Fez started me off playing professionally by insisting I move to Boston and form a band with him. We were musical brothers already and brothaz from othah mothaz as well. He's the bassist and producer for many projects in Boston area but the one that showcases his writing is called Hi Fi Funk and is, as anything he's directly involved with, awesome.
I am artist-in-residence at this 5 star resort. Sea Island and Saint Simons Island have adopted me with open arms. It's a great community and region! Manager Director and fellow musician Rick Riess saw a concert of mine in NorCal. We struck up a friendship and eventually got me out here. He's now with Montage Resorts where I play as well.
Christopher Tyng and Grow Music Project
Good friend Christopher Tyng and I formed the Sunshine Brothers together in 2008 and put the band on hiatus in 2011. It was a fantastic experience for me and I grew a lot as an an artist. This is his new musical endeavor. It's really cool! Independent artists should especially check it out
Singer/songwriter Brian Marquis was the creator and stage manager of the Acoustic Basement Stage on the Warped Tour. He booked me two years in a row and has been my buddy and a great supporter of my music ever since.
My favorite duo and best buddies. We lived in Boston at the same time and we are both Faneuil Hall and Passim alums. I miss touring and hanging out with them!
Friend Bear Erickson is an amazing guitarist, photographer and recorder of music. 'Bears Repeating' was done at his studio in Santa Barbara County, CA. Check it out and definitely go record there if you have a need
