Music has always fueled me creatively. When I was young, I played trombone in the school band, but soon moved on to the bass guitar to be more connected to the rock & roll that really got me going. I played in several bands over the years, most recently the Bay Area group, Level 12. These experiences were hugely important to me and allowed me to learn about the logistics of making music; from writing and recording my work, to marketing, and even just finding a way to keep the lights on in the studio.
After Level 12 broke up, I took the opportunity to reassess where I was going with my music. I wanted to find a way to minimize the cost of producing and recording. I also wanted to be more than just a band member; I wanted to compose my own music entirely. This lead to the birth of both vt100 and Studio Laminar. Since then, I’ve worked hard to increase Studio Laminar’s capabilities as well as my own.
I’m really excited about my debut album, Strangle Quiet Sunset. It is the culmination of everything that I have worked for as an artist and a producer. I hope you love it as much as I loved making it.
Moving forward, I am dedicated to using my talents, and my studio space to foster a creative community of musicians that both strive to find their own voice and to inspire others to create music through their drive and passion.
Thank you so much for checking out my work. I’d love to hear from you, whether to talk shop, or to collaborate at Studio Laminar.
