I’ve slacked off on getting my Quarterly Reports done. I wanted to at least throw a quick post up here to let you know that I have not fallen off the face of the earth. Here is some of what’s happening. I produced and mixed a full-length record for Moody Little Sister. We master in early July. Stay tuned for release details etc. I am just beginning a new recording project with a long-time collaborator [...]

ON SCREEN: “Wonder” from the new Droge & Summers Blend EP will be featured in the pilot for a new TV show airing this fall. Details later. ON STAGE: I will perform a few songs at The Triple Door in Seattle on 8/2/14. The gig is billed as Ian Moore & Friends. I’m one of the friends. I imagine the gig to have a feel of singing around a campfire, which Ian and I do [...]

Regular readers of the All Droge News Compendium know that this project has been brewing—on and off—for many years. I am thrilled this work is finally seeing the light of day. “Sunday Painter,” an instrumental [...]

QUARTERLY REPORTS: Summer & Fall 2012

I’ve had a hard time carving out time to write my Quarterly Report. Here is a quick look at some of what’s been going on. Today, I’m working on a friend’s record. The project is hush-hush. As soon as he is ready to let the cat out of the bag, I’ll spill the beans. I am in the middle of creating music for two national TV spots. Until the spots air, I'm sworn to secrecy. [...]

ABC’s Castle used the Droge & Summers Blend song “Sad Clown” in the background during a bar scene. I tuned in, but got so sucked into the plot that I didn’t even notice my own song playing. Vanity Fair featured a track from the A Lot Like You soundtrack album in a behind-the-scenes video glimpse into a photo shoot with Sam Jones and thirteen top character actors. HAVE A LOOK. Ron Gatty’s new digital single, [...]

I recently spent a week in the south of France attending Mix with the Masters. The teacher for the week-long seminar on record production was TCHAD BLAKE. I returned to my studio re-energized and inspired beyond belief. I hope to find time to share thoughts about this life-changing experience. In the meantime, a PHOTO. The mini-documentary Something in the Water will air nationally on the PBS show American Masters. The piece, directed by Ward Serrill, [...]

I’m going to knock this report out faster than usual. Punctuation and grammar perfection be damned. Who’s got time for such trifles? It’s summer. And if I'm not hunkered down in the studio, or setting up vacation replies on my email accounts, I should be outside enjoying the cold. (You Seattleites know what I”m talking about.) We made a nice little video for the A Lot Like You soundtrack album. The film's editor Eric Frith [...]
