I was born in Tampa and grew up in Miami, Atlanta and Tulsa... now I reside in San Marcos, Texas, which was recently described as a hippie enclave by Thrillist.com.  

I typically track and mix my projects at yellow DOG Studios in San Marcos, Texas and also at Abbey Road Studios in London, UK.  I'm a partner at yellow DOG... I started the studio as my personal workspace in 1995 and I began regularly cutting projects at Abbey Road in 2003.  I play guitar and keyboards and can fake my way through a few other stringed instruments.  I've played all over America and parts of Europe with a few different artists over the years.  My greatest passion is to assist emerging artists in building a solid foundation for a lasting career. 

 

I'm a voting member of NARAS (National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences), Americana Music Association, Americana Music Association UK, AES (Audio Engineering Society) and my publishing rights organization is BMI. 

 

I've contributed parts to thousands of recordings and over the years have had the pleasure of working with some really amazing artists including the Meat Puppets, Caroline's Spine, Zac Maloy, Green Day, Mike Flanigin, Gary Clark Jr., Kat Edmonson, K'Naan, Pine Top Perkins, Brandon Jenkins, Cody Canada, Junior Brown, Michael Martin Murphey, Mike and The Moonpies, Colter Wall, Season Ammons, Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers and Jason Boland and the Stragglers. 

I've had the good fortune of having my work recognized through some awards as well as charting success on Billboard (18 albums including 4-#1, 7-top 10), FMQB/AAA (3 singles), Texas Music Chart / Texas Regional Radio / CDX TRACtion Texas (102 total including 4-#1, 6-top 10),  Americana Music Association (20 albums / 12 singles), Roots Music (3 singles,5 albums) J1 (Japan), Billboard Japan, ARIA Australia, Australian Blues Chart (2 album - #2/#3), Australian Country Chart (1 top 10, 2 top 50) and EuroAmericana charts.

 

The Spotify streams for the recordings I've been lucky enough to touch, exceed 1 billion.
