Biography

Born and raised in Woodstock, NY ... drifted and landed in LA .. toured Europe and the UK in 2008/2009...
Influences include David Gray, Ray Lamontagne, Wilco, Ryan Adams, Radiohead, Floyd, Dylan, etc ... from acoustic to electro to rock ...

I am driven by the power of melody and the art of music, unique to each individual playing and listening ... it's truly a universal experience. Currently I am also capitalizing on my extensive catalog of music in the tv/film licensing business, with a couple agencies in LA placing my songs for various usages.

Currently promoting my LP's "Line Drawings", "Beside The Rio Grande", an electro-tinged record called "Black Atlas" , an stripped-down acoustic record due this summer, and my side-project Thief & Normandie's first LP entitled "November 1980"
