The Pale Blue Eye

The Pale Blue Eye

THE PALE BLUE EYE is coming to select theatres in December, and coming to Netflix on January 6th. This was a real bucket list film for me to work on. After many years of admiring (and teaching) the films of inimitable writer, director, and producer Scott Cooper, I...

Confess, Fletch

Get the Album first

The first 3 tracks on the new album will be released on 3.20.2020, but the rest of the album will not be available until this summer on the streaming platforms and stores. These platforms favor singles over albums for playlist placement.

So I will be sharing the entire album for email subscribers in a 7 day album experience. (Don't worry, it's just about building a community, not about spamming you with emails!).

On album release day, you will receive 1 email a day for 7 days that leads you to a behind the scenes look that details what each piece means, how it was written, and how it was recorded. You can download the high res audio (available nowhere else), stream the music, look at the scores, and learn how it was recorded.

Thank you for joining me on this musical journey! Check your email inbox (and Junk Mail!) for the Welcome email.
