News/Reviews!

Hello all!

First of all, as many of you may know I recently moved out of Los Angeles and have settled in Austin, TX for the time being. I’m super stoked to be here! I’ll be playing a lot of gigs where I’ll be shredding my own tunes but I’m also already doing a ton of sideman work with artists I love like Slomo Drags, Matthew Squires, and Real Live Tigers.

Matthew Squires and I will be doing a big east coast tour in a few weeks so stay tuned for more info on that!

Also, Land of Disenfranchisement recently got some love from Pop Press International and the MySpace blog! The MySpace blog said the album is the 7th best cassette release of 2014 so far! Wow! Check ’em out below:
