I grew up in Jersey. I’ve loved electronic music since I was a kid. When I wasn’t building LEGOs, I was either making my own EDM, or staying up past bedtime listening to it on the radio. I made my way through state choir in high school, a cappella in college (Off The Beat at UPenn), and a bunch of bands and projects since I moved to LA.
I’ve been a composer, a mixer, a music editor, a session singer, a backup singer, a lead singer, a bass player (not a good one), a studio tech, a dancer, a video editor, a graphic designer, a web designer—pretty much every music/media job you can imagine, all in order to make a living in a creative industry in a competitive town. I’ve had some cool opportunities: my work appears in something like 40 TV shows and movies. I’ve played every major rock club in Hollywood.
But all along I’ve had a nagging desire to create a solo electronic project, and I finally went for it at the beginning of 2017, after the collapse of a brief stint as a meditation teacher (yep, tried that too). In the last 3 years, I’ve started something like 100 songs (most of which will never be finished), studied songwriting, voice, marketing, built a wonderful team that’s kinda like my own little label but better, and here we are in the midst of the debut—which started, ironically, a month before COVID-19.
In the first nine months of the initial release, my debut EP Undefended has been streamed more than half a million times. Glowing reviews have been published in music blogs such as Grungecake and YourEDM. And most recently, the single “Brilliant Eyes” won grand prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. EP2 is on track for a 2021 release, along with several exciting collaborations, videos, remixes, and more.
My deepest hope is that my music present the authenticity and depth that I have fought so hard to uncover. I hope to inspire you to believe that you too can create what you want to create.
