Steve's house and studio are no more, victims of the Camp Fire.

Steve's been my drummer for about seven years, and four years ago he relocated to Paradise, where we've been practicing and recording for a weekend almost every month.

Most of these are original songs written (mostly) by Glenn Diamond and Tom Shellenberger, when we had a group in the 1980s ... our most recent album also includes some possibly-familiar cover songs. The last three albums listed are "archival" recordings from back then.

You can check out our "theme song" (along with lyrics and pictures) at YouTube:
The Children of Paradise

Albums available for preview/download at CD Baby:

Visions of Paradise Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1185030.jpg

Recent recording made in Steve's garage studio, with myself on guitar & vocals, Magalia resident Trevor Lloyd on violin, and Steve on drums & vocals. Some original songs by myself, Glenn and Tom plus some covers. (Trevorís house survived the fire!)

The Children of Paradise: Live Songs Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1230072.jpg

The band name as well as the song title. These were recorded at various times at the (old location of) Freight & Salvage and a couple of other local venues (hence varying recording quality!). Original & public domain songs.
