I'm an EMMY nominated multi-instrumentalist and composer, specializing in guitar, bass and keys, and composing full orchestration and exotic instrumentation from around the world.

Steve Vai signed me to his label and released a single I wrote with Ike Willis, the longest serving member of Frank Zappa's band. The video is here:

I am currently working on an ambitious multi-album project with 2017 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee singer/songwriter Jon Anderson from YES. We performed a song at NAMM in 2016 at a vendor booth:

Here's also a quick guitar solo from one of the other songs, this is video I did for Strandberg Guitars, who I endorse.

Here's some bass lead playing on an endorsement video I did for ESP:

And here is a bunch of different styles of music I wrote from a TV network, mostly short 10-30 second pieces, gives a good feel for my range, where I wrote and play everything:

I have been involved in these several projects as mentioned for a while, and am looking to keep my chops up on a variety of styles, and so I wanted to make myself available as a session musician for interesting projects.

I have my own studio and can record tracks in my system an send them back to you. I can also do real-time, uncompressed PCM audio streams from my system over the internet.

I can record the following instruments:

6 string guitar
7 string guitar
4 string bass
5 string bass
4 string fretless bass
6 string steel string acoustic
6 string nylon string acoustic
12 string steel string acoustic
Piano and all manner of keyboards/synthesizers, vintage and modern, and high quality orchestral instruments from East West Sounds.

Ideally you would have a song recorded that needs a part added to it, can send me the backing track with tempos properly mapped, and I would send you back tracks that have my tone added to it, as well as clean recordings so you can re-amp with whatever tone you like, and also MIDI tracks for any piano/synth parts so you can choose your own sound.

Rates will depend on what you need and can be discussed. Please don't attach sound files to an email, rather a link to hear your song. I look forward to hearing from you!
