We will begin work on our debut album this May with NYC recording legend Martin Bisi at his BC Studio in Gowanus, Brooklyn - to be released in July. After launching his studio in 1979 with the help of Brian Eno and Bill Laswell, Martin spent the next decade making seminal recordings with post-punk, no wave, avant-garde jazz, and early hip-hop artists like Fab Five Freddy, Afrika Bambaataa, Herbie Hancock, Material, Brian Eno, John Zorn, Arto Lindsay, The Golden Palominos, Sonic Youth, Lydia Lunch, Swans, Jim Jarmusch/John Lurie, Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Gray, Jon Spencer, etc. He went on to work with Iggy Pop, The Ramones, Maceo Parker, Bootsy Collins, Ginger Baker, and many more. We're very grateful to have this opportunity to work with Martin and excited to share our first release with everyone soon.



25 year old musician, singer, songwriter, and poet from San Diego, CA. Now based in NYC and performing as Satori Loser. Founded in late 2016, my group began to explore what is essentially a jazzy take on post-punk, and has evolved to include elements of folk, funk, soul, no wave, and chansonnier styles.

Some of my favorite artists include David Bowie, Talking Heads, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Scott Walker, Tom Waits, Jacques Brel, Edith Piaf, Frank Sinatra, Chet Baker, Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Charles Mingus, Bob Dylan, Bill Callahan, Joanna Newsom, and Cass McCombs.

The quintet features Michael Pawlowicz on lead guitar, Dave Schnug on saxophone, Mike Stanley on bass, Ben Cureton on drums, and myself on vocals and rhythm guitar.

As a writer, my most formative influences have been modernism, surrealism, and eastern philosophy. Recent work is focused on trying to create a sort of lyrical painting, and tends toward a fractured, impressionistic free verse in which logic and reason take a back seat to beauty and texture.
