ABOUT

I play in the 3 bands:

THE HELP DESK: An original band that is very versatile but rock/pop orientated (probably more "indi", though I don't like the term), we call it "Diversapop". The Help Desk was formed by myself & Erik Widmark. We write the songs and when we play live, we get some great musicians to back us up. I am mostly the lead guitarist on stage but play keyboards on stage as well. Since we are mostly a studio band, I play several instruments when recording.

HIRED GOONS
I am the drummer in Hired Goons. We are an original Ramones-style punk band, whose songs are based on Simpsons episodes. In that band, I go by the name Poochie Ramone. We are a really fun band and are looking for a new guitar player.

THE AMAZING JOHNSONS
Lastly I play in a cover band. I am the lead guitar player in this band, but I also play keyboards and sing plenty of harmonies & lead vocals. We play all cover music from the 1950's to current in any kind of popular style we feel like. We are more a bunch of friends playing for fun, but we're good enough to have fun and play gigs.

I also am more than happy to play studio sessions. I don't really care about someone's music style or their "talent level", I'm willing to contribute to anything, just to have fun and continue learning on this musical journey.
