming album “Love’s Middle Name” completed and we’ll start mixing soon.  This record is to be released in October too. Go here to pre-order Sarah’s new record.

Spanking Charlene’s next record titled “Find Me Out” is also in the works in Brooklyn at Cowboy Technical Services.  We’ve got all the songs recorded and are one day of overdubs away from mixing on that one too.  It’s a barnburner for sure.  Fans of Spanking Charlene and their alter ego the Sad Bastards of Brooklyn are gonna like it.

Also working on records with Girls On Grass, Nate Schweber, HEAP and Mary Lee Kortes.

I’ll also be mixing Devil Dog Road‘s upcoming record.  The new Squirrel Nut Zippers record “Beasts of Burgundy” that Mario Viele and I mixed at Cowboy Technical has been on the iTunes Jazz chart!

My band will play 2 special gigs July 12 & 13 supporting the great Drivin’ N’ Cryin’ at Hill Country in DC and Manhattan.

Keep an eye on the gigs pages as I play monthly with the Mark McKay Band and Spanking Charlene.

More gigs with Sarah Borges coming up this fall and if you don’t have it already check out the Roscoe Sampler on the Store page.

Thanks for a terrific 2014

Hello Friends and music fans.  It’s been a while since I posted over here but it’s not for lack of music making.

2014 brought a bunch of records that I was lucky to produce including “Good Luck” by Girls, Guns & Glory, “Fall On In” by Maynard & The Musties, “Hipster Retirement Home” by Los Dudes and “Volume One” by the brilliant Sad Bastards of Brooklyn.  Also mixed “The Last Days of Winter” by George Usher and Lisa Burns and the audio for the upcoming Bottle Rockets live DVD release.

I’ve got new recordings underway with a bunch of great artists including Esquela, the Surreal McCoys, The Jack Grace Band, Jollett, Planetary Nights, HEAP, Girls, Guns & Glory and The Bottle Rockets studio followup to 2009’s “Lean Forward”.

2014 has seen a lot guitar sessions too including tracks for The Gang produced by Jono Manson, the single for DL Marble’s upcoming release “Drag Me Back” and Jimbo Mathus‘ latest “Dark Night of The Soul”.

I had much fun performing with Spanking Charlene, Los Dudes, Mark McKay and Jimbo Mathus & The Tri-State Coalition this year.

2015 is going to bring more great new music from the Del-Lords and also the first new Eric Ambel release since 2004’s Knucklehead to be produced by the very awesome Jimbo Mathus.

The hardest part of all this year was loosing my mentor, friend, life coach and guru the incomparable Louis B. Whitney.  I’ve never known a more giving person. Lou carried a spark that could never be extinguished.  Lou will be missed every day as I work the path that I learned from him and with those thoughts I think of all the other lives he touched and his lovely wife and Honey Bunny Kay Tolliver Whitney.  RIP Lou.
