PHIL HARRIS 's website,
this studio alumnus is on a different path:
Phil combines his two passions, massage/body work
and exquisite gourmet cooking.
I never did get to eat with Phil,
but one summer we traded lessons and massage sessions.
I certainly can vouch for his being one of the two
best massage professionals I've ever had treat me.

PORTER SMITH 's website.
Porter has released his third CD "Raise" .
His second was really rather stunning original music.
He combines his vocal talents with his stand up bass chops
to produce some fascinating sounds. Odd. Recommended.

Porter also has a new video online.
