Carl Macek died Saturday, April 17th, 2010... on his way to a concert in Topanga, California. I didn't find out until the following day after receiving an e-mail from my friend, web administrator and business manager, Vivian Lanza.
I only met Carl Macek a few times while I was working on the animated televison series, Robotech. After the series ended production, I did say hello to him at a couple of anime conventions... and I spoke with him on the phone about the release of a Robotech soundtrack CD…Read more
Hi everyone! I know it’s been an awfully long time since I personally blogged. 2009, to say the least, has been quite a difficult year for me. Sami Bradley, my ex-wife and mother to our beautiful daughter, Lauren, passed away unexpectedly in March. It was an incredible shock to our entire family. My daughter was and is devastated. Even though we were divorced, there was never any animosity between Sami and myself. We remained close and always spent the holidays together as a family. …Read more
Hi everybody! I want to start off by telling you all how thankful I am for all of you who have supported me and my music throughout the year. I finally released my Robotech acoustic CD and the response from all of you has surpassed my wildest expectations. Although in limited release, the sales have been good and, most of all, the comments (especially from longtime Robotech fans) have been tremendous. Thank you so much for your encouragement! Just hearing the positive reviews made it all worthwhile.
Well, it's finally done! Lonely Soldier Boy ll, an acoustic album is available for sale [Click HERE to order from the Store]. This album is definitely a labor of love...for the true fan of Robotech music. I've talked about this CD for so long now, that I'm not going to say too much about it.
Ross Leitner did a great job of engineering and co-producing this work with me. I appreciate his patience with this project. I had no idea it would be so difficult to make a record with so little instrumentation. It…Read more
Hi everybody! It's been awhile since I've updated anyone as to what I've been doing, so I thought I would check in.
The big news for ROBOTECH fans is that the long delayed acoustic album of ROBOTECH songs finally has a release date! December 1, 2008.
This CD (as I have mentioned ad nauseam over the last year or so) consists of recordings of the original songs from the ROBOTECH television series and from ROBOTECH: The Movie. These are acoustic versions of the songs that I recorded for the…Read more
I've been very lucky to have been working with two rising artists who have been taking up the majority of my time.
I produced and arranged (and played all of the instruments) on two songs, "Oxygen" and "Fever," for an outstanding singer, Erica Shine. Erica got a Grammy nomination for her single "Intoxicating" on her first album by the same name with her twin sister in their electronica pop duo, Fantasy Twins, before going out on her own. Born in Seoul, South Korea, Erica lived in Japan before… Read more
