Bio

I've been a musician for 27 years. My main instrument is the guitar, both electric and acoustic as well as guitar synthesizer which means i can play virtually any instrument known to man. I also can play keyboards as well as bass, harmonica, mandolin, ukulele, tenor and soprano guitar, and other stringed instruments. I've played literally all styles form jazz to punk to blues. I've recorded over forty 90 minute cassettes and 20 full length CD's of my own music in my home studio over the past 25 years. I have recorded several different styles of music this way including fusion, rock, reggae, metal, electronic, jazz and blues.

Recordings


"1995" - rock/metal/experimental

Heavily influenced by Sonic Youth and Band of Susans, this CD is a sonic overload of feedback, overtones, resonation and other living sounds created by guitars and amplifiers cranked up too loud. Most of these songs were recorded with a single mic about 4 inches from a 1948 tube amp with massive baffling to keep the sound from disturbing my neighbor in the next room. Most of teh drums were recorded by hand by tapping the drum pads on my trusty Alesis HR 16 drum machine. This was a tediouos operation because each drum had to be recorded separately on each track of my Fostex analog 8 track tape machine. I fully intended to flesh out this one to a ful 90 minutes like allof my cassettes but I only finished one side.
