*having just relaunched the website, stay tuned for a more structured and informative bio.
I’m a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who specializes in catchy melodies and harmonies that burrow deep into the listener’s brain. I’m based in Los Angeles, California.
My music spans a wide range of genres and styles but I’m primarily known for electronic, rock, orchestral, jazz, and classic pop. Over the course of my career, I’ve recorded albums, composed scores and written original songs for film and television. Occasionally, I’ve also written jingles and theme songs.
Because I’ve worked in so many genres, I’ve frequently worked under various project names such as Alien Tempo Experiment 13, Poperratic, and Merkcurie. I released over 80 cassette recordings during the 1990s and early 2000s. I also was selected for a headlining slot for the Los Angeles leg of the International Pop Overthrow music festival.
In 1998, A.J. Lambert (Sleepington, Nancy Sinatra) released my first vinyl E.P. through her Glimmerfed Records imprint. It was co-produced by Don Fleming (Sonic Youth, Shonen Knife) and received full rotation on influential station KXLU.
My original songs have appeared in major and independent films and television shows. A few other artists have covered my music for soundtracks.
I’ve recently finished my newest album, “Garagio” — an eclectic tribute to the popular music of the 1960s and 1970s.
