ABOUT

I'm a singer songwriter that plays piano, and clarinet from Chicago that recently relocated to LA. I'm in the process of recording an EP after releasing a full length album at the end of 2008. 4 of the songs from my first album were licensed for national commercial spots, not that that means much, but it's hopefully a sign that there's hope for more successes along the way. I'm trying to take what I've learned from recording that album into my second album but making it a bit lighter. A bit more fun, and well, hopefully a bit more enjoyable. I've lived in LA for about 8 months now, and have played shows at the viper room, cranes, and bar lubitsch as a solo act. I'm looking for other musicians to form a band that are up for playing venues like this and can commit to rehearsals and can have a good time. Mostly looking for people that can sing backup as well as play their instrument. Harmonies are delicious.
