Omnia front cover

Omnia, the new Larkenlyre album, was released November 1st- listen or order here.

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.

Haunting themes appear many times in different contexts as a spiritual journey unfolds.

This is my most intimate and 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!
