Peter Lamb & the Wolves w/special guests Maceo Parker, Stephen Riley, Dave Wright, Django Haskins, Bullfrog Willard McGhee and Sidecar Social Club  

— Carolina Tiger Milk —   

 This is the third album from this Raleigh based jazz quartet - this time featuring an all-star lineup of guest artists including the world famous alto-sax player Maceo Parker (former saxiphonist for James Brown), the gorgeous tenor sax of Stephen Riley (from Branford Marsalis’s band), trombone ace Dave Wright (Countdown Quartet, Boneslinger, Second Line Stompers), guitarist/vocalist Django Haskins (The Old Ceremony), blues guitarist/singer Bullfrog Willard McGhee and local swing quartet Sidecar Social Club.  I produced and engineered this collaboration, which was recorded almost entirely live and mixed all-analog (as usual) to 1/4” tape.

(R-to-L): Peter Lamb, Stephen Riley, Maceo Parker, Rodney Marsh, Al Strong, Paul Rogers

MIPSO — North Carolina’s Renegade String Band   

Known for their blend of string band music, close harmony singing and a variety of modern influences, this quartet, started in Chapel Hill, NC, has had several of their records debuting in the Top-Ten of the Bluegrass charts.  Always on the move and growing, they spent time with me recording two songs live and simultaneously shooting footage for new videos — all happening in Saxhapaw, NC at the wonderful Haw River Ballroom, which we had taken over for a couple of days.  Click below to see/hear videos:

Jon Shain & Joe Newberry — Crow the Dawn   

A new collaboration between these two great N.C. instrumentalists and songwriters that I produced and engineered, blending Jon’s fingerpicked blues styles with Joe’s old-time banjo and guitar playing.  Fourteen great original songs with piano & vocal harmonies from original Red Clay Rambler, Mike Craver, dobro from John Currie, piano from Mark Wells, trumpet from Paul Rogers, drums from Ed Butler, harp from Bill Newton, accordion from Greg Bell and backing vocals from The Mighty Gospel Inspirations.
