I’ve been told that my range as a composer is “somewhere between Christmas and being burned alive”. I suppose Grand Boulevard lives up to that description. Despite the eclectic mix of genres, this album was inspired by a common thread of exploration and creativity. The incredibly versatile guest vocals of Charles Iverson enhanced the project immensely. Charles was able to tackle anything I threw at him. Whether it was rock, pop, beats, mashups, British blues, heavy metal, bossa nova, light jazz, or anything else, he brought his fresh and unifying take to each track. In the end, the combination of the mosaic of genres and our unique generational perspectives led to our becoming neighbors on the Grand Boulevard of music.
