passionate ABOUT AUDIO Audio has been a constant in my life. From listening to my favorite bands as a kid, to recording my own music to this day, music has been there for me. In 2012, I had an opportunity to branch out from my music background to get involved with the sound of the film world. Since then, I have divided my time between the two domains.

MY STORY EXPANDING BY SHRINKING My latest endeavor inspired me to combine my two audio spheres. While working on the post production audio of the film “Those We Leave Behind”, we needed some background music for a party scene. Instead of looking for royalty free music on the internet, I decided I should create my own songs for the project. My past musical ventures have been with my bands, ColonBlow and Samuel Jack Tea, but these songs didn’t have the “sound” of these bands. So with that in mind, I decided to try my hand at a solo project. This is neither the beginning of the end for my bands, nor the end of the beginning of my solo music. It’s just something different for this period of my life.

“2 Months” is an introspective song about knowing that your time in life is finite. I was inspired to finish it quickly, after talking to a gentleman who wanted to hire our cover band for his 90th birthday party. I had called him in December 2020, to see if he still wanted to have us at his party in February. With Covid-19 continuing to run rampant, it was decided that it would not be smart to have us play at a party for him. However, it was also during that phone call, that he informed me he had lung cancer, and he wasn’t sure if he was going to make it to his birthday. That devastating news made me wonder what it would be like to receive that kind of diagnosis. “2 Months” is my philosophical thoughts on the subject. After speaking to my new older friend several times since that first call in December, he was still in good spirts and grateful to have lived what he considered a long and happy life. And though there was no live band to help him celebrate his milestone, it is my hope that he appreciated this tribute song in his honor.
“What Do You Say” is about how I felt when visiting my step-father in the hospital, knowing he didn’t have much time left. Everything I could think to talk about seemed really shallow, but I didn’t know what else I could say. In the end, I realized that it didn’t matter if I said anything. What mattered was just being there. Being present.
“I Thought I Saw You Today” is about when I was waiting at a stoplight, a pickup truck pulled up beside me, and the driver looked just like my older brother, who had died 4 years earlier in a motorcycle accident. Like most moments in my life, meaningful things hit me at different times. It’s usually the smallest of things that trigger the thoughts that flood my mind when I least expect it.
A punk spin on a cartoon classic, “Put One Foot In Front Of The Other” revs up the song that originally appeared in “Santa Clause is Coming to Town”, this version gets the Winter Warlock walking out the door faster than he could ever imagine!
