Adam Schlesinger Tribute Compilation

It was a privilege to work on this rendition of “Stacy’s Mom” and to have known Adam Schlesinger. I can’t think of a better way to honor his memory than through song.

CA Milk Board “Know The Facts”

Just released today. I recorded a bunch of the music, added SFX/Foley and did a lot of editing! It’s a funny little cartoon. We mixed it at Lime Studios in Santa Monica.

Crazy Ex Girlfriend wins an Emmy!

Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics! This song was a real blast to be a part of. I remember last-minute edits the day before the shoot and hustling to get it all done in time. I had a good feeling about it when Rachel came in the studio and put down an acapella guide vocal. Congrats to Rachel Bloom, Adam Schlesinger, and Jack Dolgen!

Starting Crazy Ex Season 4!

This will be the final season. So far, the music department is off to a great start and I can’t wait for people to hear these songs.

It’s a wrap for Crazy Ex Girlfriend Season 3!

We just finished mixing Episode 13. This was a blast. The songs, the orchestrations, the actors/singers. It gets better each season. Fingers crossed for season 4!

Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real’s New LP

Here’s an album that’s been a long time in the making and I can’t wait for people to hear it. Recorded and mixed by John Alagia and yours truly.

The 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards opening number recorded and mixed by yours truly

Check it out. Putting this together required the first all-nighter I’ve pulled in a while! But it was worth it. I learned a lot about live broadcast and making things work on a stage in front of 6,000+ people (with fire, flying chandeliers and a singing human teapot). We had a little more than three days to arrange, record, edit, mix, assemble and prep for playback but we pulled it off!

Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real!

I’ve been holed up over at The Village in Santa Monica with Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real, with John Alagia producing. Good new stuff coming soon!

Crazy Ex Season Two

I’ve been working on the music for this new season of Crazy Ex Girlfriend with Adam Schlesinger and Steven Gold and it’s been a blast. Spent today in the studio with Tovah Feldshuh and I can’t wait to see it air.

Rachel Yamagata new record coming out September 23rd

Rachel Yamagata’s new album “Tightrope Walker” will be out in a few weeks and is available for pre-order now. It’s been a long time in the making, but totally worth the wait. Check out the music video for “Nobody”.

It was an honor to be part of the making of the album (I recorded and mixed a few gems on it!)
