In 2018, I planned to learn Logic and just play II/IV Jazz changes all winter and get the standards I've studied years ago back into my hands as well as having fun with Electronic music. But, a new client, Dan Gallery, wanted to learn ProTools. He is a conservatory trained classical pianist not a guitarist. After our initial conversation he became a new kind of student for me. Along with him learning the process of Pro Tools, we began working on his music and then we began a collaboration.
Soon after, Brent Edmondson joined the team who adds another compositional voice as well as mixing and mastering. He comes from the same classically trained background and performs bass with the Philadelphia Orchestra and numerous other symphonic organizations.
End of 2020, JBD MusicWorks was formed and a great collaboration has begun.
Always looking for a common ground and also un-common grounds that work from their differences.
Along side touring and band commitments, I always did projects "outside" of that sand box.
My adventures lead me into creating scores for numerous theater productions, choreographers, indie films, industrials, art documentaries & national TV commercials.
There is never enough time in the day, but there is always tomorrow.
What does it take to make it "more better" ? What does today sound like?
John Charles Jopson
Mississippi John Hurt
and especially Bob Lohrmann
