COVID is the worst. Boston musicians are the best. A bunch of folks in the Boston scene came together and put out three volumes of experimental and progressive music whose proceeds go to supporting local communities in crisis. A track from an upcoming release by myself and Zak King is on Volume 1, honored to be included among all these incredible artists, so donate if you can and be cool to each other out there!
THE BIG FLATTENING, VOL. 1 on Bandcamp
The newest album by drummer Zak King and myself on baritone and electric guitar is finally released! Zak and I have been jamming as a duo for years and for me, this record documents the joy and excitement we feel by spontaneously creating with one another. Each song stems from one or two measures we wrote together and the rest is improvised from there. Punk, post-rock, jazz-punk, and free music are all at play here. Hope you dig it as much as we do.

I'm thrilled to be a part of this year's winter SoundBody series at 3S Artspace in Portsmouth. It's a series founded by Circulus Arts Collective and combines music, visual art, and yoga. For my upcoming performance on Sunday, January 20, I'll be playing original music with Eric Klaxton on keyboards and a live Yoga Nidra will be given by yogi Karyn Tower.
If you're looking to start your year off on a mindful and positive note, this is the show for you. Tickets are $30, $27 for members, and $15 for college students with a valid school ID. There are also two sessions on Sunday, at 1:00 and at 4:00. For more info and to secure a spot, check out the 3S event page here.

Exciting news! Today I'm releasing "Elegy," an album of my original compositions for guitar and effects! For fans of minimalist, ambient, classical, and even avant-garde music, this album draws influence from those genres and more. It also features a series of paintings I made for each song as well!
