ABOUT

I am a guitarist/songwriter. Left to my own devices, I write a unique blend of surfy post-punk, which can be heard in my demo here: thebugouts.

My overall style can be best heard through the music I have on and here, but in short, my rhythm is choppy staccato and triads like early Talking Heads and XTC, and my lead parts have a strong surf influence.

I helped found and wrote the music for a band called !nvinc!ble that played in Philadelphia in the 2011-2012 time frame. Some life stuff later, I'm ready to start a new band or join and existing one.
