ABOUT

I'm a 34 year old guy who has played guitar, bass, and drums as a solo act and with bands for 15 years. Most recently I played bass for the indie rock band If The War Should End and drums for the indie/folk/Americana band The Lunar Low. Previously I recorded and played drums with the Dallas-based band Heard. I also have experience with audio engineering (self taught). Non-music related info: got a three going on fifteen year old kid, married, full time job, and all manner of ridiculousness.

Influences

Several rock based genres like indie rock/pop, dream pop, shoegaze, classic rock, mod, garage rock, new wave, surf rock, etc. Other genres include Jazz (modern, standards, some acid/free form), Blues (acoustic and electric), Tejano, Folk, bits of older country (Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash predominantly), and a mish-mosh of classical and world music. Bands of special significance are Ride, Mazzy Star, Land Of Talk, Talking Heads, Sky Larkin, Tame Impala, The Lemonheads, R.E.M., Beach House, Early Elvis Costello, Buffalo Tom, Dinosaur Jr., Teenage Fanclub. Classic rock bands like The Beatles, The Who, The Zombies, Small Faces, Jefferson Airplane, Buddy Holly and the like were big influences. Some local and Texas bands I like are El Lago, Rose Ette, Claire Morales, Ella Minnow, Tee Vee, Hearts Of Animals and Whit. Recent bands in heavy rotation on the streaming devices are Sunflower Bean, Winter, Hatchie, Angel Olsen, Charly Bliss, Japanese Breakfast, Anna Burch, Alvvays, Hop Along, and Snail Mail.
