Just something I've been working on for an audio production course. Very early Stan, and as far as I know the only track to feature a banjo. It's the story of a tragic shipwreck that also says 'tis an ill wind as blow no one any good!

Another "new old sea song" that just hit me out of nowhere as I was busily engaged in something else. Here's an echo of an older time - no fancy instrumentation, no fancy studio tricks, no autotune. Just an old banjo and voices. I tried more instrument…read more

You have always had a clean production style. This is professional. Is that the audio production course, or just natural ability?

@valsvil - Just me. No, I lied. There was also a bottle of rum involved.

Is this all you? In any case impressive vocals!

I had another version of this Stan Rogers tune up here before. But I recently decided to invest in some nice plugins for my recording setup (IZotope). I used this tune as a learning project and it came out so much better than what I had before…read more

Cool music

I am an American of Hispanic descent living in Russia playing and writing music that often involves the banjo, an instrument of African origin.

It doesn’t get much weirder than that, folks!

Styles include Americana, folk, and bluegrass, with influences from lots of things. And there’s often a banjo in there somewhere, though not necessarily yer grandad’s hillbilly sort of banjo.

Lately my focus has been on creating original maritime folk music after the style of traditional songs, but with my own variety of salt added.
