If you knew me in the 80s, you may remember that I released a (very) independent cassette called SURFACES. Originally recorded in 1987, this album was a collection of some of the songs I had written since 1984. I pretty much locked myself in the piano room at the Huntington Park Drive house with a Fostex 4-track recorder, beat-up keyboard, microphone and trusty black Yamaha piano – and tried to capture the essence of the songs as best I could. I was very proud of how SURFACES ended up, and it really gave me confidence to start performing live whenever I could. People started hearing the album, and soon I couldn’t press them fast enough. Nearly 1000 were sold over a period of 2 years.
