SMASHING PUMPKINS

Smashing Pumpkins hired me to be vocal contractor.  We sang "Knights of Malta" on the "Shiny and Oh So Bright" LP.  That night, Billy said this about us on instagram. In other ‘news’, recording is now finished for the upcoming ‘Shiny and Oh So Bright’ EP’s 1 + 2, which ended last night with a truly epic sing on “Knights of Malta” with 3 unbelievably talented women.  Probably one of my favorite experiences ever recording with @smashingpumpkins.  

 

MIKEY MIKE
I brought in CAPTIVATE KIDS CHOIR to sing on Mikey Mike's single, "Doin Me."  The kids sang as I directed them in front of Rick Rubin, it was a magical session.  In March the single was released as well as Mikey's genius marketing campaign everyone has seen.  (Please note, all the parents signed off on the cursing!) Click here to see Mikey's pic and hear the song.  www.findmikeymike.com  Click here to hear it in this Canon Camera spot!
