This is my first EP. I had lots of mostly-finished song demos that I had never done anything with. I decided to polish them a little bit and release them.
The only thing I've ever won in my life was the BC Rich guitar from Premier Guitar Magazine that I used to record this song. I decided to put together a track in case anyone looked up the winner.
It was quite an honor was to be asked to play on Nancy Sinatra's CD Nancy Sinatra. I played on the song Two Shots Of Happy, One Shot Of Sad which was written by Bono and The Edge from U2 and features the performances of U2 members Larry Mullen and Adam Clayton, as well as keyboard legend Don Randi.
Cathouse Thursday: Walking My Elephant, Nashville Baby, 'Til Death Do Us Party, Jezebel. Will solo: Travel By Stars, Nice Obsession. Will is a great singer and multi-instrumentalist whose style is a great match for my playing. Check his site for Nice Obsession, a CD that we recorded in 2001.
Don Randi & Quest doing jazz versions of songs by the Beach Boys. Don was the piano player on many of the original Beach Boys recordings. Brian Makes Me Smile is the only original song on here, which Don and I wrote for Brian Wilson.

The debut CD from the Maries, produced by Don Randi. They are a mother and daughter duo and this release has great vocals all the way through. I'm playing electric, acoustic, 12-string, nylon string. The first track we recorded was Africa, which is a good showcase for my guitar playing.
