I am a Seattler

After 14 years of big city livin’ it was time to part ways and give the opposite coast a try.  I will continue touring with darwin deez and field mouse while looking for new ventures here in the greater Seattle area.  Sad to leave such amazing friends, brothers and musical projects behind but excited for what the future holds.  In the meantime, here’s a taping of Gemma’s “Eucalyptus” from a few months back:

PS: Deez went on a month long, self booked DIY house/basement tour around the US and it was insanely fun.  Played a ton of new songs, met endless cool people and even scooped up a young man (Eric) in Boston who offered to film our travels for two weeks.  We will have a tour documentary in the end!  I hope he filmed my good side (bottom right foot)

End of the Year Wrap-up!

It’s been a busy fall for this guy (me).  I’ve been bad keeping up with posts but we all knew that was going to be a virtual certainty.  That said here’s a buzzfeed-friendly list of updates:

  • -Field Mouse’s sophomore album “Episodic” release on Topshelf records.  Listen here.
  • -Upon release we joined Cymbals Eat Guitars on a 4-week US tour, and shortly after supported The Good Life on a 3-week east coast/mid west jaunt (both of which were delightful)
  • -Shapes in Calgary put out a beautiful EP “Happy Now” that you can hear here.
  • -And finally, Field Mouse recorded a (then live) Audiotree session that came out swell.  Smash that subscribe button below:

 

 

Here’s to an even better 2017!  May The Orange One have pity on us all

Another new and exciting  premiere from my dear friends and brilliant song writers Gary Atturio and Alyssa Ciorciari aka Shapes in Calgary.  Really love how this track came out.  Recorded at Studio G in Greenpoint, Brooklyn with a simple kit (no toms and a banged up trashy snare).  Listen HERE

Pleased as a peach to announce the release of our record “Episodic” out August 5th on Topshelf Records.  In preparation for the album both NPR and Spin featured two tracks coupled with some kind words.

We’ll be heading out in September on a 6-week in support of the album but I’ll save that for a future post.

Be safe out there, guys!

Laser Background US Tour

Very excited to be leaving for a 4-week tour with Philly’s own Laser Background in support of their latest release “Correct”.  Although I did not play on the record I’ve working hard on doing the album justice in a live setting with the help of my SPD-S and some crafty stem editing.  The album is streaming here now:

Hello World!

My website is LIVE.  These are exciting times.  My hope is to keep this section updated with content I’ve made, stuff I like, or (best case) a combination of both.  Big shout out to Iris Z for making my webpage a reality.

Check out the music video for “Believers”, the single on the upcoming Gurus album Unconditional Surrender, being released May 6th.  I had the pleasure of playing kit on the recording as well as a wide variety of aux percussion, industrial buckets and trashy metals to get some really hypnotic sounds.  I’m very pleased with how the album came out.  And they’re dear friends.
