I do all sorts of crazy stuff, but primarily, I'm a singer/songwriter. Here are some projects I've been involved in:
Burbank International / http://www.myspace.com/burbankinternational
Business 80 / http://www.myspace.com/business80
The Luxury Tax / http://www.myspace.com/theluxurytax
Anderson Congress / http://www.myspace.com/andersoncongress
Burbank International's "City of Burbank", reviewed in the June issue of West Coast Performer
"Inspired by frontman, H.A. Eugeneâ??s love of airports, Burbank Internationalâ??s sound is as eclectic and multidimensional as an airport itself. With their debut album, City of Burbank, the San Francisco-based rock band manages to create something more than an album, rather they release an emotive and often humorous collection of unique experiences."

The Deli Magazine Album Review: City Of Burbank
"H. A. Eugene, the singer-songwriter that is Burbank International, draws on the emotions from the dark side of Will Oldham, the complex melodies of Sufjan Stevens and the strange yet simple compositions of Mark Oliver Everett."

Mark Oliver Everett, Lou Reed, The KLF, The Pet Shop Boys, Meat Beat Manifesto.
