Sunday Morning

The new Jamie McLean Band EP “Sunday Morning” is now available! We had a blast making it. I played some different sounding percussion on this record. More shakers, metal crashing things, an empty key of beer, etc to help get some different “junk yard” sounds. John Popper from Blues Traveler plays on one of the tracks. Pick it up!

Fun Shows!

I got to play a set with The Gregory Brothers yesterday. For those who dont know, they are internet celebs who are well known for their “Auto-Tune the News” videos on Youtube. Amazing talent in that band! Such creative people! I got to control all the video and backing tracks with Ableton live and the Novation Launchpad. Pretty fun! Check out the Gregory Brothers here:

I also got to play twice with Aaron Lee Tasjan, who has been cranking out some GREAT new songs. We played at Brooklyn Bowl and Rockwood Music Hall. The band also featured the great Rich Hinman and John Kengla!

Zach Williams Recording!

Had a beautiful recording experience with Zach Williams & The Bellow this past week! We took over Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 for three days and recorded live with producer Charlie Peacock and Engineer Richie Biggs who were incredible to work with. Here is a short video from one of the songs that we recorded on the 2nd night called “Teach Me To Know”:
