The New Year is breaking tradition for me. At this time of year I am usually leaving to tour Europe, but this year the Aussies will tour France and Germany without me. The Paris terror attacks and generally depressed global economy forced the band to consolidate touring expense. I've been invited to join them in the summer for the U.S./Candaian tour and the fall U.K. tour, so my time has been opened up to pursue my other interests and continue to refine my solo aspirations.

Durga and I have been recording for some time now when we're able to come together in the same city with our producer Dave Kerzner. Back in November after the Cruise to the Edge, we spent some quality time in the studio, cutting tracks for our forecoming CD. I finally got to record an original of mine that I'm loving! I also got to revisit Pink Floyd's HAVE A CIGAR. It came out great! I plan to return to South America and hope to make it back to Italy as well. 

In the coming weeks I will update this site to include photos and videos from last summer's tour in Argentina with Ummagumma, photos and videos from Cruise to the Edge, and our rehersal work with Dave Kerzner.

This unexpected schedule change also allows me to focus on McBroom Media LLC my new company. I hope to introduce a project I've had in the works in 2016! I'm excited and will be sharing more as things continue to develop.
