"Dear Steve Bartlett,
Hello and Happy Holidays!
I know it’s been a long time since many of you have heard from me, so here’s the latest news.
After an exciting and productive few years living and working in the New Jersey/New York City area,
I have returned to my home north of Seattle with my beautiful new bride, Demaree, and our three dogs, to settle down for a while. I will be teaching drums and running the newly-updated Ivy House studio, in addition to working on various recording and video projects and gigging whenever possible.
Currently in the production pipeline are: the free improv CD set with the Essex Improviser’s Collective; the Gary Lee Rollins CD; the second Inquest CD,; and a package of audio and video from
studio sessions in New Jersey with Gary, Bob Ackerman, and Rick Crane and takes from the January 2010 Cecil’s gig with Bob and Francesco Beccarro. These are all behind schedule, due to the delays caused by moving, working at Demaree’s river cottage in North Carolina (after Hurricane Irene), and fixing up the house and studio here in Washington. You’ll be hearing a lot more about these projects and more in the coming weeks.
The studio is open for business and running your choice of Pro Tools, Logic, or Cubase. We have made considerable upgrades and now are running on a 32x8 Mackie board. We also are doing
high-quality HD video shooting and editing and a number of other services.
We have lots of video footage up on YouTube at www.youtube.com/fredtaylordrummer, and audio files at www.myspace.com/fredtaylordrummer and www.myspace.com/fredtaylorandinquest. We’re also on Facebook at www.facebook.com/fredtaylordrummer.
We wish you a very merry Christmas, happy Hannukah, and any other holiday you celebrate at this wonderful time of year. God bless you all.
Thanks to you all for your interest and support, and we look forward to hearing from friends old and new.
Fred, Demaree, Cinnamon, Li’l Bit and Mikey."
