My record label, Immortal Records/Sony gave my original song "To All The Lovely Ladies" to Doug Liman, the director of "Go". It ended up making the cut and was featured in the original soundtrack, curated by BT. The official music video for To All The Lovely Ladies was written and directed by McG, (director of Charlie's Angels, This Means War, producer of The OC, Supernatural, Nikita).
From 2000-2002, I wrote multiple songs to spec for MTV's original series, Jackass, starring Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, and Bam Margera. For the roller jump episode, my original composition matched the scene too closely. They sent me back a request for a wild punk score that had little relationship to the footage.
I wrote two compositions for Starz's hit sitcom, Blunt Talk, produced by Seth MacFarlane and starring Patrick Stewart. For one of the songs, I re-arranged a track from my former comedy band, Anus, which was originally called "So Hard For Me". Ironically, it ended up being the background music for the airport bathroom scene.
I was working with Grammy nominated artist, Meredith Brooks and Jennifer Love Hewitt on her fourth album, "BareNaked" as a co-producer. Meredith suggested we go for a song that had the integrity of Bob Dylan with a modern pop vibe. In two hours time, I completed the track with Guy Erez (bassist for Alan Parsons Project, Miley Cyrus) and Emerson Swinford (guitarist for Rod Stewart, Liz Phair, Paul Oakenfold, Natalie Cole).
After a KoRn concert at the L.A. Forum, the words and rhythm for the chorus of Boom Da Boom just popped into my head. The next day, I went into the studio with my cohort in crime, Bernard Bernard and we fleshed out the track. My manager, Steve Richards, who also worked with Slipknot, Mudvayne, and Paula Abdul, had a connection at Disney and the rest is history.
I wrote the theme song for MTV2's Not Exactly News. They requested a humorous electronic track that paid tribute to classic news programming music and incorporated horns.
