People

Here are some nice folks that I've collaborated with and/or have gained insight from regarding music production.

Frank Basile
Frank is a fine session drum. I've had Frank work on one of my earlier projects and was very happy with his work.

Toby Bresnahan - Grand Rapids, MI
Toby is an accomplished musician and signer songwriter. Toby helped my out by doing the vocals on a recent tune; I really liked how it came out, so I think we'll be doing some more.

Steve Demetrician - Kendall Park, NJ
Steve is the owner of DAWPRO Studios. Steve and I have worked on a number of tracks together. He's a great player with a great kit and all around nice guy to boot. Visit his site and get him on one of your tracks.

Michael Fogarty - Japan

Jeff Markham - San Jose, CA
Jeff heads up On the Mark Music. Jeff plays keyboards and writes some great material, in addition to being a thoughtful and generous individual. His "5:30" track inspired the contributors to start refering to their lineup as the "530 band." Jeff is also a fellow technology geek and one of the few of these fine people I've actually met in person.

Mark is an guitarist extrodinare. It's always a pleasure to be playing on a track with Mark. A recent tune of Mark's, Espressivo, is probably the best tune I've worked on. I'd like send a special thanks out to Mark as I've used his web site as a starting point for the design of this one.
