Album Notes
Dark Descent was recorded for and featured in the season 4 finale of the hit TV show, The Mentalist.
Reviews from fans:
“I'm a big fan of Gretsch guitars, and your tone and playing technique are impeccable.”
“Wow, dude, you really caught the vibe of Wicked Game. Suhweeet.”
“Congratulations on your music for The Mentalist. Listened to the whole thing tonight and you are "Da Man"! SPOT ON!”

On a Saturday morning I received a request from one of the producers of The Mentalist to write a cue for the opening scene of the episode airing the following Thursday night (CBS at 10:00). They were using the song Wicked Game, by Chris Isaak, but were having problems negotiating the licensing and weren't sure if they'd be able to use it. So they asked me to write something with a similar feel and same tempo to replace it if need be. They needed a 5 minute cue by Monday morning and also a 40 second cue for a resolution scene in the same setting later in the show. I had a gig Saturday night, but other than that, I cleared my calendar and was able to deliver the two cues by 4:00 AM Monday. They liked what I did and were going to use both cues, but by noon Monday the Chris Isaak tune cleared...dang it! They did however edit down Dark Descent and used it in the later scene.
