Welcome to my home on the internet

I live in New York City and I play, write, arrange, and produce music for myself and lots of other people. I spend quite a bit of time in Austin, Texas, and travel around the country with various groups. I've contributed performances, compositions, and arrangements to recordings by bands like Snarky Puppy, Okkervil River, Bill Laurance, Nelo, and many more. My band is Progger.

End-of-May summer updates

This month I've had the pleasure of playing at some really great venues with some really great people.  Nelo's music has been developing like it never has before, mostly thanks to the brilliant and energetic contributions of the two newest members, Ryan Jacobi and Matt Muehling.  And Matt Ragland's new songs, of course, which just keep getting better.  Nelo usually backs off from performing in the summer, but there are going to be many acoustic shows, plus a live-in-the-studio project that will be very cool.  The more time I get to spend in Pedernales, the better.

I'll be playing lots of other gigs with various people over the summer, too, and with luck I'll be able to put together some shows with my own group and at least one with my ol' chum Pete Weise, the great composer and guitarist from Dallas.  Nothing on the books yet, but there will be soon.  Here are my upcoming public shows:

5/30: Nelo (ACOUSTIC) at Saxon Pub, Austin, TX
6/1: Nelo (full band) at ACL Live at the Moody Theater, Austin, TX
6/6: Nelo (ACOUSTIC) at Saxon Pub, Austin, TX
6/17: Nelo (ACOUSTIC) at Schotzi's, College Station, TX
