ABOUT

I primarily play bass; I am also a singer (baritone range).

I am currently involved with a new progressive metal project, Echoes of Earth, with drummer Lee Corrado (ex-CypherSeer), guitarist Andrew Pevny (Framework, Daughter Chaos, ex-Armageddon), guitarist Alex Marucci (Visualist) and vocalist Zeno Rodrigo (ex-CypherSeer).

Prior to Echoes of Earth, I was most recently with the modern hard rock outfit Siravo. My bass work can be found on the band’s EP “Hearts & Minds” (2013) as well as the albums “Vassal” (2015) and the “The Restless & The Mad” (2018).

Before Siravo, I was in the classic rock band The Tired Starlings, the celtic rock band Cenedl, the Beatles tribute band James Eaton & The Feelgood Band, and the Christian rock group dt65.
