Influences

Too many to mention. All types of music/musicians. The Nine Inch Nails remix I did is just Trent Reznor on lead and backing vocals. all other NIN tracks, were removed by Trent, and added my own. (Warning: lyrics may be explicit on uploaded song)

Originally from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, looking for mgmt/AR/established working band, etc. I compose, arrange, produce, perform, any play many instruments, as well as sing. (main instrument is lead guitar) My original music ranges from top 40 hits, R&B/Funk,Techno,Jazz/Fusion instrumentals, to plain blues, soul, rock, and country music. I have 40 years experience with all styles of music, have an offer from a major record company, (Loud 'N Proud Records) and formed my own band, Gang Of Gain, a guitar/bass/drums trio (which I eventually took it upon myself to play all the instruments) I also have road-ready gear, and various music studio/stage production, skills and equipment.

I've had 3 major label deals in my lifetime (SONY, Interscope, and Millionaire Records/ATCO) I am working with two major record labels currently, finishing up some guitar-oriented instrumentals which they were looking to showcase with. I also have a few more commercial Funk/Rock/R&B vocal songs I'm working on, as well as mixing/producing some local artists and a major motion picture music scoring opportunity recently. I also have various multi-media skills and design websites/apps/software, and music production equipment.

Also pursuing some music equipment endorsement deals is also in the works (recently endorsed with Planet Waves/D'Addario) I have performed/recorded with Prince, Tina Turner, Nine Inch Nails, Billy Cobham, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Hall & Oates, Janet Jackson, among many others. I also produced/performed/recorded the first major label rap group from Iowa, "Soldiers 'N Command, in 1991.
