Another Year is Upon Us 

like a lot of musicians, the wind got knocked out of me in 2020. 

I had to wholly redefine who i was and how to make a sustainiable income for myself and my family. 

This has led to an extended hiatus, and i have had a hard time shaking the dust off. 

Im still playing and creating songs in my head, but i have yet to really dedicate any time to actually writing something start to finish since all this began in the spring of 2020.

i havent forgotten about you, and i appreciate the messages, downloads, and purchases more than you'll ever know. Living a bit more remote these days since leaving NYC, but I feel the longing for what i used to do and the music i created. 

i want to create again, i want to sing again, i want to feel the hum of an amplifier though a PA.

somehow its 2022 

Hey there .... long time no ..... anything 

The Covid 19 Global Pandemic took its toll on so many of us.

Artists who released albums with the hopes of touring and / or playing shows cast to the wayside for the better part of two years.

Within that pause I became a father & relocated myself and my family from Brooklyn to rural NorthEastern Pennsylvania to be as far from harms way as possible.

It has been a struggle to readjust and find the time / space / motivation to work on a craft whose industry was all but halted in the area of the country where we live, but I am now feeling that motivation and desire once again.

I don't know where it will lead or what will become of it in the world that has absolutely transitioned into something new with regards to gigs and performing, but I want you to know that I haven't forgotten you, and I'm hoping to return to the stage this year. 


March 2021 

I recently got to chat with Jason Bemis Lawrence (Jesse Marchant, Balthrop Alabama, The Building, Dean & Britta) on his Wonderful 'Before The Stream' Podcast all about one of my favorite albums, The Afghan Whigs Gentlemen.

We discussed the album at length as well as how that translated to my own creative process.

Happy New Year  

Well.... that was 2020.... hope you all survived OK. Looking forward to a new year, a new president, a new climate, a reliable vaccine, and a return to being able to gather safely and share music.

July through Covid Whenever :(  

Like a lot of you, things have been strange.

It has been challenging to find the best way to navigate my way though all of this chaos we are living in.

A lot to look forword to on the horizon. Ive been writing and playing and making plans to build a studio.

Im sorry the news has been slow, but I think we can all relate.

I hope all of you and all of your families are well. 


With so much going on in the world right now, it's hard to stay focused on the positive. I want to thank you all for continuing to support and encourage musicians like me during this unsettling time. I believe we are better than what we are seeing, and I hope we can all make changes in our lives to keep injustices at bay.

Im taking some time to teach myself logic so that it will be easier to have music available to you more frequently, I've always been frustrated and intimidated by DAW programs, but I'm learning to conquer that for the sake of creativity.

Who knows when studios, venues, halls etc will be open again to share music in a public and personal setting.

Maybe for the time being online exchanges is all we will have.


Deeply touched and encouraged by all your generosities through this odd time in our history.

Those of you who have donated or adjusted the prices on your Bandcamp purchases have assisted with keeping me and my family fed and safe. 

I'm glad you're loving the record, I'm really proud of it.

We're all in this together.

Release month !

Ive uploaded the EP to my BandCamp and upon purchase you'll receive an immediate download of the track Pedestal

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, this release will be DIGITAL ONLY and there will not be any record release shows or live performances 

This is not the world we want, but its the world we are currently navigating.

May you all stay healthy


My next release, The Bare EP, will arrive to the world April 17th via End Up Records

This EP is a collection of songs I recorded as demos in July on my phone. They were initially just intended to be sent to the band that was to be accompanying me at my show in Austin Tx in August, but seemed to take on a life of their own.

I started to really enjoy the stripped down sound that was achieved, and it felt like the lyrical content truly benefitted from the spotlight. 

like taking a step back from a glossier studio production could actually be a step forward.

Im excited for you to hear it.

While we wait for winters arrival I've been going over demos and deciding on the tracklist for the next record.
