He’s a little bit quirky in his vocal and lyric approach.
A DIY, he sings, plays sax, guitar, bass guitar, keyboard, writes and produces all his music.
The music for the most part grooves a long, no clever arranging and not many engineering pyrotechnics.
Influenced by Leonard Cohen, Buster Poindexter, Nick Cave, Frank Zappa, BB King, Tom Waits, Mose Allison, and Lou Reed. We would have to say that Todd Rundgren, Muddy Waters, and a lot of 70’s rock bands had an influence.
Released over 40 songs since 2005, most recently a 13 song album, One Time, released in November 2017.
Rock, Jazz, Blues, Chill, and Acoustic elements make it interesting. Keeping a sense of humor without being a comedian. It’s different, not in the mainstream.
Played in SoCal Rock and Blues bands. Recorded as sideman on projects. Been releasing digital singles and an album since 05, A DIY, writing and recording all his material, playing most of the instruments. Sax, vocal, guitar, keyboard, bass, and programming
Scored short films Prop 105 and Milton and Me. Songs placed in Search Engines, 40 Sundays, and The Ritual. Appeared in HipHop Hijack video from VITAL MC.
