Track 7 of 13. Beat out dozens of tracks from three agencies. 7 spots, domestic and international. Vocals from Kitty.



Some voyages never end, but, with much experience, skill and brutality, this ship was brought to harbor, laden with Spanish silver and gold. Looted in the name of the King. Dozens of settlements sacked and seventy galleons lay battered and broken on the sea floor. Protecting the Americas is lucrative business. To the victor go the spoils. My trial, merely a final call to end privateering was a farce, designed to appease the Spanish. I will see out my days as Governor of Jamaica. Who am I?



Old Navy Spot

This beat out 37 tracks. Me n Rei doodling in the studio. Those drums are one mic, loads of distortion and one take. And Rei is a first class bass player.

Another Aveeno

For summer 2016. After much deliberation, a cover of last years track.

“The Sound of Tubes” nearly made it, and probably didn’t because I strove hard to maintain the integrity of the sound of the pre amp I used to record it. A reel to reel recorder from 1956. Yeh, not a great idea to get something past corporate, but hey, the pre amp just sounds too good. And Old Man Winter, my upright piano, sounds like a champ, too.

Check The (Fuckin) Flow – Drive, She Said

This also just found a home in Drive, She Said. My friend Alicia Angeles on the vocal mic. I did offer to do a ‘clean’ version of this, and also to give it a clean title, because, after all it is an Ashley Tisdale movie. I’ve written music for her before and she’s covered a couple of my tracks, and her fanbase are all minors. No dice, though. Well, maybe they’re going to use a bit of the track that has no cussing. If they can find two seconds that has no cussing in it, that is. Still, nice placement. Thanks Andy.

Bong – Drive, She Said (2015)

One of my madder tracks and has two spots for a total of about 3 minutes in Drive, She Said (2015), which is also the title of a movie from 1997, so I guess they might change the name.




This just got another media buy.

I will never do another WFH (work for hire/buy out) on a commercial again. Or anything else for that matter. (Negotiable). This company has made full use of that wfh contract by running this consistently for FIVE years!  In my spare time I play the stock market and I know how much these pharmas make. Shame on them. But, thanks for the AFM. And at least the music house couldn’t take half the publishing.
