Music

In 2016 I released my first solo effort as Heroic Spear Thrower.  CDs, SoundCloud, BandCamp are available.

I graduated from the Recording Industry program at MTSU in 1997. While I was there, I wrote and had a few songs recorded. Here are a couple of those songs for free download.

I’ve been involved in a few other bands/projects over the years. Recently Trevor Goodchild, and before that Falling Under Static, Evermore, Build Happy Monsters, Jerusalem Crickets, and Genius Heap. I play guitar, bass, can plunk a melody out on a keyboard, and make sloppy noise on some drums. I used to play trumpet back in high school.
