I am all about bringing back the foundation of music. The classic artists, and bringing it to the modern day front. I am a songwriter and cover artist that loves to perform. Music is a powerful tool and one of vast influence.

Biography

I grew up in a small town outside of Chicago; made my rounds through a few bands, and took them to the top. My first band, Like A Super Hero, was a pop-punk/alternative band that made it to the top 5 bands in Chicago for warped tour. After leaving that band i started a new project called We Play In Traffic. We wrote an album and toured with the project that focused on the concept that, "you are not alone." It was a concept album based on teen angst and we spoke out to all the cities we visited about inspiration. After coming in contact with John Roecker (Live Freaky Die Freaky! and Green Day's Heart Like A Hand Grenade), he inspired me to move out to Los Angeles to pursue music. Among various projects with John Roecker, I am also working with Aimee Allen, and Tim Armstrong (Rancid/Transplants).

Lyrics

Life On Mars

Written By: David Bowie

It's a god-awful small affair
To the girl with the mousy hair
But her mummy is yelling "No"
And her daddy has told her to go
But her friend is nowhere to be seen
Now she walks through her sunken dream
To the seat with the clearest view
And she's hooked to the silver screen
But the film is a saddening bore
'Cause she's lived it ten times or more
She could spit in the eyes of fools
As they ask her to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

It's on Amerika's tortured brow
That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
Now the workers have struck for fame
'Cause Lennon's on sale again
See the mice in their million hordes
From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads
Rule Britannia is out of bounds
To my mother, my dog, and clowns
But the film is a saddening bore
'Cause I wrote it ten times or more
It's about to be writ again
As I ask you to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?
