Recorded live at Maxwell’s in Hoboken, NJ earlier this year… check out two live tracks from Christina Alessi & the Toll Collectors. There’s an original called “Leave the Light On” and a cover of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene.” Enjoy!
Banding Together 2015 features eight songs (seven original and one in the public domain) performed live. I recorded it for blowupradio.com’s Banding Together Webathon which aired last month. Today, i’m making it available as a digital album that you can stream, download, and own. I recorded it in my apartment with studio-quality microphones and then worked with Missile Silo Studios to mix and master it. I think it came out sounding pretty great. I hope you agree!

Today, I’m releasing a new record into the world! It’s a recording of my recent performance on Banding Together: A Webathon to Benefit the Spondylitis Association of America.
About the Record
Things you won’t find on the record:
Things you will find on the record:
original songs recorded in their purest, simplest form
The recording features a half hour of original music, recorded in a way that captures the live performance with high fidelity. I worked with Missile Silo Studios to mix and master it professionally, so it sounds good coming out of your sound docks, speakers, and earbuds. (Read more about the recording process here.)
Banding Together 2013 features 30 minutes of original music recorded absolutely live. No auto-tune. No overdubs. No editing. Just my voice, acoustic guitar, and whatever other sounds occured during the performance. The album features eight original songs in their simplist form.
This recording originally aired as part of the Banding Together Webathon Concert to benefit the Spondylitis Association of America on blowupradio.com.

If you donate during the benefit weekend, you will receive a free digital compilation album. The album features exclusive tracks from the artists performing. I donated the first song in my set to this compilation.
My set features 30-minutes of original songs. Just me and an acoustic guitar. It’s not too often that I perform as a solo acoustic artist, so I hope you are able to listen at blowupradio.com.
PS – I released last year’s Banding Together performance as a digital album. You can stream it, download it, and pay what you want for it right here.
You can now stream the Guitar Pull featuring J Orellana, Keith Beck, and yours truly on blowupradio.com. In case you missed it when it aired back in March, you can stream it on demand. After clicking the link, look for the air date March 17th, 2013.
Totally unfiltered and completely laid back, you can listen to the three of us play original songs and talk about everything from the songwriting process to Wonder Woman. Enjoy.
I composed and recorded an instrumental piece for two pianos, synthesizer, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, and drum set. The odd part? I composed and recorded the entire piece on my iPad using virtual instruments in the GarageBand app. It’s called “You Smiled Because You Knew.”
Feel free to share it and comment below. Hope you enjoy it!
