BandAmericanaFolk

Biography

Recorded my first album on cassette with two boomboxes, an electric guitar, a skateboard and a tennis racket when I was 12 years old. Kept four-tracking through my twenties, played in local No-Wave/Punk/Pop/Experimental bands in Boston through the mid to late 90's. Moved to New London, made some puppets, had a nervous breakdown, quit music, went to Art school, studied Animation. Soon after, charted a solo course and moved to Los Angeles, involving friends along the way as revolving members in my musical menagerie. Met Beck over breakfast in Silverlake, racked up a lot of debt, burned bridges, got married, went to Recording School, twiddled knobs and wrestled with digital snakes. Currently losing my mind recording the follow-up CD to "This Isn't Goodbye". Yes, indeed. Favorite odd job: Toothpaste factory/cardboard box assembler.
