I was asked by the producers of Baywatch to write a song to replace the song “Good Vibrations” by The Beach Boys for this classic Baywatch montage as part of the monumental Baywatch HD Remastering effort. I was honored and a little terrified to replace such an epic song. Here’s what I came up with: “California Dream”
The original Baywatch series was shot on 35mm film, so the producers were able to go back and scan all of the original footage for all 9 seasons and digitize them in high definition. All 350 songs for the classic montages needed to be replaced. No easy task, but certainly a fun one! Many songwriters were involved and it took months to cross the finish line. I was fortunate enough to contribute 17 songs working out of my home studio. I had the pleasure of collaborating with Tariqh Akoni and Tony Sevener, from Summercamp on a few of those songs as well.
The new Karla Bonoff album “Carry Me Home” has been officially released worldwide today! It’s an honor to have been given the opportunity to contribute to this beautiful album and work with such an amazing artist. Listen: Spotify • iTunes • Amazon

I wrote this song way back when I was in a band called “Old Man“, which later evolved into the band Summercamp. Notice the Old Man sticker on my acoustic guitar, which has been there since the beginning 🙂
