I’ve been writing and playing music since I was a kid, and very early on I could see that my music would probably adapt well in the context of movies or TV shows. At the time, however, the internet as we know it did not exist, so the world of film music seemed far away and unobtainable, (living in a sub-rural area outside of Green Bay Wisconsin in the 80’s could be that way) so I mainly focused on getting my guitar chops together (Jazz, classical, rock, reggae, funk etc.) and writing music for the bands I played in. I continued this way through music school career at Northern Illinois University, and continued writing music for bands, and for other projects of my own that didn’t lend themselves well to the live experience.
I became more interested in writing, recording and producing and less interested in performing, so now needed a way to get my music into the world. I continued working but in a vacuum for many years, not knowing what to do with the music I was producing. Luckily, as I was struggling with this dilemma, an old friend of mine from my childhood who also happened to be a composer, contacted me out of the blue. This composer also happened to be Kevin McLeod. Many of you visiting this site are probably already familiar with Kevin, and you likely found me through his site, incompetech.com. Kevin introduced me to the idea of selling my music directly to the public for Creative Commons use, which is what I’m doing here.
For the last year and a half I have been accumulating an ever widening style of music, for the purposes of licensing music at an affordable price. This site is devoted to the distribution of that music, as well as a platform to feature my past and current solo album projects. I am available for commission works and collaborations. Also, let me know if you are having trouble finding a particular style of music out there. If I know there is a need for a particular style of song, I may get inspired to write one.
