Hey folks, its Been awhile so I thought I better hop on here and post an update. Well, this wrist surgery recovery has taken much longer than I thought it would. I totally did not understand the complexity of it all – as far as the injury/surgery/recovery. I’ve had to relearn/retrain things and I have also had to learn to compensate for other things since my range of motion is very limited now (wrist doesn’t move very much). Luckily you do not have to move the wrist on your picking hand (right hand/wrist) very much but, it still is different and has effected the playing so, I am having to learn to adjust and re-adjust so to speak. Its been a long road But, I am still here and I am Still working on getting the playing up to par. I will keep you posted. Rock on and God Bless.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Looking forward to the New (Better) Year. Still recovering from surgery (a year for full recovery) so it has kinda delayed everything…. I should however be up to par enough by spring, I will then work on finishing up the Album. Well actually, I have started back up working on the things that I can now but, may have to save recording the remaining final solo’s till then as my chops are still not up to standard/normal yet. However, as soon as I can, I will finish the Album up. I will keep you posted. I plan to also re-schedule the west coast tour by then. Stay Tuned!
UPDATE: The Rebellious Child / KM West Coast tour for late August early September has been postponed due to I have to have surgery. However, this tour will be rescheduled as soon as possible. Please stay tuned and I will keep you updated with the new tour dates.
In the Studio working on the new Album…. Hopefully will be wrapping it up here soon. Cory (old Drummer) was in town this weekend and we jammed Friday and Saturday…. Might be putting some shows together – will keep you posted on that.
Stay Tuned! New and exciting things are happening.

It was Great to see and hang with my Bros Augustine, Stephen, Chris and Art (new friend and super cool fun guy) as well as Gilby Clark (Stephens good friend), Jack Frost, Tony, Ven.

Morley Pedals (Great Volume & Wahz ect….), as well as seeing and hanging with all the other friends and new friends (Please insert name here). Here are a few Pics from the show. I will be updating and adding more later more. I will also be adding more NEW News here shortly.

Summer NAMM 2013 Nashville,
Just got back from the 2013 summer NAMM in Nashville – had a BLAST! Nashville is a great town and there is live music/bands everywhere. Nashville really supports musicians and live music…. the town is always hoppin! I Did some playing/demoing at the Vivid booth - you can check it out here; http://youtu.be/8uLWiAEbumc
It was great to see my peeps at Morley (Bill is the coolest) and also my peeps at Vivid Amps (Dane, Nick, Danes wife, and also Nicks Mom – thanks for dinner guys), as well as meeting some new friends like Ven (Dude! you ROCK!) and also his drummer – who I can not remember his name off the top of my head. Its early and I am tired (that’s my excuse and I am sticking to it). I also ran into to some other friends and met some new ones.Oh! I guess I should add that my bass player Jonathan Thomas came down to the summer NAMM with me and he also had a good time…. It was his first Namm and, even though Summer NAMM is way smaller than Winter NAMM we still had a blast! and Nashville as a town – seriously ROCKS!
NAMM – 2013
Hey Friends, I am back from NAMM 2013 and Augustine and myself had a blast! It was great to see my friends at Carvin, Morley, Evidence Audio, as well as Shane Gibson, Jack Frost, as well as some new friends and contacts ect…. Saw some cool new gear like the Carvin carved top 7-strings…. as well as some other cool stuff. I actually did some playing at this NAMM at the Vivid Power Amp booth…. These are class D power amps made for processors, Pre-amps, Modelers ect…. and I have to say they sound good - I was pretty impressed. I have some exciting news to share and will do so shortly…. I am currently back in the studio working on my new CD. I am also running auditions for a new drummer as Ted was not able to fill the spot. If you are a drummer or know of a drummer please contact me and we will set up an audition. This is a paid Gig – so you must be serious and able to travel as there is a mini tour planned for this summer. Oops – that was one of the exciting news topics… well that one is out of the bag…. more on it later…. as well as the other “Good News” topics .
Ok, here are a couple pics from Saturdays band rehearsal. On Drums Ted Levine, and on Bass we have Jonathan Thomas.
Hello friends, I would like to introduce the new band lineup to you. On Bass we have Jonathan Thomas, and on Drums we welcome back Ted Levine. We started band rehearsals on saturday and everything is coming along very good. I am very happy with how soild everything is coming together. Look for show dates to be added soon. In other news I am still cranking away on the new Album and am still looking at an early 2013 release. Also in the plans for 2013 is a CD where I/you will pick tunes off of my first three CD’s and then they will be re-recorded with my band in the studio… This will give a much more powerful example of these tunes – especially the first two CD’s Groove Train and CHALK as they were very raw improv type recordings. Plus, the fact that I will be recording them with my band should be very cool…. Lets just say I am really looking forward to it.

The Rebellious Child CD is on time and will be released in March 2012. As far as the band lineup for Rebellious Child? Well, I am currently still auditioning for a bass player and drummer for Rebellious Child. I have not picked the finale lineup as of yet but, I will keep you updated.

Hey friends, I thought I should give you an update on things. So, some of you are probably wondering where is that Rebellious Child CD???? How about the new Instrumental CD? Yes, they are in the works but, with most of my time currently being devoted to the Rebellious Child band and CD – the instrumental CD will/is taking a little longer to get finished. However, be patient as its a Killer…..

Hey Friends, I just installed a Music Player on the right-hand side of my web-page (Look right now, it is there). I installed this so people can listen to full versions of tunes off of each of my CD’s with out having to click on the sample tab. You will also notice that I removed the Music (samples) tab/link as it is no longer needed since I have the player. Another change, You will also notice that the BUY tab has been changed to say DISCOGRAPHY / BUY. You can click on this tab to see a complete list of all of my CD’s and information on them. And then if you chose to buy you can click on any of the links of your choosing (CD BABY, Guitar Nine Records). I will also be adding an online store so you can buy right from my web-page.
New News! – April 11, 2011
Hey folks, I know its been a little while since the last News entry but, I am in the finishing stages of the Rebellious Child CD…. This is the first CD with vocals I have done since my last band PLEX’D …. I couple people have heard samples off of the disc and the feedback has been really good. I have also picked a new drummer for the band line up – Welcome aboard Eric. We will be starting rehearsals for new shows in a week or two…. Stay tuned for show Details. I have also accepted an endorsement with Traveler Guitar. I have been looking for somthing small that I could haul around with me – that would be handy just to keep the chops up, and also maybe something to use for warm-ups before shows – as sometimes its not practicle to grab your main guitars. I have checked out a couple of those necks with strings on them….. and they were ok… but, then I ran across Traveler Guitar. These things are super smalll but, the neck scale is regular scale. It is perfect just to have with me – I can pull it out anywhere and always keep my chops in shape. And it will be great for warmups before going on stage. for before shows.
The New Instrumental CD is also on the way to being finished too. However, I decided to focus on finishing the vocal CD first…. The new Instrumental CD is pretty intense and a HUGE step….. or should I say leap from the previous ones. Its still heavy, Still Melodic but, Way more Intense all the way around. Stay Tuned for details.
