Altered Moods consists of Jerry Axson, Hal Axson, and Lisa Brillinger. First formed in the early eighties our only goal
was to write, perform, and record original music, which we did with great focus and
determination. This resulted in a tight pop rock band with a catalog of fairly
decent songs that caught the ear of Tom Lipsky at CMC Productions.
We soon found ourselves recording at CMC in Zebulon, NC where
three sessions gave Tom the material he needed to shop around
going as far up the chain as Geffen Records. The songs were
deemed great and a power trio with a female drummer was
very interesting but the lack of road experience made the
band a hard sell and labels passed.
Over the past thirty years Altered Moods has
regrouped and fallen away several times never losing
the core friendship or the ability to create good music.
Beyond that there is a comfort in working together
that you can’t put a price tag on and there is also a
tremendous trust in allowing Jerry Axson to compose
and write a large portion of the songs that have been
generated by the band.
This new turn sees the band getting back together in 2018 to
record at Lonesome Dog Studio, a home studio Jerry built that
allows him to write, record, and produce. Here there is no
clock and no master plan just three musicians and
plenty of opportunity for everyone to bring something to the table. A chance to mix things up, Hal is writing songs and playing both rhythm and lead guitar which has brought out a different sound and some new and different music.
We’ll keep this web page updated as our project moves along although no one is in any hurry, we just want to record the best songs we can together so stay tuned…
