My new single, “New Day Dawn” was written years back when data integrity and misinformation had not yet sunk to the lows in which we see it today. When it comes to home life, I’m relatively reserved, and I don’t care for other people’s drama. So the idea of inviting vitriol spewing idiots into my own living room through the cable TV, was as attractive as hiring out a pyromaniac to handle my gas and electricity.
It’s a homage to a time when a man was only as good as his word. It’s also is a nod to an upstate New York college dorm house party where I saw the sunrise on the rooftop while drinking from a massive jug of cheap wine. Good times had by all.
About this song
Consistent with past singles, I’m releasing two song versions with an additional instrumental mix. Once again, the single was tracked in our Carlsbad, California home studio during a live session recorded in early 2022 with a live drummer, bassist and minimal overdubs.
This particular song highlights the playing of my friend and bandmate Mike Pritchard on keys. If I had to choose one musician that has brought me closest to my own creative voice, it’s Mike. I’ve always loved the great jazz organ players of the classic era like Jimmy Smith, Jack McDuff, Charles Earland, and new school players like Joey Defrancesco. Whenever I play with Mike, be it in the studio or live, I’m placed deep in the emotional source of the song. It makes my job as easy as breathing.
Along with Mike, are featured musicians who are also among my lifelong friends. It is a gift to record and perform with such talented people.
- Mike Pritchard on Keyboards
- Dan Greenbaum on Bass

- Mixed & Mastered by Mike Butler
