Lots going on…

Hey everybody,

I know it’s been quiet here but I wanted to give an update. A couple of years ago I decided to go back to school and finish the degree I started quite a long time ago. Since then, I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Music in Guitar Performance from the Musicians Institute in Hollywood. I have now moved on to USC (University of Souther California) and the Thornton School of Music where I’m working on my Master of Music in Studio Guitar. Even with all of that going on I’m still out playing. I’m working with a few different artists as well as playing my own shows and teaching private lessons. Be sure to check the “Gigs” tab to see where I will be performing or reach out if you’re interested in studying with me.

I have also had the opportunity to play guitar for a couple of new tracks from a really fun artist called Wax Jelly. Be sure and check out their videos below.

GoGo Tuners

I am so excited to have been added to the incredible artist roster of GoGo Tuners. I have been using these now for quite some time and to be on board with them is truly an honor. Make sure and check them out.



New Endorsement

I am happy to announce that I have now joined the artist roster for The G7th Capo Company. I have been a longtime fan and user of everything that they make and am honored to be a part of this amazing company. Thank you to everyone at G7th for not only their support, but for making a brilliant line of capos that I can rely on each and every day.

Signature Strings

Thanks to Curt Mangan Strings for not only making brilliant strings for all my instruments, but now I’ve got my own signature set. I couldn’t imagine playing any other strings.

Album Release/Release Party

Hey everyone,

Several months back I hooked up with my buddies Jett Pink,  his brother Chris Pink, and drummer/percussionist Jerry Lyons and we cut a blues record. We are called “The Pink Family Band” and the record is titled “Saved By Memories”. I lent some killer guitar work to these tracks and it is finally available to the public. On Saturday, June 9, at the House Of Blues on the Sunset Strip, we will be playing some of these very songs live for you. The show is at 8:00 in the Foundation Room and it is free. Come by and check it out.


Be sure and go to www.jettpink.com to get a copy of the album.


Rock For A Difference Los Angeles

I have been blessed to be a part of this very cool residency with Decoded. The shows are every Thursday in May at AMPLYFi in Los Angeles. Each show will feature different bands and will also be for a different charity. I hope to see everyone come down to show their support and be a part of something very special. If you’re not able to come out please check out the bands playing and also be sure to look into these charities and donate. You can tweet the hashtag #rockforadifferencelosangeles

New Endorsement

I am proud to say that I am the newest artist endorsing Curt Mangan strings. If you’re not familiar with them, please go check them out and order something. Tell them I sent you. You will be blown away at how amazing these strings sound and feel.




New Shows Announced

Hey everyone. I’ve got a lot of new shows coming up so be sure to check out the Gigs section. I’ll be playing quite a bit in the coming weeks and months with some new projects that I’m really excited about.

The First one is called “Decoded” and is fronted by the super talented Derek Jordan. It’s a rock/pop/punk outfit much in the style of Nirvana, Weezer, and Dinosaur Jr.

Next up is “The Aristocrats”, LA’s least sober cover band. Yes, it is based on the aristocrats joke and we will be playing all of your favorite sex and masturbation songs. This group is made up of members of Trick Pistol (yes, that’s me) as well as another local LA band Snatch Magnet.

…And finally we have “2 Guys With Wood”. This is just an electro-acoustic duo starring myself and Jimmie Romero from Knockout Handsome. This will also be a covers group but we will do everything from new songs to classics, all with our cheesy Casio drum machine from 1985.
