For Veteran's Day, I wrote a song called "Ode to Nam," and made a YouTube Video to go with it. It gives a short history of this war and shows the difficulties our troops faced trying to fight this war. When they came home, they were not very welcome because, "they didn't win." This was shameful. This was the politicians fault completely.
Thanks to all our brave veterans who have fought to keep us free. Below is the link to: "Ode to Nam."
God Bless These Vets.
I finally got my new song, "Raisin Cane," finished. It kept evolving the longer I worked on it. I reached points where I was not satisfied with it, but plowed through it and ultimately got it. I play all the instruments on this and I used a Alesis SR-16 drum machine to manually lay in the drums. And..it sounds pretty hot if I do say so. My friend, AC Myles lays an absolutely scorching lead guitar track. Mercy. This track has not been released, I need to decide what I want to do with it. Either release it as a single or wait and put it out on another CD down the road. Anyway, I did a little YouTube video to go with it and the link is below. Enjoy and play it loud.

This is why I say Human Project Music is International.
Thanks to all of you that support Human Project Music. No label. No management. No PR firm. Just me and my music...and you. Good enough huh?
My first two CD's, The Real Stuff 2006, and Human Project II, Humanized 2008 were full of all original songs that I wrote. The first one, The Real Stuff hit big in Europe. The second one, Human Project II, Humanized got absolutely killer reviews. Because of these 2 releases, I was nominated by an artist in Louisiana. This was submitted to the Board of this organization and approved. I was admitted in 2010. It is rare that you see artists that only do cover songs get in. I was honored by this award even though few in my area were even aware of it. I have continued to write and record with a big portion of all my releases being original music.
Tools of my trade.
Thanks for all over your support.
Halloween is just around the corner now. Please watch out for The Creepers. They dwell in the inner cities and like to come out in the dark alley's especially on Halloween eve. If there is a full moon, they will come out in larger numbers and be even more ominous. Here is the link to a video that will give you fair warning.
Happy Halloween to all of you.
Be safe and enjoy.
This is simply a working copy of my new song, "Raisin Cane." There is no lead guitar, which be added later by AC Myles. In the Video I am giving you the link to, I explain how I recorded the track and how I used a Alesis SR-16 Drum machine to get the drum track in. The song itself is a typical Human Rocker. You will dig it when its completed.
