Performing an acoustic rendition of Keith Urban's #1 hit song "You Gonna Fly" with LoCash at Nashville's famous Blackbird Studios in February 2015.

I was blessed to be a participant in the fourth installment of The Nashville Drummers Jam, a benefit concert featuring some of the biggest drummers and musicians in Nashville's professional music circuit.  One of the six drummers I got to jam with during this Drummers Jam, which was a tribute to John Bonham of Led Zeppelin, was Boone Daughdrill, drummer extraordinare for The Band Perry!  Check us out grooving the legendary Zeppelin tune, "D'Yer Mak'er!"

Another angle of Boone Daughdrill from The Band Perry and I jammin' the Led Zeppelin classic, "D'yer Mak'er," at the Nashville Drummers Jam at Douglas Corner in April 2014.  The song also features Matt Farley on vocals, and Chris Nix from Chuck Wicks's band on guitar.

On December 31, 2007, The James Douglas Show was the opening act for legendary soul act The Whispers for a New Years Eve concert at Isleta Resort and Casino.  When The Whispers' bass player ran late because of a flight delay, the tour manager asked if anyone in our band knew "And the Beat Goes On" so they could do a soundcheck.  Of course, after countless years of being in Top 40 bands, I knew the song...but I had just put brand new strings on my bass, and didn't get a chance to tune up before The Whispers' musical director counted the song in.  I did some tuning "on the fly," and managed to get through the song.  It was an awesome experience, and that rhythm section was just awesome!

A little throwback to my days with The James Douglas Show.  I recorded four albums in my eleven-year tenure with the band, the last of which was called "9," which was somewhat of a departure for us as we leaned a little more toward the pop side of things.  However, one song on the album fell right into place with the funky side we had become known for.  We had been performing "365" as part of our set pretty much since the beginning, but had never recorded the song, but it made sense for us to put it on our album since it fit us so well.  Written by Mike Cee Carpenter and Anthony Honore, and originally performed by Honore, this song definitely stands out as one of my favorite recordings during my time with The JDS.  Recorded on a Fender American Deluxe 5-string Jazz Bass directly into a Radial FireFly DI.

I was lucky to perform on two albums for an Albuquerque-based progressive rock trio called Illustrated Man.  Both of those albums were concept albums, the latter of which was released after I had already moved to Nashville.  Although equally brilliant, and brilliantly written, I take a great deal of pride in my work on "Zebra Hotel" because of the freedom John Wall, Seth Launer, and Derald Padilla allowed me on the instrument.  "Zebra," one of the tracks on this album, was particularly fun because it permitted me to come up with a "signature" line for the song, which I performed on a Fender American Standard 5-string Precision Bass plugged directly into an Avalon U5.  If you are in the mood to listen to some insightful, brilliant, yet fun music, please download this album, as well as their previous effort, "Welcome to Your Life," which one Best Pop Album and Best Rock Song ("I Am Not"...on which I played bass) at the New Mexico Music Awards. "Zebra Hotel" is available here: https://music.apple.com/us/album/zebra-hotel/1181235317

I had the pleasure of performing on one album by my dear friends, hONEyhoUSe back in 2012, and I knew immediately after I stepped out of the studio that it was going to be a special record.  I plowed through 11 songs in one night, performing on all but one of the tracks on the album.  Bass-wise, this album has it all...electric, fretless, upright...it was a bass player's dream.  But a bass player always plays for the song, which is the main reason this was such a special project to be involved with.  "Fire On the Hill" won "Song of the Year" at the 2013 New Mexico Music Awards, and the album, "Medicine Lodge," earned producer John Wall the Norman Petty Producer's Award.  For "Fire On the Hill," I used my 1975 Fender Jazz Bass straight into an Avalon U5.  Download the album here: https://music.apple.com/us/album/medicine-lodge/603375267

I had the pleasure of filling in on bass for The Swon Brothers to debut their new single, “Travelin’ On,” on Today in Nashville in November 2019! Check out the live performance here, and make sure to download “Travelin’ On,” which also features the incomparable Vince Gill, wherever you get your music!  Using my incredible custom PRS Grainger 5-string with D'Addario NYXLs along with my Pig Hog instrument cable into a Radial passive DI.
