New TV show posted on YouTube

There is a fully produced half-hour video of a performance I did that has been posted to YouTube. On the program, I perform 4 originals and 6 covers. The show was taped in Carson City, Nevada during Sept. 2013. I’m told it was in rotation there on a regular basis. I’m pleased with the performance- hope you will be, too. Aloha!

NOW AVAILABLE: Chapman Stick Meets The Beatles- Vol. 2

 

I’ve just completed my 17th independent release “The Chapman Stick Meets The Beatles- Volume Two” and it is NOW AVAILABLE for purchase as a digital download on CDBaby,  iTunes and all the usual places to buy digital music.

My first Beatles CD (Volume One) has been one of my most popular CDs since it’s release in May 2011. I still absolutely love The Beatles and there’s no shortage of great Beatles tunes to reinterpret on The Chapman Stick: so why not? On this new Beatles album, I’ve introduced a lot of new sounds and textures using a Stick outfitted with a guitar synthesizer. It’s a whole new sound for The Stick and a new take on 15 more great Beatles tunes. I’m confident you’ll enjoy them. Just click on My Store and ~viola! you’ll be hearing popular Beatles tunes like you’ve never heard them before! Load it on up to your iPhone, iPod or iPad and off ya go on yer merry way mate!

New Videos on YouTube

Recently I have gone through my personal archives and I’ve found videos I shot while still on Maui that were never posted or shared. Two of them feature songs from my latest CD release “Snap Shots”. The original Chapman Stick composition “Little Miss Laptop” was shot in the living room of my Lahaina apartment on the new SG-12 Stick Guitar instrument. The oldie, “Sleepwalk” was shot at the Whalers Village Concert series in Kaanapali and the Maui Photo Collage was put together in 2009 using the original tune “Front Street Stroll” from my CD release “Hawaiian Paradise”. My personal favorite is the heavy metal version of “Blue Hawaii” that was shot in the hills of Launiopoco with the island of Lanai in the background. I got so tired of playing the Elvis version of this old movie tune that I had to do something to retain my sanity. I also used the SG-12 Stick Guitar instrument in this video.
