CHORD LINES / IN THE GROOVE NOW AVAILABLE!
My latest album is now available excluseively on BandcampRecorded with some of my favorite musicians in a small airplane hangar outside of DC, this album was a ton of fun to make. With the amazing Mark Stanley on guitar, Greg Hatza on organ and Leland Nakamura on drums, it features two of my tunes plus five instrumental covers of rock and pop songs by Blue Öyster Cult, Barry Manilow, Chris Cornell, and Michael and Janet Jackson.
