Indie film placement

Vinyl Station, a local acoustic duo here in Phoenix just got some tunes placed in an upcoming indie film called Ashes of Eden. Michael produced the cuts written by Matthew Thornton at The Music Lab in Scottsdale. We're pretty excited about this great news. 

Wild West Alaska

In association with composer Richard Fiocca we co composed and produced this theme for the Wild West Alaska show on  the Animal Planet network....... On banjo is Phoenix's own Tyler James and on fiddle is Trey Keller from Nashville.

Dawn Jameson

I heard Dawn sing for the first time at Mastros steakhouse up in North Scottsdale and was blown away..... great singer, great entertainer, and a great songwriter. We did this at The Music Lab a few months back. Adam Armijo on guitars. For more info about Dawn, check out her website...... www.summerdawnmusic.com

Vinyl Station

The core of Vinyl Station is Matthew Thornton and Brendon Cottrell, a guitar based duo out of Phoenix,AZ. We produced this record over the span of about a year and a half due to the band's extremely busy schedule. The tunes are infectious as is Matthew's vocal delivery, and Brendon's harmony fills out the vocal mix...... with the help of Michael's keyboards, the other musicians include Scott Kusmirek and Jim Atkins on drums, Tyler James on Banjo, and Roger Singleton on guitar. The new CD is available on itunes........ download a copy..... a very cool record.

String arrangements for Tora Fisher CD

Michael had the pleasure of doing string arrangements for Tora Fisher's new CD. Featured here is a cut entitled "Better Without Me".
The CD is produced by Michael Mugrage and Tora with Seth Glassman on bass, Frank Vilardi on drums and Michael Mugrage on guitars.
Stay tuned for more of this great artist.

Eddie Elliott

Eddie Elliott's CD is done and out on the market. Eddie is a voice to be reckoned with........ no question. This CD covers the complete spectrum of Eddie's "from the heart" writing style from haunting ballads about a night in "Key West" to a rousing anthem about the year to come in "This is our Year". His intimate style and voice captures you from the opening lines of  "House".

North Woods Law theme

In association with composer Richard Fiocca, we co composed and produced this theme for the show North Woods Law on the Animal Planet network.......... Featuring on harmonica is Phoenix's native son and singer/songwriter, Brian Demarco

The Boys in the Hall

This is something Michael composed for  Richard Fiocca. It was recorded in Prague and conducted by Richard with the real deal.......... no samples here. It's for a show on FoxSports called "The Boys in the Hall", a baseball show about hall  of famers........ baseball and symphonic music...... puts a lump in your throat everytime.

Artist of the heart: Frannie Faith

This record was a tough one to catagorize. It has all the hooks of a great pop record but the spiritual message of a meditation type record. Frannie Faith really broke the mold here and it was a real pleasure to track and mix it. Produced by Frannie and her husband Jeff Southworth of Hall and Oates fame, Michael mixed it with Jeff and Frannie back in early 2010. To hear more about the record and of course purchase it, go to Frannie's website  www.franniefaith.com. Included here is a clip from the song "Inner Sound"
