I’ve written songs my whole life. As a young kid I had a paper route. I’d head out in the morning, armed with a sony walkman for entertainment. Frequently the batteries would die and I’d be left without music, so I’d start making up songs as I walked. Thats basically still how I write songs. I’ve been lucky to work with some very talented folks over the years in creating music for a variety of projects. I’ve written music for clients as varied as Sesame Street and Radioshack.
Recently, my song “Kick it on Our Bikes” was featured in the directorial debut of Reed Morano in her film MEADOWLAND, starring Olivia Wilde and Luke Wilson. It made its theatrical debut at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival. Pretty cool! This tune here:
I have been honored to write music for some cool projects. I provided over 20 songs for FREEZER BURN, a part of the PBS online series “Fizzy’s Lunch Lab”. Here’s one of the “hits”:
This is another one from the same project, and one of my personal favorites:
I recently worked on a cool project for my friends over at Cloud Kid and did the fired up little theme song for their project BRO DUEL
Cloud Kid were also cool enough to have me compose some music for their excellent project EARTH to ALLEN
This is a video for my song “I Want a Zoo for Christmas”, animated by my friends Mike Annear, Joe Boyle and Dan Flynn. We’re at almost 200,000 views! Its popular with the kids at Christmas time:
A few years ago, by buddies Chris Geraghty and Matt Kaiser used one of my tunes in a mother’s day commercial they created for Radioshack. The tune was engineered and co-produced by Adam Rourke. That’s also Adam playing drums and bass:
Want to hear the whole tune? Of course you do!
This is one of my best songs. It’s a love song about the waitress from Twin Peaks
This is “Hoodie Weather” off of last year’s album “Halloweenilicious”
Been thinking I should start playing this song out. Always dug the chorus. From the album “roadlier days”. Here’s a little video I slapped together of footage shot on a road-trip out to P-town last December. Its smeary and impressionistic and not groundbreaking but I think the visual and the audio pair well:
One of my songs, “Hey Momma”, was used for the opening credits of Greg Pak’s film “Robot Stories”. Dan Kanemoto (the same Dan Kanemoto that won 2005′s Mr. Awesome Award) did the visuals. Pretty cool:
Dan also made a really cool music videos for an older Christmas song of mine entitled “On the Road for Christmas”. Check it:
