I have travelled the world, worked on music soundtracks, did a lot lot lot of gigs, can play most anything a modern rock band needs, but I love to sing and write songs. I am in shape, still have hair, and typically get carded to buy cigs if I have shaved recently, despite my theoretical age (hey we're musicians, we age gracefully). I have a good knowledge of recording studios, live sound (was a soundman for 3 years in a very large rock club), I like beer, cigarettes, I don't like band-drama or pissy perfectionists... have a hard time getting along with them at practice, just quit worrying and rock it is my ideal.

11 LottoThis is my one true cover...I didn't write a word of this, but I love every single one of them and have since I was kid. Props to Camper Van Beethoven for writing the best song ever written and not giving a care wether I cover it or not.
10 SkipAnother Kieth genius project. This guy had no idea how genius his lyrics were with the concept for this song, but he is just like that. So..I figured, I would doctor it up a bit with my own point of view.
09 SlideYou'd be surprised what a bic lighter and a weird tuning can do.
08 ConquerWrote this before I ever got to Olly and met my old band. Kieth perfected it with his wisdom, but the rift is timeless and spands before and after us....and thats how we conquered the world....
07 GirlAnother one that Kieth and I wrote long long ago. Its not really about a girl. Its about our human condition.
06 ClockAn original one...written at a time of loss...all of our loss, at one point or another but in this case in a specific moment of nihilism from what was surrounding me.
05 MiraclehopeThis is a combination of a couple of different old Kallisti tunes from our street days and that man on the side of the road mumbling to himself must have a story to tell.
04 ComedownNot a drug reference. I was sitting in a tree in Olympia Washington in the park, there were lots of tweekers below me and these lyrics come to mind. I like to use it as an exuse to show off pretty guitar.
03 EclipseAlso a variation on one of my old Kallisti rifts, skipping some singy parts in favor of more time rocking out on a guitar.
02 BlueThis song was written by Kieth from my old band Kallisti but I chose to expand on it with guitar bits at the expense of his wonderful voice.
