ABOUT

Hi, my name is Neil & I am a multi-instrumentalist, recordist, & solo-artist on an independent label in Hollywood, Records Ad Nauseam. My main project is called The Sixth Son; I self-produced my first EP in my bedroom, & for my full-length album - soon to be released on Ad Nauseam - I have upgraded much of my recording equipment & built up a front-to-back-end, pro-grade project recording studio in a house in the foothill outskirts of Los Angeles.

I am currently on a waiting list for a studio space in Eagle Rock, but in the meantime I am offering my services as a producer, engineer, & session musician for your recording project.

I am also available for gigs. I have been seriously studying music since age four, & I have been playing professionally since age seventeen. At this point, I have performed just about every kind of gig there is to play - solo & with bands - from televised events, to support for performance art & dancers, to roadhouse dive bars, to grocery-store fundraisers, to local bohemian haunts, to house-shows, to steaming-packed high-school gymnasiums, to arthouses & underground clubs across North America & Europe, to Los Angeles theatres & ampitheatres.

I played everything on my first release & I am doing the same for my high-fidelity LP, but I would be happy to speak with fellow artists who would seem to have something unique to offer to a live-band scenario. thanks for reading & happy jamming *
