Bio

**Not accepting invitations at this time. Hope to have time and energy to come back soon**

I am a vocalist, and often write my own lyrics.  I am interested in many genres: pop, southern/folk/hard rock, electronica.  Mainly, if a song inspires me to sing I'm up for it.  My go to mic is a MXL V69ME with an upgraded Mullard tube to give an upfront present yet smooth sound.  My preamp has pretty decent specs, and I use a soundbooth when necessary, so I aim to deliver high quality seps.

I do like to have input on mixes, yet I don't mix myself.  I guess I'm a back seat driver of sorts :D.  I've learned I like to hear my voice a certain way in songs, yet I try to be flexible.  I do have some nice tools for vocal processing, and can take care of subtle eq and time/pitch correction for mix ready tracks.  I really enjoy the camraderie of working with others here, and like to focus on just a few projects at a time.  Check out my projects here, and drop me a line if you have a project you think I could help with :)

My Showcase Tracks
Select
The Streams...A song about our domestic surveillance practices infringing on the rights of ordinary citizens. This came together quite well with an all-star team!
Select
Great Instruments from the Vman and killer mix from dogbizkits. The song is called Humanity Rush...a story about breaking free from machine overlords. Would love to pitch this for a soundtrack...
Select
Beautifully Tattered...This song is a hopeful tale of sibling reconciliation.
Select
An eco/Lee song with an extended dance remix courtesy of the legendary Pascal. Talk about an all star team....
Select
Hypnotique..The story of a regretful, predatorial womanizer, musically inspired by Depeche Mode.
Select
My first duet with a rapper...insane instrumentals and mix...I almost popped a coronary when singing this one. This song will pump....(clap!)...you up! :-D
Select
What happens when you mix the keyboards of MulTor with the heavy guitars of rollingthunder... a reese-tastic peanut butter and chocolately mix of Metal-Mode. Voila!
Select
Sometimes a one man band is all you need...and Itsuro fits the bill. I was pulled in by this amazing instrumental...
Select
A Latin Pop Tune and former featured staff pick. An amazing collaboration of instrumentalists with a killer mix. I'm grateful to have been part of this...
Select
A pop groove about missing one's spouse stationed away in the armed services while taking care of kids at home...
