What’s the Deal?

What’s the deal with Keep It Wild? Twelve years ago, I started recording an album with David Newton at Rollercoaster Recording in Burbank, California. Dave played bass, Joel Isaac Black played drums and I played guitar and keys. We were lucky to get Jessica Espeleta to lay down lead guitar on a few tracks. My brother, David Alexander, even played acoustic guitar on a cover. I was excited about the album and we were well on our way.

For various reasons, recording came to a halt and the tracks lay dormant on a hard drive. During 2020’s lockdown, I rediscovered the songs and put together the best of them for the Keep It Wild EP which will be released this Friday the 13th via RIP Ben Lee Records. Not many photos exist from this time, but today I am happy to share a few shots with you, in the hope that you get a sense of time and place. Jackie was a big part of the process as usual. Scroll through for a peek. And yes, that’s Kim Fowley in that last shot.

A big thank you goes to Dave, Bekki Netwon, Joel and Jessica, without whom I couldn’t have finished these songs. I’m still really proud of them.

Keep It Wild – Teaser 4

One week to go until the Keep It Wild EP is unleashed into the world via RIP Ben Lee Records. Here you have the fourth and final trailer and what a fantastic journey it has been. I can’t wait to share this song and video with you!

Today is Bandcamp Friday which means that Bandcamp waives their revenue share, so anything you order on their website goes directly to the artist – that’s me. It’s a good day to pre-order the Keep It Wild EP and, if you don’t already own it, our debut album. You can find them here.

Thanks and have a great weekend!
