My Music

Here's my musical biography. I may have misremembered some details.

My Soundcloud contains links to various songs I've done, either with bands or in my own home studio. In 2017, I wrote an album's worth for the RPM Challenge. The album is called Shade and Light.

I've also done a bunch of studio work for Marco Delmar at Recording Arts, cutting bass tracks for such artists as Jay Britton, Dave Alberding, Ann Blair, and Mary Shaver. I've also done tons of bass work for friends and other musical collaborators. If you've got some songs that need bass tracks, get in touch!.

I've also had fun laying some bass tracks over little drum video clips I've found, including from the incomparable El Torro Gamble and Blues Webb. I really should do more of that.

My Bands

For years, I played primarily with two bands. The U-Liners is a great roots rock and Americana band lead by Joe Uehlein, playing songs of justice, peace, the environment, and workers' rights. I have three original songs on the U-Liners two albums.

I was also the long time bass player in the Cravin' Dogs, playing on the records we did from 1996's dingus to 2017's BONE. Great bunch of rockers!

Along the way, I did an extended stint with the Billy Coulter Band playing on his 2003 eponymous CD, and his second album Dose. I played with Nancy Dougherty and Venus Rising, contributing several tracks for their records, and playing live with Nancy for several years. Nancy even included two of my original songs on her first album. I also did my duty as a Washington DC bassist, playing with The Oxymorons. Of course, I played and subbed for lots of DC Area local bands here and there.

Back in the day, I played with Georgie Jessup and Crazy Sacred Dogs with my good friends Tommy Derr and El Torro Gamble. I also played with Edge City.

In the distant past, I was in an original progrock band called Arc of Ones. A great, late-80s, early-90s original band, our one and only record is online at the previous link, produced by Crack the Sky front man John Palumbo.

Now that I'm in California, I play with a great bunch of folks in Smokehouse. Cool peeps, rocking music.
