Moses Guest “Saint Mo” at KUHT 1-21-03

Moses Guest performs their song “Saint Mo” at KUHT on 1-21-03.

Mr. Guest was very disappointed with my mix of the backing vocals on this tune. The mic that Rick was using had some problems and by the end of the tune, I thought I had got it about as good as it was going to get. Live mixing isn’t always pretty, but the tune Saint Mo is such a rambunctious piece of fun, and nicely explains what the band’s name means, that it was chosen to air on the show, warts and all.

I recently noticed that the Moses Guest catalog is on Spotify, which is a great way to explore the efforts of this band which is filled with some of my favorite people in the Houston music scene: Graham Guest, Rick Thompson, James Edwards, and Jeremy Horton

Wild Audio Interview for October and ALDI


It’s a simple formula, and it still works. Record an interview in the office, and cut the location shots over it. ALDI‘s Karla Waddleton was wonderful. It was a pleasure to work with October.

Location Sound Recordist for Red’s True Barbecue at HLSR’s World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest



The British are coming! And they want to win. Recording all over town, we made a stop at Pizzitola’s, home of Houston’s only indoor brick pit. Our first stop with the Red’s True Barbecue Team on five days of meat hooliganism. Then it was off to the HLSR World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest grounds, but first a bit of shopping. This Leed’s based restaurant chain is honestly good at what they do, which explains the Austin style lines in the English weather.

Released on Facebook, shot on a Canon c300 by the ever congenial Craig Bingham, sometimes double system, sometimes just the camera mic. He’s so nice I had my worries, but don’t underestimate him. Sound was recorded on a Sound Devices 633 with Lectrosonics wireless and an Ambient ACL-204 Lockit.

Sport Illustrated Swimsuit 2017 Simone Biles Behind the Scenes Audio

I always wondered what it’s be like to work on a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition video. It is a truly world class professional experience. The 2017 SI Swimsuit featured two 2016 Olympic Gold Medal Gymnasts, Aly Raisman and Simone Biles. On a short stop in Houston, Texas during their post Olympic tour, the SI team abandoned the beach and came to the Bayou City, which will also host the first ever VIBES by Sports Illustrated Swimsuit festival.

The BTS videos were produced and shot by the Bozzwicks with a Sony FS7 and Dog Schidt Lenses. Locations included The World Champion Centre, The Spring Texas Skate Park, Houston Zoo, NASA Johnson Space Center, and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston Cullen Sculpture Garden. Audio equipment included Sound Devices 633, Ambient ACL 204 Lockit, Sennheiser MHK 416, Countryman B6, Lectrosonics Digital Hybrid wireless, and IFB.

Mark Shannon ably mixes house for nearly all of the Texans games. The Texans eventually restrict embeds, but here’s a link list of some notable appearances:
MSG Colin D Eaton II, Clay Walker, 82nd Airborne All American Chorus, Yolanda Adams, The Libery Belles, Nancy Curtis, Tori Kelly
