Greetings from my new home in Brooklyn, New York! I've got some fun music projects in the future here in the city and I can't wait for everyone to hear it! I decided to give all of my latest metal efforts to the Bandcamp and Soundcloud pages for free downloads so get over and get your free tunes! You can use the Soundcloud player below to access them all as well. 

I have my next outing in Japan with the Aggressive Dogs in a few weeks and I can't wait to get back over there! This will also be the maiden voyage of my brand new Positive Grid Bias Rack amp! All of the tones you hear on my solo stuff is thanks to Positive Grid, and the guys were nice enough to cut me a deal on this remarkable piece of equipment. Coupled with my Maxon FX, it sounds lethal! 

I have 5 copies left of An Untold Sadness - Sonorous on CD! Use the PayPal link below to get one because this isn't getting pressed again! Thanks as always to everyone sending emails and reaching out via social media with kind words regarding the album! I've got some new AUS stuff to release very soon! 
 

Be well! Enjoy the tunes!

I recently guested on a podcast called Good Vibrations with a fantastic author and truth researcher named Mark Devlin.  His book "Musical Truth" is an in depth look at the music industry and its roll now and in earlier years in social engineering and mind control.  I joined him for a wild conversation about satanism and dark occultism found in heavy metal and hard rock.  We also discuss modern technology and go in depth into the mass controlling FM radio.  Check it out HERE and get Mark's awesome book "Musical Truth" HERE

The Path. 

 

Synchronicity has proven a key component in this musical path.  From the beginning stages of music development, to the earliest live settings at community centers and high school gymnasiums, to the first road trips, and to the first of many empty bar rooms; synchronicity has cut the switches and branches that occult this path.  

 

In the early days of the millennium there was a drive that was hard to divert any focus from.  Juggling two instruments equally until dropping one completely and beginning to understand the artistic side of this so called “hobby” made the first tracks on this path.  With a Berklee acceptance letter in hand and two local bands going, the journey’s outline started to reveal itself.  

You could say this is where the synchronicity kicked in as well.  

 

Over the next few years, the idea of college was thrown out, the drum sticks were put away, and a guitar, backed by a vision and some high hopes, took the front seat. By the year 2007, the bags were packed.  

Thy Will Be Done.

 

Onward…out of the mountains and into the city.  A run down warehouse with little heat, no clean drinking water or shower, and a substantial mouse/rat population doesn’t define the ideal living quarters, but natural instinct to decorate this temporary dwelling set in.  With plenty of instruments in house and little to no sleep some nights due to rehearsing bands 24 hrs a day, artistic expression started to become more of a feeling than a term.  

 

Sooner than later, the road became home; the road and an old conversion van that seemed to like to blow tires and burn out axels.  The shows got bigger, the crowds got bigger, the bar rooms filled up, and the paycheck just put gas in the tank.  Naturally, of course, synchronicity continued to guide every move whether it was known at the time or not.  From the first tour, to the first MTV appearance, to the first radio airplay, to the first tour overseas, to the first endorsements, and so on and so forth.  

 

Skills were honed, performing became second nature, and the liver was abused.  Emotions fluctuated on a daily basis both collectively and independently.  Friends were made, friends were lost, and injuries and illnesses didn’t cease one bit.  However, one thing was for sure; that half hour on stage made it all seem acceptable.  

 

 

The United States, Europe, England, Canada, and Japan to name a few became home away from home anywhere from just a couple weeks to upwards of 2 months at a time.  Writing music began to have a formula, an overall end result, and even an intended audience at times.  This was an occurrence that seemed to deteriorate the love of the craft.  Countless shows with the likes of Metallica and Lamb of God, to tours with Devildriver, Trivium, and Fear Factory, to the endless miles and hours away from home ushered in synchronicity once again.  

 

Three records, and one still yet to be released; the bags were packed yet again in early 2014.  

 

The Rebirth, Aggressive Dogs

 

 

To all of the sudden become lost on a path can be a fearful thing.  Regaining your footing may seem impossible and panic can set in.  When that clear path on which you traversed for so long, once again, becomes rampant with obstacles and obscuring limits, it can be rather easy to give up.  This is where synchronicity fully revealed itself.  

 

Over the past three years the path has been revealed once again through synchronicity and positivity.  Japan has become a second home.  Writing music has once again become a mysterious process of suspense and excitement.  The artistic expression has now become the only reason for doing this work.  Tour has become a time to expand on mind, body, and spirit.  It’s become more about being inspired by surroundings, life, and teachings.  Skills are honed even further as well as new skills acquired.  The lessons from the past reflect decisions made in future.    

 

Focus not on a plan, but on the path, express yourself through art and imagination, be good and let synchronicity take the reigns.
