Recording with composer Daniel Walker, conductor Ashley Irwin, and engineer Peter Kelsey at Capitol Recording Studio

We just completed a wonderful orchestral session at one of my favorite studios, Studio A in the Capitol Records building in Hollywood. Composer Dan Walker and I recorded the guitar tracks at Ollie Llama Studio, my personal studio. I was invited to the string session and did not want to miss the opportunity to hear live strings being recorded in one of the best sounding studios in the world. Dan wrote some beautiful music and the session was a success!

Dirty Sexy Money on ABC

It's always something different, and I guess that's part of what keeps living the life of an Artist so interesting. I was asked to perform on camera for the new season of ABC's "Dirty Sexy Money"  as a band member at a black tie affair.  The party scene was taped on a 120 foot yacht in a beautiful marina in South Long Beach. Since it was shot on location, we filmed for two nights until the sun came up... I'm still tired!
