I just stumbled on to this forum. I am a composer-singer-songwriter in Los Angeles and I do Burt Bacharach-Hal David tribute shows. I have met Burt twice and am friendly with Hal's son, Jim.

Looking forward to participating here.

Welcome! Just joined too. I am from Chile, but have my home in NY now. Thinking about going to Bacharach's next concert on December 14th in Los Angeles. I feel I can't miss that show!

I know a good violinist in LA who can help with sessions 8)
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice, there is.

I used to score TV series like “Zorro” and low budget films where I had enough of a budget to hire great musicians here in LA, but nowadays it’s all so low budget that it’s mostly me and my samples in Logic Pro. I am good at it but I miss those days.
