04-25-05: The Hybrid Has Landed
Back in 1991, Roy Gray, Anthony
Beck and I recorded a 5 song EP. The music was fast, angry, and strange.
We called ourselves Hybrid, because
we brought such varied sounds to the music. We played the Seattle club circuit
with these songs, entertaining some and annoying others.
The Hybrid EP also won me a
writeup in Guitar For the Practicing Musician.
I've had the 24-track 2"
reel sitting around, and have always wanted to remix it. This year, I decided
it was time. So, here are 30-second excerpts from the songs. If you enjoy
them, please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If Roy and Anthony are agreeable, maybe we'll re-release it!

08-13-05: JRS guest solo on Scott Hughes' new album
recently contributed a guest solo on Scott Hughes' new album, The
In-Between Phase. Scott is an extraordinarily talented musician. I love
his new album, and am honored to be on it. You'll also find a guest solo
from guitar wizard Derryl
Gabel. Derryl and I can be found on the track "Fi-lo". In
addition to Scott's excellent original compositions, be sure to check out
his smokin' version of Edgar Winter's "Frankenstein", and his
humorous and quirky interpretation of Thelonious Monk's "Blue Monk".
In-Between Phase is a must-listen album. Go have a listen!
If you're into Star Wars, check
this little lightsaber
duel test clip. Jeremy Colyer and a friend are doing the fighting. I
did the sound Visit XTreme
Design Fx to see some of Jeremy's costume and mask design work.
