Born and raised in Cleveland, OH. My dad, a 60s era acid rock musician was the primary influence behind my interest in music when I was a little kid.
My first guitar was his old 60s Gibson ES-330. He taught me a few chords at the bottom of the neck, how to throw a proper bridge and said "if you love it, you'll learn the rest on your own". I was ten years old, and that's pretty much what I did.

In my 20s I became interested in recording. Started to accumulate some percussion instruments, bought a bass, learned to mic amplifiers and I just kept on experimenting with my sound. Eventually, I picked up a 1950s Valco, Supro Comet and it became an instant source of inspiration. Capturing the sound of that amazing little amp became a passionate hobby of mine. I don't chop my tracks up to get to the perfect performance, I record everything from beginning to end to get a natural vibe. 

Special thanks to friends @aaronspaceandtime for the well placed keys, and @steelvaportrails for the masterful mastering. enjoy.
