My Musical Projects

Most of the websites listed here have FREE DOWNLOADABLE  FILES that feature my bass playing, as well as the playing of many other KICK-ASS musicians you will definitely enjoy! If you like the material, show some support by buying the material we all worked so hard to produce. Also, to see the cool cover art done for these mostly-still-available or brand new released CD's

(SUCH AS the now-available PAPERBAG: AIRWAVE RITUALS CD),

please go to my discography page.

New Woody Moran songs I played on!

A great songwriter, singer/guitarist and friend of mine, Woody Moran, has just released his newest record,
called "Tu-Toned Stranger" and it's a great album.
Very soulful, very captivating and catchy music, with a bit of Springsteen and A bit of Steely Dan influence. 
I also had the pleasure of contributing bass parts to two of the songs, "Walking on a Saturday Night" and "Sombrero Fallout." 
You can download and hear them here:http://www.woodymoran.com/songs

Band Projects

I usually play bass for several bands at once, and I'll do recording sessions and live gigs with others from time to time. 

I've been on several albums, and I have some recording and production credits which are posted on my Resume & Credits page..

Band projects are :

- alternative rock with a pop-funk yet progressive edge

 - always challenging improvised music


 

- progressive but heavy sort of metal-jazz


 

- aggressively punk & power pop thrash
