SONG: Tanwood Drice (What Forever Means)

Tanwood Drive (What Forever Means) by George Zhen “There’s more to living than just bring aliveIt’s the summer sun lighting up Tanwood Drive…” I rarely do this kind of song. But I had too. See, my in-laws were reaching their 60th wedding anniversary and everyone in the family was writing these nice memory letters and…


VIDEO BLOG: The Accessible Studio Tour

I’m excited to bring you my first ever video blog. I figured I’d start out by giving you a tour of my home studio, complete with a bit of an explanation about how I get around using various assistive technologies like screen magnifiers and the like. Let me know what you think….


OFFICIAL VIDEO: “In Transit”

My dear friend Rick Myers, who was instrumental in working with and managing my first real band, Some People’s Children back ion the 80’s, has directed a video for the title track of my album, “In Transit”. I think it is pretty cool. Rick, of course, can do a much better job describing the process…


Shutterbugs and Old Birds

Creatively, one can find inspiration in many forms. The muse is fleeting and unpredictable. When I was putting together the first tracks for the album that would eventually be entitled “In Transit”  back in 2009, there was no thematic thread to pull on. This runs in stark contrast to my previous release, “Dust of the…


On Final With “In Transit”

5I figure it’s about time for me to write a bit about this album thing I am working on. Let’s face it – I’m always working on an album. Sometimes it is in the forefront of my freespace, other times it sits dormant for a month or two. I’m always composing, either way. I’m not…


In 512 Megabytes of Loving Memory

I know it’s just an old computer. But understand that to me, my computer is my gateway to the world, a palette for creativity and something of a constant companion. This old girl, “Bulldog” was her name, was built for me by a friend nearly 10 years ago. She was a 1.3 Gigahertz Athlon (sorry,…


SONG: Digital Oxide

“We’re dumber than diesel, still trying to appease you. Stil trying to make it right…” I remember my teenage years pretty vividly. They were confusing, invigorating, intoxicating and tinged with enough daring-do to make me wonder how I lived through it. I mean, we did some stupid-ass shit. When you’re at that age, you feel…


SONG: Winter

Someone once told me that all songs are either about love or death. Ok, I’ll take that. It applies to me to some degree, as my writing as drifted across both of these subjects. Sometimes, the idea isn’t obvious as I really like to bury things in metaphor. It is a challenge I like to…


VIDEO: The American Pixel Part 2

I really never planned on this song or video. I especially didn’t plan on it being a part of the “Dust of the American Pixel” release. But here we are, a month from the official release of my long awaited, long worked on epic work of self-indulgence, and this video is now an integral part…


SONG: Melanoma

As far back as I can remember, music has been a savior of sorts. When I had troubles as a kid, I could crank up the stereo and cast my fears and doubts off into a universe of expression channeled through bands like Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin. Later, as I began to play and…
