I’ve been working on several projects recently. Among the most fun, always, is reconnecting with my friends in Tokyo. A few weeks ago we recorded updates for Disney Natsu Matsuri 2013. The song I wrote is called ‘Burn It Up, Donald Duck.’ Last year I was wrote the song for Donald as well. This year they decided to give him so new dance moves. Check […]
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
In review – 2012 was a crazy year. So many fun projects and a pile of shows for Seabourn and Holland America. In mid December, I visited the Seabourn Quest for almost a week. The shows are looking great. The cast is a talented group led by the lovely Loula Geater and the tech staff on board is top notch. I am grateful […]
Wow – time flies. We recorded the TDL Halloween Parade in the middle of July and I’m just having a moment to post. It was a fun few days with my friends from Tokyo and Florida. The parade features a couple new songs. The show mode song I wrote and the parade song was written by my good friend Justin Avery.
As usual, it was a […]
My recent trip to Europe was centered around production meetings for a new set of shows for the Seabourn Quest. After a whirlwind trip to Paris and a Eurostar ride to London (with a little shopping and Indian food!) we headed to Northampton about an hour and a half north of London to meet with Belinda King and her production team. […]
My visit to Paris was brief but great! After a morning of running around shopping for gifts and trying to get in as much Paris as possible in 6 hours (hahaha!) I headed out to Disneyland Paris. After all of these years and all of the shows I’ve been able to write and/or arrange for the Disney parks, I finally got to experience some of […]
It has been a busy couple weeks of recording for the Nastu Matsuri summer show at Tokyo Disneyland. I was lucky to write one song and do arrangements for a few of them. This was an usual project in that there were may composers involved. It was so much fun to see […]
It’s a big day in Mexico! Well, for me anyway. Alexander Acha, Marconi and Guadalupe Pineda are all finally on the market. Hopefully, someone will buy a copy or two! Hey, maybe even start a “Gringo Boy Production” collection – lol. Really, who would have thought that a gringo boy from Seattle would get to work with all of this great Latin talent?! I hope […]
Me and the Marconi boys. Diego, Sergio, Emiliano and Alex
This coming Tuesday June 21, Marconi’s debut album is released. Their single “Desesperadamente Enamorado” is climbing slowly up the radio charts. Last I heard is was 29. Pretty great for a new group. They’ve been out doing TV and press to promote […]
During the recording of Alexander’s record his father, Emmanuel, the Latin superstar, came by for a visit. We had a great day listening through much of the record and sharing stories. Yoel Enriquez also joined us for part of the day. Yoel co-wrote a few of the songs on the record […]
I was fortunate to be invited along with my good friend, Cristina Abaroa, to the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles to see Guadalupe perform with a Mariachi band as part of the Mexican Bi-centenial celebration. She had been the headliner at the […]
