Do Something Crazy!!!!

Over the summer I put out a new song called Do Something Crazy. Honestly I made the song one day while jamming with my buddy Shiben, it just kind of happened naturally.  Cook then made it sound nice nice and we knew we had something.  We sent it to a few friends and a week later it ended up being placed in a movie (Mike and Dave need Wedding Dates) and Madden 17.   We literally had no idea. Insane how a good day of jamming can turn into something.  For every good day, there are certainly twice as many days where things don't go as planned.  But the good days! Well the good days are the reason we keep going back.  Anyhow, enjoy the song!

"The Boogie" featured on the new Apple Watch commercial!

hey it's been a while since i updated this website, but from now on I'm going to do a better job because I woke up drank some coffee and decided to do a better job.  So let's see how it lasts.

But in the meantime, in an incredible bit of news, my song "The Boogie" was featured in the new Apple Watch commercial.  Check it out and stay boogie'ing friends.

The Backyard Hang: Big Trouble Burger/Wild Life Acoustic Performance (EPISODE 3)

In this episode of The Hang, I make The Big Trouble Burger and then perform an acoustic version of "The Wild Life". 

The burger came out really good.  The tomatoes were sweet and rich, and the jalapenos were really hot.  The only thing I would have changed is adding more cheese in the middle.  With cheese, always more is a good idea, lol.  You want that middle gooey!

Thanks for watching!

Interview with

"It’s funny, because when I first went to move out here, I thought, “Okay, I’m going to come out here and song-write for people, too,” because I just signed a publishing deal to write songs for other people as well, and I just kind of found that whole scene to be not my vibe at all. But there is a ton of awesome creative people out here. And this album was funny, because I had my little studio and I pretty much engineered 90% of my album. I’d just sit in my room and work on these songs all day, and it was actually the first time I’d ever done that. But I’d sit and I’d jam with my buddies, and we’d send the record to Carlos who’s in Austin, and I don’t know, there was no real rhyme or reason, but there’s definitely creative energy out here for sure"
