First Year on Earth ~ This is my baby, a collaboration with a few of my good friends making the best possible music we can.  Style wise it can best be described as a mix between rootsy folk and indie rock, along with definite soulful influences.  Full length album coming very soon! Our EP, along with other performance clips are available on our website.

 

Erin Ivey ~ In my opinion she is one of the best singer/songwriters I have ever heard, and just a fantastic beautiful soul.  I have the privilege of playing in her new group, featuring a collaboration of songs written by her and the amazing guitarist/songwriter Chuck Pinnell.  Album in the works very soon.

 

John Mills Times Ten ~ Ten piece jazz ensemble that I play in with a modern aesthetic.  Heavily influenced by fusion groups such as Weather Report, along with brazilian music and funk, it features all original compositions by my former composition professor John Mills and some of Austin's finest musicians.  It is truly a pleasure to be a part of this group.

 

Angelo Lembesis ~ One of my favorite piano players in town, and a great friend.  It's always a pleasure to create music with him.  Check him out.
