ABOUT

I play guitar and do live-looping.

I'm not going to try to label this or fit it into a specific genre. Listen to a few tracks, and if you feel like we can work together, get in touch.

If you want to contact me, just click on one of my videos, click the "watch on U 2oob" link in the lower right, and you can message me there, or look on my channel for other social media links.

Right now I'm mainly just looking for some people to collaborate with online We could send stem recordings back and forth, and maybe try using JamKazam, Jamulus or other online jamming application.

If you're local I'd also be interested in getting some people together and try to get an instrumental guitar band going in the mode of post rock instrumental bands like Russian Circles, If These Trees Could Talk, Godspeed You Black Emperor, etc.

CALENDAR

Past Events

I'll be returning to an old haunt of mine, the old Willow House building, now Luanna's Coffee and Beer for Open Mic night.

The Willow House was the first place to give me stage when I moved to Phoenix in 2001. I think the last time I played there was in 2007 or so...

I'll be premiering a couple of new pieces. Feel free to come check it out and if you're interested in doing some music together let me know.

Open mic runs from 6 to 9pm, I'll shoot for going up around 7 for a 15 minute set.
