“It was mixed by John Leonard, he did such an incredible job!,
He also put me in touch with Grammy Award Winner Hans DeKline who Mastered all three songs.
Available on iTunes , Spotify, Pandora, etc. Please go give it a listen,
I’m very proud of the whole package but I am still so excited that all of these great musicians were
willing and able to record my music! I’m planning on releasing at least one video in the next couple of months, so stay tuned!
I started the whole process two years ago. Soon after, I began Death Saddle Syndicate with John Leonard and Mike Davis Penta.
So the two projects ran concurrently. Death Saddle Syndicate is also poised for a huge year of exciting things!” JC

All I can say about Jedd’s new album is wow.
All three songs have a different style to them Jedd’s writing talent is clear in this album.
He has taken different rock genres and made them his own.
Inviting these guest musicians to fill in the sound worked beautifully giving each song a distinct edge and vibe.
This is defiantly a set of songs you want to hear on repeat!
“How did you come to play bass?When I was 13, friends of mine had a rock band and needed a bass player, so I started playing bass. Then in college, my professors told me I’d get more work if I also played upright so I started playing upright and eventually went on to get my masters in classical performance from the University of Connecticut.
What’s a lesson you’ve learned along the way?
You have to be versatile! Like an actor, you have to be able to play convincingly in many genres. Having proper gear helps.”
