Taste Cherrytree Cola and Drink the Music (TM)

When I first moved to Michigan as a kid, my folks would take my sister and me to a place called Miller's Ice Cream in Okemos. Thanks to a schoolmate and son of my dad's work colleague who'd always order the same, I learned to ask for a ginger ale float. It was always delicious.

Martin's Blog Entry About the Recording of "A Simple Motion" by t.A.T.u.

About 10 years ago, I invited my close friend Ramiro Belgardt to play his cello on a song I'd arranged and produced with another great friend Robert Orton.  Ramiro and I grew up together in East Lansing, Michigan where he used to come over to my house to rehearse in a string quartet with my sister.
