My Bands and Music

I've had the luck and pleasure of playing and recording with many bands, countless musicians, and putting out a few albums of my own.  While this isn't the complete list of everything I've recorded, it's certainly the projects I've been most dedicated to.  Here are my 4 main albums I helped write and produce.

"You sound like..."

The inevitable phrase a musician hears over and over again.  I used to shun it, now I embrace it.  It's simply how humans understand things, through comparison.  But rather than fill in the blanks for you, I'll simply give you a list of artists that I've enjoyed covering or just listening to (in no particular order other than how my memory sorts it).
