I’ve spent the last 15 years touring and recording as a keyboardist with Kimbra, Jon Anderson (Yes), Gene Ween, my band Arc Iris, and countless others. I'm fascinated with finding not only the perfect sound and part for a song, but one that is unique and alive.
My background lives within the cross section of early 70's progressive rock, Claude Debussy, Stevie Wonder and sample based music ala DJ Shadow and J Dilla. I adore synthesizers and have a vast knowledge of how to utilize them. I love playing fat Moog bass and warm Prophet pads, but also appreciate the subtlety of bringing out different sounds in an acoustic piano.
Other artists I’ve had the pleasure of sharing the stage with include, Neko Case, Perry Farrell, Donald Fagen, Gail Ann Dorsey, AC Newman, Slash, Nicole Atkins, Elvis Perkins, John Medeski, Marco Benevento, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and The Barr Brothers.
