about the project

When I commissioned Dan for this project I knew what the final results would be, as Dan and I go back four and a bit decades to our high school era where we performed together in various bands and stage shows in our home town of Erie, Pennsylvania (USA). Dan was an accomplished drummer and percussionist back then and I have always wanted to find a vehicle to utilize his talents in a film or television project. I am so very proud of this release and admire Dan’s musicality, professionalism, musicianship, technical ability and our deep friendship….  with the greatest respect to Dan – THIS PROJECT SOARS!

Quote from Dan:

“While composing each percussion track in this collection, I was always thinking cinematically. I had a specific vision for each track, but I kept in mind that these tracks could be used across multiple genres.

I mainly constructed the tracks so that individual sections could be sliced and diced as stand-alone grooves.” (McNamara / 2021)
