Comments

My first non-commercial CD "First Cut" was released in 1999 and was available at MP3.com until they folded. It was recorded on a Roland VS-880EX. A second EP CD, recorded on the Roland VS-2480, has been released under the band name "EMMSLY" and is titled "Stark Reflections" It was released on 15 February 2008. It was mastered at Sterling Sound in New York by Ryan Smith. It is downloadable at itunes, emusic, amazon.com, napster, and rhapsody. We have completed a third CD under the band name "EMMSLY" it was recorded with Pro Tools and has been released and is available at CDBABY and various retail outlets. This project was mastered at The Sound Lab in New Jersey by Tom Scheponik, Senior Mastering Engineer, and by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound in New York. Tom has mastered many up and coming artists and Ryan has mastered many well known artists i.e. Green Day, Motley Crue (Carnival of Sin - Live), Talking Heads (Several Cuts), and Cyndi Lauper (At Last) to name a few.
