ABOUT

Singer/songwriter and 20-year rock pianist. Crack lyricist/melodist and homemade pop producer extraordinaire, formerly of obscure 00s group the Pozniaks (favorably reviewed by Robert Christgau) and currently moonlighting in punk-pop outfit Hot Lil Hands. Examples of work I've produced, played and written for are available at jamragrecords. and s:///jamrag-records -- hope you like what you hear.

Currently at work on a pop-soul project of my songs, for which I need talented, soulful, slightly crazy musicians willing to rehearse and play out (and tour, hopefully). Also looking for studio connections -- 2014's goal is an album of this material. However, I've been recording at home all century and have access to various programs.

I'm also willing to work with anybody on their respective project if you think we'd see eye to eye, and I bet we would. If you're a dabbler I can help make budgetless home recordings; if you're further along I can be an aid to your vision as a pianist, lyricist, writer, visionary, etc.

Hit me up, we'll see what magic we can generate
