  • Orissa - Blue Communion Video

    While I am not IN this video (filmed before my involvement in the band) I did "re-record" the drums for the version of the song contained IN the video. So that is me playing, but you can't SEE me playing. 

  • Leverage Models - WHITES out today

    Leverage Models - WHITES out today

    The new Leverage Models album "Whites" is out today. Proud of this one finally seeing the light of day as most of my parts were recorded about 4 years ago. It is available digitally in all of the usual places. But more importantly 50% of the profits from the album are going to the Southern Poverty Law Center. So we STRONGLY encourage picking it up at the bandcamp site. Also a limited run of Cassettes are available (currently the only physical version of the album).

     

  • Leverage Models - Senators Video

    This was given a "sort-of" premiere by the Village Voice a few years ago. But with the album coming out in a week or so we are bringing attention to it again. Butoh dancers and roto toms, how can you go wrong.

  • Orissa - Verse V video

    Been playing with Orissa for almost a year now. The whole thing started with me going into the studio with mastermind Dave Dodini to retrack drums for two songs from the band's album Resurrection. He wanted slightly different performances for the two songs he was making videos for. This is the first one. 

  • New EP out next week

    Out next week 2/16/18 but available now on Bandcamp is an ep of 60's-era influenced French Pop by Mr. Bijou that I had the pleasure of playing drums on a couple of tracks.  Check it.

  • Zao Beer in Revolver's top 10 "metal beers" of 2017

    Zao Beer in Revolver's top 10 "metal beers" of 2017

    Really proud of this one. The beer that Zao did in conjunction with Against The Grain Brewery out of KY was just named by Revolver as one of the best "Metal Band Beers" of 2017. It was a blast to make and honestly, I hope they do it again in wider distribution, because there really isn't much out there like it.

    Check out the list at Revolver
