MartoniousTunes Records

Here is where you will find information on my new label “MartoniousTunes”

I have decided to start a digital distribution record label, releasing music that means something to me, songs from various artists I have produced who’s singles I think deserve to be heard. The first release is Darcel Wilson’s song “Choose Happy” featuring Michael Ruff. Drop date, June 8th 2018.

The second single on my record label Martonious Tunes Records dropped along with the New Years Eve ball in Times Square 2019.


No more 9 to 5, 
No more boss to please, 
No more bills to pay, 
No more books to keep, 
No more pickup clubs
No more one night stands
No more bitchy chicks 
No more loser dudes
Moving to paradise
Gotta get a permanent tan
Now I’m living the life
Never going back again.

The third drop on MartoniousTunes, “Free Love”. A song written by my old songwriting partner and bandmember back in the 80’s, Dennis O’Donnell. Dennis played me this song on an acoustic guitar in January 2019 and I knew it had to be heard. We commandeered our old keyboard player Derek Bergmann (who also wrote “I have To Get Away”) and bass player Kerry Morris from our 80’s band “The Campaign”. I Found a great organ player Miles Hancock in Miami and three backing vocalists from New Orleans led by Raven Raquel to complete the piece.

Drop #4. “Why Does The Eagle Fly Alone” by Michael Umphrey. I met Michael in the early 80’s. He was recording demos with a real hero of mine, Michel Columbier. Just a wonderful French composer/arranger/producer. At this point in my career I had stopped playing on demos but the chance to work in any capacity with Michel I was doing. I always loved this song. Found Michael on FB and asked if I could produce it. Here is the result of a long process and a real labor of love.
