Out Now: The World Keeps Turning 

2021 wasn't a great year for playing live, but it was a busy year for me in the studio.  I'm happy to announce the release of "The World Keeps Turning", the single from the soon to be released "Flights Of Fancy" album.  The single will be streaming from all typical outlets soon, and the video is out now!  Check it out here:

New Single: "Fade" 

The newest song from me is "Fade".  It was released as a digital single on February 5th, and on YouTube as a video on the 9th.  I was fortunate to have Bruce Moody, Randy Miller and Jon Stone join me for this recording.  It's a special song for me, and as such, I'm making it available for FREE download on the Counterfeit Productions Music Store page of this site.

Out Now!!! Bruce Moody - Forever Fresh 

Seems like all my music projects take longer than expected, and work on Bruce Moody's "Forever Fresh" album is no exception.  Bruce and I worked hard to bring twenty three songs, spanning seven years and seven different studios, together into a cohesive sounding album, but the time and effort payed off.  "Forever Fresh" is a power pop gem, highlighting Bruce's knack for up tempo, happy sounding songs.  I was fortunate enough to accompany Bruce on some of these songs over the years, along with a handful of other Houston (or ex-Houston) musicians.

"Forever Fresh" was originally planned as a vinyl release on the Wizard In Vinyl label in Japan.  That plan is still in the works, but to accelerate things a bit, Bruce and I decided to do a limited CD release on the Counterfeit Records label, with digital downloads available at all the typical outlets.  Check it out;




New Movies - World Premier in 2021 

In 1984, former Just Boys bandmate, Robert Woodrich, and I, started a new band; New Movies.  Of all the bands where my songwriting factored in, New Movies is the most obscure.  The band recorded a total of seven songs in the year or so we were together, but none were ever released.To my great surprise, and elation, Mean Bean Records has proposed including the New Movies song "Japanese Car" on a second compilation album, slated for release in mid 2021 and titled "Standing In The Shadows, Volume 2". 

Thanks again Martin Tremblay and Mean Bean Records!


Coming Soon: True Hearts - Mean Bean Records 2021 Compilation 

Following on the heels of the fab Just Boys/True Hearts package, Mean Bean Records is releasing a compilation album titled "Standing In The Shadows, Volume 1" in early 2021.  The album focuses on releases from 1979 through 1983.  Mean Bean owner, Martin, very graciously proposed including "Talkin' Bout Girls", from the original 1980 True Hearts album, which was finally released on Kool Kat Musik in 2013.  Considering the fairly recent album release, and the brand new Just Boys/True Hearts release, I wanted to do something unique for this comp album.  I decided to go back to the original multi-track master and completely remix "Talkin' Bout Girls".  In addition to much better sound, due to newer technology, I discovered a piano track that had not been included in the 1980 mix, which is included here in this new version.

A SELLOUT! Just Boys and True Hearts - Collector's Package from Mean Bean Records 

It took a little time, but the Just Boys/True Hearts package on Mean Bean Records was released on December 2nd, and sold out by 10am the next day.  Martin Tremblay created an innovative and high quality package to house the two discs.  Both discs were from the original 1977 and 1980 pressings, and the package included free download codes for seven previously unreleased Just Boys songs, the "Just Boys; Legends In Their Own Minds" bookette, and the full, remastered True Hearts album.  All in all, a very nice, and value packed, release.  A very big "thanks" to Mean Bean Records, and Marc-Andre Sevard, who did the design work for the cover.
