I am a guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, and sound artist. The Austin Chronicle describes my music as articulate and jagged soul-mining Sturm und Drang while fans say it is urgent, dissonant, bohemian, and gothic.
I play acoustic guitar and sing, sometimes with a special guest on accordion or flute. Sometimes I play electric guitar, keyboard, or cigar box dulcimer. Occasionally I use sound collage or ritual elements in my performance.
I was recently a member of post-apocalyptic folk band Dying and Rising, as well as weird electronic duo Anonymonstrosity, both now defunct.
As a soloist, I performed at the original locations of Emo's, Cheer Up Charlie's, and Church of the Friendly Ghost. I played festivals including Woodstock on the Boston Commons (2012), Spitfest II (2012), and NMASS (2010) as well as off-SXSW showcases like Tiny Fest (2013), psychedelic neofolk (2012), and the Leisure Tourniquet Equinox Mish-Mash (2009).
I collaborated on multi-media installation Tightrope (2013), participated in Rehearsal at the Astoria (2011), and appeared in Deena Oh's exhibition Nanobangbang 8 (2011) and David DiDonato's one-man band showcase (2006). I made short musical scores for The Oracle of Ambrosia which was selected for the Experimental Response Cinema showcase at the Dallas Medianale video festival (2015), as well as Still 1 which screened at the Polari Film Festival (2013).
I am a regular guest at the Capital Zen songwriter night, and have played tributes to Syd Barrett, Harry Nilsson, and Lou Reed. I have toured in eighteen states of the United States.
