Taking London by storm!
I trust you’re all bundled up nice and cozy, mining for bit coins, protected from winter vortexes. Well, 2017 has been a…strange year to say the least. Between contentious Star Wars flicks, contemptuous presidential administrations and super hurricanes, it’s been nothing if not eventful.
As some of you may know, I’ll be traveling to London next week to record at the legendary Abbey Road Studios. I’m very grateful for this opportunity and will be keeping you guys abreast on my goings on!
Here are some gigs!
And here is a link for my latest record,“Pieces for Electric Guitar”. Please do check it out it’s actually kinda good. You can totally steal it but I hope you buy it.
That’s all for now folks!

It’s that time of year, when all of Southern California is on fire and New York welcomes hordes of shoppers and amateur photographers, adjusting their flashes for the 3pm dusk panoramas, alas, all without a snowflake in sight.
But Rejoice! The gigs!
-CT people, you can come see me at Integrity n’ Music in Wethersfield this Saturday the 9th from 2-3. I’ll be playing songs with the great Matt Dwonszyk on bass and Curtis Torian on drums at the legendary record store.
-Sunday the 10th will find me leading a quartet at Rue B in the East Village. I’ll be doing an awful lot of singing so bring your disposable cameras and rotten vegetables. Sebastien Ammann on piano, Timothy Norton on bass and Jesse Simpson on drums. We start at 8 and a jam session follows so bring your horns!
– On Monday the 18th I’m back at my favorite neighborhood watering hole to lead the jam session at Salzy Bar. 8-11, come bring your axes.
– And last but not least, in preparation for my much anticipated record date at Abbey Road Studios this January, I’ll be premiering my new band, (AKA London DM-ing) at IBeam in Gowanus on Friday the 22nd at 8:30pm. Sebastien Ammann on keys, Alon Benjamini on drums and Alex Tremblay on bass. There will be lots of new music a brewing. Come hang!

Oh hey, its me again. No it’s really me, not a Russian internet troll. If you don’t believe me, you can confirm my identity by following twitter page and donating to my GoFundMe so I can finance credit card scheme and install nationalist politicians I MEAN…purchase all vodka in the Ural mountains and donate to thirsty orphans. Yeah…
On Tuesday the 21st and 28th, I’m back with Carte Blanche at the Intercontinental Barclay Hotel from 6:30-9:30.
If you made it to the end of this lengthy soliloquy, congratulations! Here is a link to my new album, “Pieces for Electric Guitar”. This record was conceived, composed, tracked, mixed, mastered and produced in about a week of toiling away in my apartment. Part elegy for our current times, part meditation on post-minimal music and part joyous foray into compositional chestnuts I’ve been toying with. Please check it out and consider purchasing it if you like it.
Also, my PODCAST
Well that’s it. Hope to see some familiar faces out there.

Here is a link to my new album, “Pieces for Electric Guitar”. In early November, I got a wild hair and over the coarse of a week, wrote, recorded and produced an album of ambient, post-minimalist guitar music. Enjoy!
