Here is my brand new single release ‘Van’, an ode to getting off the grid and living outside the norm. Co-written with my longtime musical brother Bryan Kessler, ‘Van’ features the usual cast of outstanding players including Michael Ruff (Bonnie Raitt), Jimmy Johnson (James Taylor) and Keith Carlock (Steely Dan) plus the amazing guitarist Dean Parks who has recorded with Steely Dan, Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder and Bob Dylan, to name a few. The song is in honor of Walter Becker of Steely Dan, who had this groove down! ‘Van’ is the 8th single release from my upcoming 7th album, and is available on all download and streaming platforms.
Aloha from Kauai. Please enjoy my new Bossa-inspired instrumental ‘It Goes Without Saying’, featuring longtime co-writer and guitarist Bryan Kessler on nylon string lead, Allan Thomas on acoustic guitar, Jimmy Johnson on bass, Michael Ruff on keys and M.B. Gordy on percussion. Soundtrack for the times, moody and mellow…Any playlist adds would be greatly appreciated.
