Omnia front cover

Omnia, my next album of electronic music, will be released on November 1st.

It’s a deeply atmospheric work, marrying harmonic interests of slow 20th century romantic symphonic writing with modern ambient music and a bit of art rock of the early 70s.

It features spectacular guitar work from Chrys Bocast, whose Through the Airlock album is a primary influence.

The final track is solo piano.

Spiriti front cover

Spiriti, my next album of solo piano music, will be released on December 1st.

I've always been drawn to albums that are constructed as a single continuous work. Each of my piano albums have been written so that it is especially satisfying to listen from beginning to end in order. Spiriti was written even more so with that in mind.

As you become familiar with the themes, you might notice they come back again and again in different contexts as the album progresses.

This is my most personal album to date.

Outside Inside front cover

I had the opportunity to do some mix work on Wells Hanley's upcoming album, Outside Inside. It quickly became my absolute favorite piano album.

For years I've loved everything Wells has done, but this is the album I've been waiting for. It is a rare gem.

Off My Lawn front cover

Old Man Kelly is a charismatic band leader and a writer of classic timeless Americana songs. See this guy in any of his many musical combinations.

I'll sometimes play in his band The Streetsweepers, and I had the opportunity to play honkytonk music on his recent release, Off My Lawn. Just some guys playing in a basement- crazy good fun and homegrown independent music at it's finest.

Numbers League is a fantastic math game invented by my friends Ben Crenshaw and Chris Pallace.

I wrote the software and the music for the iPad app adaptation. How fun did it turn out, you ask? Very fun!
