Composing music focused on helping telling the story of one of the biggest science missions of our time was an exceptional experience.
For this project I chose to use a symphonic hybrid approach.The depths of the orchestral sound weaved into modern electronic tones allowed the music to express the sense of wonderment and scope of this bigger-than-life story.
“ScoreSongs provides music composition, songwriting, production, and music supervision to leading media giants such as Marvel, Netflix, Disney, Electronic Arts, and others. ScoreSongs is a collaboration that began in 2009 between songwriter/composer Guy Erez and music supervisor David Ari Leon.”
It has been a great ride working alongside David, his music supervision talent and skills enabling me to push myself to a higher level of composing and producing music.
our collaboration created hundreds of TV episodes Theme songs and score. I feel fortunate working in this unique setting and looking forward to sharing our future projects with you.
Songwriting is a big part of my career, I love weaving music and poetry together. Miracle was born after I was invited to write for Alan Parsons new album.
Alan’s idea to bring Jason Mraz to the mixture has lifted the song to a higher level. We recorded Miracle live at Alan’s beautiful studio in Santa Barbara California, Here’s a short interview about the making of “Miracle”.
“Miracle” was released as the first single of the album “The Secret”, playing bass on this album was a great experience, You can enjoy the entire album in the link below.
“LIGHTS AND BRIDGES doesn’t demand attention. It’s the kind of subtle musical-spell one has to lean into to truly receive. Producer Guy Erez creates immersive arrangements that magnetize via their purity and restraint.“
It started with an inspiration and developed into a friendship, I met Tom Rossy through a mutual friend after he moved to LA from New-York. When he came by my studio and played a naked version of “Superball”, I knew I wanted to produce it, It’s a beautiful song that started a journey that evolved into “Lights and Bridges”.
It’s been over six years of traveling the world with this great group of musicians, led by the great Alan Parsons.
Being together for that long, both on and off stage, created closeness and a strong sense of family within the band, It helps all of us grow both as musicians and people.

Animal poaching is a subject I became aware of In the past year, after meeting A gentleman by the name of Peter Knight, heading the WildAid organization with a mission to end the illegal wildlife trade, and protect endangered species from disappearing from this world.
I was moved by the cause and the vision. Composing music for the campaign was my way to contribute, to hopefully put an end to terrible practices.
I see this mission as important, so we can preserve these wonderful animals to roam safely.

Some things move really fast, late July i got a call from my friend, producer Kerry Brown, he wanted me to play bass on a new song he co-produced with Linda Perry who also wrote the song. We got into the studio the same day. Our session had a great flow, It’s always fun to play on a song that’s so well written and being a part of a project that a shining star like Miley Cyrus is heading.

Fragile has some lovely visuals to go with…i hope you like it as much as i do.
I wrote this song with Pj Olsson and Alan Parsons, and had the pleasure of playing acoustic guitar, bass and keyboards on this recording.
I co-wrote the song “Best Days of Our Lives”with Rob Giles and Rich Jacques from “Right The Stars”, It was selected as the theme of the new global Xbox 360 Kinect Rush Pixar ad campaign. I’ve never seen my kids so excited about what I do!
Had a great experience working with Ziggy Marley playing bass and acoustic guitar on a song he wrote with Linda Perry which was produced by Kerry Brown for Occupy Wall Street. Ziggy definitely channeled his father’s spirit in this one. Look for it to be released in the next couple of months.
I was recently featured in an article on the ASCAP blog titled “Diversifying Your Music Career”. You can read the article here.
Just got back from playing three shows in Costa Rica with the Alan Parsons Live Project. The first night was an amazing experience playing outdoors in front of 35,000 people in the capital, San Jose, as the closing show of a week-long international art festival.
What a great experience at The Village last weekend as Alan Parsons was producing a song I wrote with him and P.J Olsson as part of his two day master class. Great honor to have musicians like Vinnie Colaiuta, Nathan East, Rami Jaffee and Michael Thompson play on our song. The end result was amazing.
