Recently released is a compilation of Kate Bush covers organized by the Bush League. The track was actually a "jam" in the studio for a potential Leverage Models song that ended up being the backing for Alena Spangler of Tiny Hazard to just absolutely KILL IT on. The compilation is a benefit for Reproductive Rights.

May very well be the last appearance of the "3 Drummer" version of the band for awhile. Also last NY show for a bit for the band as the band is heading on tour (minus myself) for March/April.

I am not in this video as I am not in the band, however those are my drummings in the song. The good news is Ikillya looks like they finally found a permanent drummer. I had been helping them out for a bit on some shows and did the drums on most of their first record "Recon". Last summer I got a call in the 11th hour that they needed me to do their new album also. So it was off to Staten Island to do 2 days of drum tracking. I believe the record "Vae Victus" is out in April on Megaforce Records.

I have been lazy with updating the site. Things like life getting in the way. That being said, there are a lot of updates coming this year. New releases from Zao, Emanuel and the Fear, Leverage Models, Amateur Blonde, Ikillya to name a few. In addition, some new projects and collaborators on the horizon. As part of my late 2013 early 2014 catch up. Here is a video from last fall's Leverage Models album featuring the wonderful Sharon Van Etten. Enjoy

This friday at Music Hall Of Williamsburg, we're opening for the "not legendary as they should be" Medicine. Don't think they have played since '95. Should be a good one.

I've done improv duos, trios, quartets etc before. But never a solo show. This will all change next wed night January 9th, when I do a solo drum performance at Goodbye Blue Monday (1807 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY). Also on the bill is Jerkagram, Sun Castle and Michael Foster/Weasel Walter/Chris Pitsiokas Trio. I am on at 11:00 (or maybe a tad later). It's FREE.
