Here are some music pieces of my history. From a very long time ago (it seems):

Hot Sands (1996)

HOT SANDS is my "critically acclaimed" 1996 debut release. Kind of a silly name in retrospect. This is my record about growing up, the ocean, waves, sun and sand - being young, etc. This recording was great fun. On those rare occasions when I hear the tracks, the tunes still bring me back to the place I grew up.

Standing Right Here

STANDING RIGHT HERE is about relationships and friends, dreaming of the future and a good bottle of beer. My highlights were the gospel tracks on Memphis and Falling, and any song that George Ruch has played guitar on. This was a very fun project for me to do. STANDING features Jess Dyen, George Ruch and Dan Grosh. Thanks to everyone! Click here to check out the galleries!

Random Stuff

Videos

Just a variety of stuff… photos and music. We were never very good at taking pictures - so the few I have are very special. Also, here is a song prepared for a reunion (there is a fair bit of Hebrew - featuring my friend Kelly Lin Knott):


If I Could Fly
My time playing music has been just plain fun - often goofy - very relaxed - and never all that serious. I wish that I'd done a better job preserving that goofiness, but at least I have a few videos lying around that help bring back the experience. So... without further adieu...
