Gameboy Music on Synth - Contra!

I don't know about you, but I grew up playing video games. Mostly on Gameboy, because we didn’t own a fancier system at the time.

I decided to start covering some of my favorite Gameboy tunes. This is the Contra - Operation C Area 1 theme, performed live on my Sequential Prophet XL. Hope you enjoy!

My Favorite Guitar Pedals on Synths

If you’ve seen my live videos before, you know how much I love running my keyboards through unique guitar pedals. These small boxes can completely transform your sound and lead you to new and inspiring sonic territories. I’ve written many new tunes thanks to them!
Here’s a 12 minute compilation video that features my favorite pedals (Red Panda Tensor, Chase Bliss Audio Thermae, Cooper FX Generation Loss and more). All playing, no talking. Hope you enjoy!

We've done it! 211% funded!

Well my friends, we did it. Thanks to YOU, my new album is 211% funded. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would get so much support for this! The additional funds will cover the many extra costs of making an album, such as artwork, CD duplication and merch. 
Can't wait to share more, thanks so much! 🙏

Controlling REAL Drums with Arcade Buttons (Live)

I’m so excited to share my new setup with you! I’ve been dreaming about this moment for a LONG time. Now, I can finally control a REAL drum kit with my fingers, LIVE! The technology that makes this possible is the amazing Polyend Perc.

This tune is a new original called Acceptance.
All the sounds you hear in this performance are played live simultaneously, no overdubs or sequences. Drop a YouTube comment and let me know if you'd like to see more videos with this setup!

Also, you can still pre-order my album for a limited time and get it before the official release!

Here’s the intro video:

My full Dark World (Zelda) cover is out!

A couple of months ago I recorded a short cover of the Dark World theme from Zelda: A Link to the Past for the trailer of the Dark World reverb pedal by Chase Bliss Audio. I enjoyed making it so much and was feeling so inspired that I knew I HAD to create a full version. Here it is!
The whole arrangement was created using nothing but this amazing pedal and the Sequential Prophet X synth, one of my favorites.

The video was produced by the super talented John Thompson (Ballooga Media).

If you like it the cover, it’s available of all streaming websites, including Spotify!

Happy Holidays everyone!

Chase Bliss Audio - Dark World

I had a blast making the music for the new Chase Bliss Audio pedal trailer! This is the Dark World theme from Zelda: A Link to the Past (originally by Koji Kondo). All the reverb comes from the Dark World pedal!
Being the big Zelda fan that I am, I also suggested this video concept to Chase Bliss Audio and luckily found the perfect person for the job - Olivier Cléro from Solarus Games, who masterfully created the pixel art, animation and map design for the project using their free ARPG game engine.

Prophet XL Demo

Honored to be part of this demo for the amazing new Sequential Prophet XL! One of the most immediate and inspiring instruments I've ever put my hands on.
I’m so glad I got to do this alongside amazing keyboardists Domi DegalleNicholas Semrad and Peter Dyer. If you haven’t heard of these people by now, check them out - you’ll be blown away by their skills.

Body and Soul

I don't play a lot of Jazz these days but this amazing pedal (Generation Loss by Cooper FX) really brought it out of me. The song is Body and Soul, keyboard is a Nord Stage 2 EX. This is different from my usual stuff but I hope you enjoy!

I've been working hard on my album so video content is a little slow, but stay tuned for some cool updates coming soon!

Hotel Jams & Utopia Tour

For the last couple of months I was on tour with Todd Rundgren's Utopia and it's been an incredible experience!
Here are 5 short jams I recorded live in my hotel rooms throughout the tour + some additional behind the scenes footage from my phone and fan footage from a few shows.
