Meeting Giorgio Moroder was so life changing that I'd like to keep this blog up for another day. We've added a lot more songs as well. Enjoy!

Meeting uber-producer / composer Giorgio Moroder at the IMS was exciting for me

I've spent the last week in Ibiza at the International Music Summit - and it was one of the most exciting weeks of my life. The IMS is a conference centered around dance music professionals. From the moment I composed my first dance record, my life has been on a wonderfully positive artistic arc. That doesn't mean it's been an easy journey - in fact I've experienced numerous tragedies, but that's just life and no life is a straight line to happiness.

The role music plays in my life is particularly rewarding. I never look at anything as just another job. On any given day a recording session can turn out like Adam Lambert's "Shady." It's a song that's on his new album Trespassing, that debuted at #1 on the Billboard Chart. Even a music conference like the IMS can potentially be Life Changing Too!
