I began my career playing drums and singing lead in high school bands. After recording various studio projects and collaborating with other musicians it was clear that music was one of my true passions. I ditched the drums to concentrate on my voice and have fronted several Midwest bands including Sativa, Little Big Man, Retroactive, The Clique, Maximus, and CRUSH, A Tribute to Bon Jovi. My voice and stage presence has earned me hundreds of gigs including sharing the stage with Puddle of Mudd, I Mother Earth, Shooting Star, and Grand Funk Railroad. Sativa was a featured artist on Perris Records Volume One as well as the Kansas City compilation Inferno Records Rock Collection Vol. 4.
Most recently I provided all the vocals for New York metal band Kyrie Ellison's release Untold Stories: The Scriptures Of Sadness. Drums tracks were provided by Jason Bittner (Flotsam and Jetsam, Toxik, and Shadows Fall) and Mark Zonder (Fates Warning, Warlord, and Chroma Key.) Guitar solos were also added from guitar virtuosos: Mike Campese and Chris Caffery (Savatage and Trans-Siberian Orchestra.)
I have been doing several session projects including a progressive metal project out of Germany called Born 2 Rule. It was quite fun and rewarding to let my inner Dave Mustaine and James Hetfield out to play for a while. Other projects include an alternative project that could be described as Cheap Trick meets Nirvana with a visit from the Smashing Pumpkins.
So, If you need an expereienced session musician, or just want to stay in touch, I want to hear from you.
Thanks for stopping by.
