Latest MM news

An open letter to Adobe.

As some of you Adobe Creative Cloud users know, or are finding out... all of a sudden, folks can't access the Adobe Fireworks program, myself included.  Because Adobe has decided to no longer let the program "check in" with their servers. …

Farewell to a friend…

Rick and I weren't close buddies... but we connected - for over two decades. Sometimes, he was like a big kid, and others, he was ethereal, mercurial and all-knowing. 

NightRail 2024

I honestly can’t remember if the music was inspired by the video – but I suspect that it was just a happy meeting of the medias.

A word of heartfelt thanks.

Just a note of thanks... Bandcamp wrote me this morning to say that I had the best month on BC since I started there back in 2009.

The more you dig…

In searching for files after the ASR-X video last night, I stumbled upon this shoot of a rough vocal session from 2011.

Storm…

A calming view - 2024 audio remix & master of a 2010 recording, from the 62 album.

It’s alive!

On the heels of unearthing a bunch of old tracks, I went to seek out some sounds, and got some wonderful surprises...

As promised…

In my video update, I talked about re-releases of videos to coincide with the release of 62....

Rebuilding the desk

Well, it turns out that the sonics in my room were suffering because of speaker placement - which meant I had to rearrange my desk - a bunch.

CC Jam 72

In which naughty Mister Lee gleefully waves around a prized old unreleased Mark instrumental.

Lotsa Gratitude and an update…

An update from MM.... who also reminds himself that one must remember to check one's batteries before shooting a video.  Sigh.

62

I was born in 1962. This January, I turn 62. At the end of October, I got this crazy idea.

Interview on Radio Kingston

I had a chance to visit with Kevin Godbey of Kingston Happenings, for an hour of conversation about life and the 62 album. And I got to hear some of 62 live on the radio for the first time.  What a treat. You can hear the interview…

My yearly ode…

Decided to switch it up... maybe my doing it on guitar all these years was messing with the universe's juju. Thank you for being here, and being you. Happy New Year!

I FINALLY recorded a holiday track.

Those of you who know me know that I've been recording for a REALLY long time. Seems like forever... but in all that time, I never recorded a holiday song. Well, a lovely 'net DJ named Anne Alma, who has been very kind in spinning…

A new video!!!

I released a new video over the weekend!!!! It's "From the Inside", from the Let It Go album.

Anatomy of a song… that damned riff.

So here's how it works, sometimes. If you're VERY blessed, a song comes to you in one fell swoop. I am hardly ever blessed in that department. Most of the time, my songs come in the form of musical riffs, verses, choruses, solo sections…

I TAPED an update, Dave…

(The title is a loving dig at Dave Lee from The Bugcast, who ribbed me for saying that I was "taping" an update for Patreon.) I just posted a video update to Patreon, in which I discuss a guitar build, plans for an upcoming video and the…

RIP, Dave…

  Once upon a time, there was a boy who loved making music. He taught himself piano, with a little help, then guitar, then drums and bass, and eventually some awful saxophone. As he grew older, he started recording music and writing…

This Town

I wrote this sweet, sad thing once upon a time.  I had to revisit it for possible submission for a festival performance, so I decided to marry it to an appropriate video.  I found a lovely one by Matthias Groeneveld of the Netherlands. (You…

Do you love your guitar?

Well, I obviously do. And if you do.... I'm working on a new track, and a video to go along with it - and I'd love to include a pic of you loving your guitar (or bass) in it. (You'll be in the credits, of course.) So if you'd like me to…

News for my 60th spin around the sun…

Greetings to you and yours... I hope this finds you well at the start of a new year that, I HOPE, won't be as crazy as the past couple have been. I thought that my 60th birthday would be a good time to reconnect with you all, and give…

My yearly ode to you
