SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Vocalist - Tenor, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Vocalist - Alto.
I am a seasoned composer, producer, and a pastor of worship arts. My wealth of experience in all these areas has enabled me to contribute to a variety of contemporary, classical, stage, studio and media projects.
As a self-taught musician, I like to infuse many of my eclectic influences and keen ear for melody into my varied compositions. This is often showcased in my diverse writing style and production techniques.
With experiences both on stage and in the studio, I bring a unique musical style into an array of settings. My comprehensive spectrum of musical tastes covers a wide range of musical genres.
In addition, I have also made numerous contributions in composing music for both radio and television, writing jingles and themes for a variety of shows, as well as being involved in an assortment of musical stage adaptations. These experiences include composing original scores for re-imagined stage productions of The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, The Piped Piper of Hamlin, and the debut stage production of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.
I have been sought out by baKno, an up and coming video game developer and publisher. I have worked closely with baKno to create original musical scores for many of their video games including Xplorer, Island Racer, Punk Trader, and Mahjong.
I’ve also utilized my skills for work in the studio as a session player, producer, co-writer, and arranger on several independent album projects. The ability to create just the right music for a specific project is what I find most rewarding. In the studio, I am currently working on the original score for an independent animated feature filmed entitled Project Seven (The Movie).
I have also used my songwriting, music, and production skills to the instrumental art-rock project, Velvet Symphony, which I wrote and produced the debut album – a 10-track LP entitled Counter Clockwise that is available on the iTunes store, Amazon, as well as other digital music stores.
In late 2012, I officially launched my own publishing company, Glittertown Records, an entity that now operates as my own independent publishing house. I produce and distribute music under Glittertown Records globally, including musical projects such as Hannaford Street Worship and Velvet Symphony, among others.
In 2017, I also officially launched, The Minstrel, a custom and royalty-free scoring and production house. It is there I provide original scores for films, radio, television, and commercials, as well as royalty-free scores that I have composed and have been made available to subscribers. I offer digital downloads for just about any audio situation. You can now purchase a single score or use the subscription option for you or your company to purchase unlimited scores.
