SEEKING

Band to Join, Drums.

ABOUT

Looking for collaborators - vocalists, guitar, drums, keys, and horns.

I play experimental rock music based around guitars, electronics, and texture.

I play in Herd of Instinct and Spoke of Shadows. The HOI debut cd was released 2011 on Firepool Records and featured guest appearances by Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree), Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson), Gayle Ellett (Djam Karet), and Jerry Marotta (Peter Gabriel). Herd of Instinct has released three additional albums Conjure (2013), Manifestation (2016), and Drone Priest (2017). An ambient remix album called Hallow was released in 2018.

Spoke of Shadows released our debut cd in 2014 and follow up
"II" in 2017 on Firepool Records.
