The new Gardens of Tone album is out!
Reflective wistful downtempo rock fusion; laced with dreamy synths, jazz-influenced keyboards, and ethereal vocals; all overlaid onto deliberately strong but offbeat bass & drum rhythm signatures. They feel like little journeys.
The “Gardens of Tone” album was written and recorded in the small town of Bilpin, New South Wales, Australia. Bilpin is situated in the Greater Blue Mountains UNESCO World Heritage Area, an amazing landscape of unique flora, fauna, and land formations. All songs on this album are inspired by and, in some cases, directly about this dramatic landscape and the people I met there.
Written & Recorded in Bilpin, Australia
Mastered & Produced in Seattle, USA
Special Thanks: I am very grateful to the Bilpin international ground for Creative initiatives (BigCi) for hosting me in Australia and providing studio space, support, and fellowship on this inspirational and fulfilling artist residency.

Whisper that I need you
Breath in all your threat
Skirting all your hurdles
Sidestep all the tales
Bypass all the peril and dread
Yes, I still need you
And, yes, I always will
Sweet demur deferral
Dropping all the pretense
Dropping off the edge into thrill
– from “Dropping Off The Edge”
