Leverage Models covers Kate Bush

Recently released is a compilation of Kate Bush covers organized by the Bush League. The track was actually a "jam" in the studio for a potential Leverage Models song that ended up being the backing for Alena Spangler of Tiny Hazard to just absolutely KILL IT on.   The compilation is a benefit for Reproductive Rights.

New IKILLYA song/video

I am not in this video as I am not in the band, however those are my drummings in the song. The good news is Ikillya looks like they finally found a permanent drummer. I had been helping them out for a bit on some shows and did the drums on most of their first record "Recon". Last summer I got a call in the 11th hour that they needed me to do their new album also. So it was off to Staten Island to do 2 days of drum tracking. I believe the record "Vae Victus" is out in April on Megaforce Records.

New releases from Zao, Emanuel and the Fear, Leverage Models, Amateur Blonde, Ikillya to name a few. In addition, some new projects and collaborators on the horizon. As part of my late 2013 early 2014 catch up. Here is a video from last fall's Leverage Models album featuring the wonderful Sharon Van Etten. Enjoy
