TELL US ABOUT YOUR LATEST PROJECT, RECORDING OR PERFORMANCE:
My last performance was at the M-Bar in Hollywood. Had a wonderful show with many talented artists. A great show for the LA Women in Music… and a wonderful buffet.
Recording / producing daily… for dozens of artists as well as myself. I do almost all of the production myself using Garage Band, Reason, Logic, Pro Tools, M-audio gear, Apple computers, Roland gear, Trash, Ozone, T-racks, and Amplitube 2.
My lifelong project has been and will continue to be songwriting and producing… or as some call it “Making Beats”.
I am loving the home studio revolution, the recent advances in computer technology and soft-synths, and the overall mobility that the Namba Gear Shaka + Mac Book combo meal has provided me… along with a USB bus-powered keyboard (thanks M-Audio), I can go around the world and use my laptop for more than just email and internet – I can continue CREATING.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE BEST ABOUT YOUR NAMBA GEAR BAG?
The Shaka bag looks cool… single strap bag is nice and stylish. It has lots of little pockets for cables and smaller things (like lyric sheets or USB keys).
