ABOUT

i live in London & hail from the Pacific Northwest of the US... Longview, Portland, Olympia, Seattle. I grew up playing music when all hell broke loose w/ grunge. Was playing jazz, blues, rock, & Afro-Cuban, then moved on acid jazz w/ some lads in Olympia.

I am the drummer for Black Soul Redemption, and the sound is post punk/ acid punk with influences from Rival Sons, Social Distortion, Nine Inch Nails, Fugazi, Morphine, Soul Coughing, Smashing Pumpkins, Helmet, PJ Harvey, Melvins, Faith No More, Placebo, Black Sabbath, Jane's Addiction, Single Mothers, Miracle Workers, Massive Attack, Thievery Corporation.

I focus on flow and dynamics and like to play loud and create excellent music with good souls who slam the cage till it breaks. I keep it real with ego at the door and expect the same. Vanguard, seekers, truth tellers only.

Check out the vids or the song. These are iPhone recordings in the rehearsal studio, so the levels are not ideal. Recording rig will be used once the studios open back up.
