I grew up in the Pacific Northwest in the 80s (pre-cell phone era) with plenty of time to stay inside and learn to play music. If I had grown up today I would be a far less talented and much more distracted individual. Luckily, out of necessity/boredom, I started banging on pots and pans around 7 years old which started me on my musical path with a BANG! In high school, my first TASCAM 4-track recorder made it possible for me to create entire songs. After moving to Las Vegas I began writing songs and recording in a more "serious" way. I was selected by CMJ Magazine and Coca-Cola as one of the Top 50 Unsigned Songwriters in America, along with my group The UTMoST getting nominated for an SCMA (Southern California Music Award). I have written music for Sony Pictures and recorded an EP called "Give It To Me" with former Savage Garden founder Daniel Jones. Below are a few samples of my work at work:
"Baby You Don't Know" was chosen for an excellent short film out of Australia called 'Frankie on the Fritz'
I've had music featured in the TV show Charmed.
My song "Death On The Dance Floor" was included in the first ever documentary made about Stand Up Paddleboarding, 'That First Glide'
Sebastian Bach got drunk, got up on stage and wanted to sing a song with us! Hilarity ensues...
