Influences

History
been making music in one form or another for 20 + years. not really about "entertainment" for me. stuff that might suspend your disbelief. played around 1000 shows between 1996 and 2006, all over north america.

"This New York upstater must be a studio rat. This is his fourth LP (two are with the band Autumdivers) of making an acoustic guitar expand and shimmer into multicolor soundscape, to back and bolster his confident voice (which bears minor resemblance to Radiohead's Thom Yorke). An expert picker (see the 10-minute soft monster title track) he is equally adept at banjo, keyboards, and violin; anything to create a neo-symphonic climate for his soft-croon to swan dive into. Very, very, transporting" - Jack Rabid, Big Takeover.

My music (sometimes with Autumdivers) has been featured by
NBC (2004 summer Olympics)
BBC (Animal Camera)
MTV (Made)
PBS (Roadtrip Nation)
forthcoming documentary film Wake Me Up by Katie Adamides
