Time To Chill - February 21, 2017

I just released my latest CD, it's called "Time To Chill". I've taken some of my favorite melodies and set them to reggae, surf and latin rhythms. It starts with Carol Kings classic "It's Too Late" set to a cool beat. I play the melody on hammond organ and a nice cello solo in the middle. Other songs include "Misirlou", "Black Orpheus" and Disney's "Color Of The Wind" from Pocahontas. You can order on Peace, Dana

The Victor - April 10, 2013

Hey! I know it's been awhile. But I haven't been lazy, just too busy to sit down and enter stuff. However, I am excited about my new single "The Victor". It's a re-working of a Dick Dale classic. If you don't know Dick Dale, he is known as the "King of Surf Guitar". As a native of Southern California, this music was always part of our lifestyle. It is truly born from the beaches that inspired Dick and future generations like myself. I added my own arrangements along with help my friend and drummer Brian Biddulph (who by the way kicks butt on this song) to give a more contemporary feel. It's raw! It's in your face! and I hope you like it. Sample it here and download on or ITunes. Peace

new players - September 27, 2008

It's been a while since I updated the website. I have been very busy. I have the the pleasure of playing guitar for Shawnlareee Williams. She is a very deep R&B, blues and jazz vocalist. She commits her all to every song.
Through this gig I met a very tasty sax player named Tony B. We've been working as a jazz trio with Leo Valensuela on bass. It's a great format for me to work out my chord melody ideas and really focus on providing a solid background for Tony to do his thang.
We are working on a demo and I will post some samples sounds for your listening. Peace and tell what you think. Dana
