Perhaps you’ve already seen these cute little nuggets of online ad out there. GEICO’s “What’s Your Reason?” campaign was one of the many spots I worked on in 2014. The song for the commercials is sung by the lovely Kaija Matiss!
This fall, I had the pleasure of doing sound design for the brilliant play, “Powerhouse” about the genius composer Raymond Scott. It was written by the luminary Josh Luxenberg and directed by the visionary Jon Levin. And as a cherry on top, the NY Times gave the play a stellar write-up with a flattering nod to the sound design. Read it here. And buy tickets to see the play here! It runs at the New Ohio Theatre in the West Village until November 23, so hurry!
In case you missed it, I recently released my first record, “Lonely Romance EP”, as Strange Weather. You can download it for free by clicking here. And you can watch the video for the title track by clicking here or on the clown above.
It’s been a while since my last post, but be patient with me, folks, I’m busy. Here’s one of the GEICO commercials I’ve done in the past year.
If you don’t yet know The Kloons, now’s your chance you lose a couple hours to YouTube. These three incredibly likeable dudes release a new video every Friday – hilarious, weird, thoughtful, whatever. This summer they asked me to do a song for a music video, and what resulted was “The Laundromat Hustle”. For the song, I went into a laundromat at 3 in the morning, recording all the sounds I could find, then went home, chopped them up, and started sampling until I came up with something fun. You can buy the song here.
You’ve all probably seen this guy cruising around your screens for the past year or so. He’s part Swamp Thing, part Pizza the Hut, and completely made of money. While I can’t take credit for writing or performing The Allman Brothers’ classic song, “Midnight Rider” (which is being used in two of the Money Man commercials, click here), I was lucky enough to do the music for the other spots with DCP Productions, the creators of these beautiful spots. Click here to see the “GEICO – Money Man Gas Station” spot and click here for the “GEICO – Money Man Boat” spot, both from last year’s campaign. And click here to see “GEICO – Money Man Bike Rally” from this year. Keep an eye for more Money Man later this year.
