The Atlanticean, now available

Saturday, June 30th, 2012

As a voice teacher, I coach people through recording sessions and vocal issues all the time. Teaching is extremely important to me, as it’s an integral part of what I believe makes me a great performer. It is with that thought, that I am pleased to announce the release of my latest album, The Atlanticean. Written and arranged by me, recorded over the course of about 8 months. I hope you’ll check it out and enjoy.

Erston Pearcy (with Jeff Rolka on piano)

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Erston is a friend and client of mine, whom I’ve worked with for nearly a decade. I produced his EP, Erston Pearcy and have the pleasure of accompanying him when he plays in San Francisco. I think this live performance of his is noteworthy for its confidence, solid playing and singing, and also for his intro to the tune. He’s concise but descriptive, and manages to get a chuckle out of the audience.
