To those who already know me, welcome! To those who have no clue who I am, I'm glad you've found yourself here. I'm a musician from Austin, TX. I've played with a band called Pompeii since 2004 and released 3 records, which you can listen to on the usual streaming and download platforms like Spotify, iTunes, etc. Right now, I'm working on a new batch of songs I'm releasing under the name, Early Internet. This is the first of a slew of updates you'll hopefully see regarding songwriting, recording, and shows. Subscribe to my mailing list, so I can get you access to free shows, merch deals, and other exclusive content. That's it for now. I hope your 2016 is going great so far. Talk soon...
