This is more or less the story about how Blue Bass Drum music/recordings came into being. Music has been recognized as healing energy for centuries. Music has been a major gift to me for spiritual, emotional and physical healing and grounding. I’ve loved just about everything about music since I can remember. New Orleans and all of south Louisiana is very well known as breeding grounds for what we call “musical families”. Usually it is referring to a fairly well-known family name and the brothers, sisters, parents, aunts and uncles etc., who are all involved in music in some way. I’ve always been in awe of the thought of it all. Examples of modern day musical families from south Louisiana would include the Neville family and the Marsalis family. I’m not sure that my experience fully qualifies to be a part of this wonderful phenomena, but it was musical, it happened in my family and it was pure majik. It seems to have begun when I was gifted a violin or fiddle, as they call it here, by my great grandfather on my Pop’s side of the family when I was 5. That majikal fiddle stayed locked in a closet for the next 15 years.
In the meantime, I took on the education of a lifetime. Not because it was a choice, but rather, because it was a way of life in this enchanted spiritual place that we live, here in south Louisiana. I can’t tell every story, but I can say that the music that was played in the household when I was 10, still gives me goosebumps until this day. The playlist was not large, but it was powerful and it was genuinely Nawlins. The major culprit of this environment, straight out of the University of Hard-Knocks was my father or “pops” as we called him. Let me see if I can give you an example playlists we were exposed to as kids:

Music has been recognized as healing energy for centuries. For me it’s been a matter of survival. Music has been a a blessing for spiritual, emotional and physical healing that I could not ever repay. It’s simply what keeps me as grounded as I could ever be. I’ve loved just about everything about music since I can remember. It seems to have begun when I was gifted majikal fiddle, as they call it here, by my Great Grandfather on my Pop’s side of the family. This fiddle was given to me when I was 5, because I liked to listen to my great-grandfather play it.
I am overjoyed and too blessed and profoundly humbled to have been able to experience what it’s like to compose, record, and play your own music, and like it (most of the time).
