“Born May 30th, 1984 in Caribou, Maine. I play euphonium, guitar, bass, minimal drums, keys, and whatever touches the hands. The performing arts- film, trades, and musical projects fill my interests and the need to understand the human condition drive my insanity. I write whatever comes to mind and play where time and money permits me too.
Main influences are Jeff Buckley, Jeff Tweedy, Billy Corgan, The Pixies, Radiohead, Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, and Sufjan Stevens.
The first collection of songs was published in 2003 under the short lived moniker, Death Rawk Boy for the self-produced label; Five Feet Recordings, Ltd.
After honing skills in home recording and numerous open-eared experiences I’m still trying to figure out why I’m driven to write, record, and perform music.”
