"Invested with a quiet grace and emotional power" -- Bloomington Herald-Times

 


 

I'm a writer and musician from Indianapolis, Indiana. I have worked as a dishwasher, a barista, an IT guy and a marketing dude. Katy Perry once accused me of being a hipster.    

My first full-length LP, One Day in May, was made at San Francisco's Tiny Telephone on two marathon weekends separated by a year. It is a scrapbook of endings, beginnings, fortunes, failures, courage and humility. Check it out here!

I also play bass in the Bay Area-based cosmic-Americana band, Cazadero. I was part of their first three albums beginning in 2012.. It's hard for me to pick a favorite.

In 2002, my first year in San Francisco, I worked with Badman Recording Co. ace, Dylan Magierek, at Tim Mooney's Closer Studios. From these sessions came the "Hey Sue" b/w "Bloody Breathitt" 7". I'm still very proud of that one. Listen here

Most recently I released 4 on 10, a gatefold 10" record featuring Jason Slota (Thao & the Getdown Staydown) on drums, Jamie Riotto (John Vanderslice) on bass and Nate Cavalieri (The Sights, Saturday Looks Good To Me) on keyboards. Click here to listen. 

I currently live in Brooklyn.
