I am in the middle of recording my next record, which is essentially a collaborative global recording project: #ProjectELECTRICO. We’ve come off an amazing journey thus far—from the Venice in California to the Venice in Italy, and from Istanbul in Turkey to Oaxaca de Juarez in México.

As I prepare to record some vocals over the next 12 weeks in Austin, LA, and Ireland, I am reminded of my personal recording mantra. I thought I’d share it with you in the event it might be helpful to you as a singer, artist, or entrepreneur, because the message has no boundaries.


1. I am divinely on time.
2. I acknowledge what I bring when I walk into a room and when I walk out of a room.

Monte Albán: Soundscape & Photo Documentary

We are about six miles outside of Oaxaca de Juarez in Oaxaca, México, where we visited the archaeological site of Monte Albán for some history, soundscape recording, and an impromptu photo shoot…because this place is just flipping awesome. Monte Albán captures the vibe of #ProjectELECTRICO and the sound direction of the album: Global Galactic Pop (Ancient to Astro).

Recording in Oaxaca, México

In March we went to Oaxaca de Juarez in the region of Oaxaca, México, to record some amazing musicians for #‎ProjectELECTRICO‬: The Making of a Global Galactic Pop record around the world with Kathleen Blackwell and Ronan Chris Murphy.

Diego López made this incredible video about our heart-driven journey in Oaxaca. Diego shares some cool gear for recording remotely, plus he captures the nuances of Oaxaca sound to include a Bajo Quinto, Baritone Sax, Snare & Bass Drum, Tuba, plus an 18th Century Restored Pipe Organ. Enjoy the beauty that is Oaxaca!
