Sample videos from 10

Sample videos from 10

Recently I shared a few sample videos from the new CD 10 on Instagram, so I thought I would share them here as well. These are just 1 minute samples but I will be putting together full length videos soon for most if not all the tracks from 10. For now check out the grooves and let me know what you think.

Chasing Aries

One of the first song I started writing for this album. On this track i’m playing my Fender acoustic electric for rhythm and solo’s, walking that bass line on the Cort Bass guitar. I love the melody and chord changes on this song. Genre = Blues + Smooth Jazz


Make it a double

This one is so much fun, with cool chord changes, the Fender acoustic electric for the melody and chords sounds awesome. That walking bass line, baby grand sound for backup and the Fender Stratocaster bringing in the solo simply rock. Genre = Smooth Jazz

2016 a year in review

2016 in Review

What a year it has been. I started 2016 with a new saying “New Year New Life”.  So I started a new job in 2016 and I love it. More importantly we now have a new member of the family, our first grandson, Tyson Clifford Starks, who has brought more joy and laughter in our world then I could imagine.

I hope 2017, regardless of the news networks, politics and craziness in the world, brings joy, peace health and prosperity to everyone.

The photos in the video are just a few of trips and family events this year. The song is “Your Kiss” from my 2016 release “I’m gonna let it ride

I hope you enjoy

Summer love – video

Summer Love

A wrote this ballad many years ago as a straight ahead guitar picking song. Over the years I’ve wanted to release it but just couldn’t find the right string sounds until now. Summer love could be considered an ambient or movie theme track but I love it. The string arrangement took lots of time but I think the drums where the biggest challenge. Programming the breaks and transitions is always challenge but is also one of my favorite parts. Being able to hear what you want and then struggle to make it happen is very rewarding. All of the animated scenic shots in this video I found for free on various websites. the rest are photos I’ve taken and animation I created.

You will find this track on my ninth album  “I’m gonna let it ride”.  The album has eight cool tracks with a mix of Ballads, Blues and Smooth Jazz. Check out Never meant to make you cry, I miss you and the title track I’m gonna let it ride.
