I am happy to announce I have joined the contemporary chamber meets post rock group CORDIS and will be in the studio doing basic tracking on the next set of CORDIS tunes in April and May in preparation for our upcoming fall tour in September/October. Very excited about this project as it will give me a chance to explore the sonic possibilities of my electric guitar, fretless electric guitar, and lap steel guitar in such a unique setting. More details soon!
I'll be in the pit orchestra playing tenor banjo and guitar for the Wheelock Theater's production of "Frog and Toad" this April/May. While I am not particularly into musical theater, this is going to be a fun way for me to get involved. For more info visit the Calendar page.
I am uploading photos and descriptions of my summer project of building a tanbur under the tutelage of Feridun Ozgoren and Fred Stubbs on my tumblr page. Thus far, the process has been very interesting and super fun. I will be posting a more in depth description of the process soon on my Instruments page, so stay tuned!
