Grammy Nominated Producer, Songwriter, Multi-Instrumentalist

  • Happy Holidays!

    Hello!

    I hope everyone has been well! Things have been really busy and I've had the pleasure of working on some great new records!!!! Check out the Studio Page, loads of new gear has been added!

    I received my AWOLNATION Platinum Record in the mail this past month! I feel incredibly fortunate to be apart of the AWOLNATION family and to have written and recorded on Megalithic Symphony. Checkout David Letterman tomorrow night for their performance!

    I received my Official Grammy Nomination Certificate from the Grammy Office this month for my contribution on Gustavo Galindo's debut record that I co-wrote and performed on! The record was Nominated for Best Latin Pop Rock Record.

    A song I co-wrote with Samantha Ronson's called Meltdown was just licensed for the Mindy TV Project. You can hear the track on my player on the front page. Sam RULES!!!

    I just wrapped a 3 song EP for Pulse Artist Kassia Conway with my production company Riot City. A video for the first single should be released shortly. Rene Arsenault and I are also developing a new MC that's incredible!! More to come;)

    Played bass on Jem's new record. I've been a fan of hers since we performed on the same stage at Pukelpop 2004. Super talented artist and a great session with Denny Weston Jr., Todd Burke, Dave Levita and my buddy Marshall on piano and organ. It was a blast doing a live session at one of THE coolest studios in LA Grandmaster!!

    Co-wrote two TV commercials - 1. Microsoft and 1. Intel

    I just wrapped Shane Alexander's new record Ladera. Shane and I had a BLAST making the record and I couldn't be any happier with how it turned out. I produced, mixed, engineered and played bass, electric guitar and drums, so it was a mountain of work. I think it's Shane's best record to date and am honored to have been apart of it. www.shanealexander.com

    I also produced, engineered and mixed a second record/project for Shane that's under wraps at the moment but is incredible unique. More to come...

  • Hello World!

    My new website is now up and running!!! Since this is my first post, it's a bit long. I'll try and update the site as much as possible.

    I'm proud to announce that The Drowning Men's debut record All Of The Unknown for Bortsal Beats Records is set to be released on July 17, 2012! I produced and co-wrote the record with the guys and couldn't be happier with how it turned out. It was Mixed by Ryan Williams (Ima Robot, 30 Seconds to Mars) and Todd Burke (M83, Belle and Sebastian). They've been on the road all year with the Alkaline Trio, Airbourne Toxic Event, Flogging Molly and Lucero.

    AWOLNATION's first single "Sail" is now Certified Platinum!!! I'm super stoked for Aaron, Kenny, Hayden and Dave and very grateful to be apart it all!! Check them out at the Nokia Theater this month.
