I am thrilled to announce that I am back in the studio to record my debut EP, Missing October, with an insane lineup of talented professionals that will be assisting me / doing all the hard work
I will be recording at two different studios. The mixing and majority of tracking will take place at WrightWay Studios in Baltimore. The remainder will be taken care of at Bryan Ewald’s private studio, The Elsewhere Room.
Steve Wright, owner of WrightWay Studios, will be taking charge as Engineer and Co-Producer. Steve has many years of experience working with numerous great artists & bands. His client list is far too long to list, but some of the most well known include Slipknot, Mars Volta, Jimmie’s Chicken Shack, Charm City Devils, Mos Def, Laughing Colors, Dru Hill, and Dog Fashion Disco.

Introducing the talented musicians:
First and foremost, my good friend and force behind it all … Mr. Bryan Ewald of the Jarflys and Starbelly. He is also known for his work with Rachael Yamagata, Jimmie’s Chicken Shack, Bumpin’ Uglies, Paul Reed Smith, The Kelly Bell Band, and many others.
Bryan appeared on my last single, “Walk On”, tracking my vocals and laying down some amazing guitar tracks at his private studio The Elsewhere Room. He will be helping even more on this go around with production, guitars, and vocal tracking.
I say “force behind it all” because Bryan put all of this together and if it weren’t for him, the commencement of this EP would have taken a lot longer to organize. Thank you for all your hard work Bryan!

Jason Butcher & Dan Carlisle
Bryan also contacted and set me up with two great musicians from the Delmarva area. Jason Butcher of Baltimore based Among Wolves and Dan Carlisle, known for his work with Jason Liebman and Rachael Yamagata. These guys are no strangers to the studio or stage for that matter. Both have recorded at WrightWay Studios before and I am thrilled to be working with them.

Keyboardist extraordinaire Rami Jaffee of The Wallflowers & Foo Fighters. Rami is also known for his studio work with Soul Asylum, Pearl Jam, Stone Sour, Coheed and Cambria, Everclear, Edwin McCain, Richie Sambora, Macy Gray, Melissa Etheridge, Garth Brooks and many more. This is the first time I’ve incorporated keys in my music and I couldn’t be in better hands!

Percussion genius Dave Krusen formerly of Pearl Jam & Candlebox as well as Unified Theory & Hovercraft. Dave Krusen played drums on Pearl Jam’s “Ten” album which is possibly my favorite album of all time. This album introduced me to a style that I would later incorporate in my own writing. Dave is extremely talented and has a technique & sound like no other.
