ABOUT

I am a full-time professional songwriter/musician/producer/recording artist.
Currently I have written, recorded and produced 24 solo albums in my own recording studio called The Droperating Room where I write every song and perform all instruments and vocals
I occasionally offer my services as a session musician (keyboard, drums, rhythm guitar, bass, vocals) to other artists who may need a player for their recordings or for live purposes.

EQUIPMENT

The instruments I own come and go as I buy some, play them/record with them and then sell them. For my most recent album "The Droppler Effect" (released December 9, 2016) I used a Pearl Rhythm Traveler drumset, Roland RD-300NX keyboard, Carlos 6 string acoustic guitar, Fender Starcaster 6 string electric guitar, Hofner bass guitar and an Audio Technica condensor vocal microphone.
I add or subtract various pieces of equipment periodically as my mood or needs dictate.
