I was in bands for 17 years; anything from playing bass in heavy metal bands to playing mandolin and fronting a southern rock band to doing regular singer-songwriter gigs at the Bluebird in Nashville and Eddie's Attic in Atlanta. My musical journey took a wild turn when my air conditioning repair man convinced me to do some hip-hop sessions with a few guys named Bonecrusher, Lil John, and David Banner...the result of our chance meeting was what's now known as "Crunk Music."
I’ve gone on to produce, write, mix, and play multiple instruments on major label records in several genres...from Rock, Rap and Pop, to just plain weird. Taking a chance on hip-hop years ago when a lot of people thought I was crazy ended up leading to some of the most successful years of my career; but rock music has, and always will be, where my heart is. Luckily there’s a new wave of bands coming through now that I’m really excited about.
I now have a top secret underground studio called The Zone hidden in an unassuming suburb north of Atlanta. I've been doing this since before most of my clients were born...back before MIDI, before PODs, before digital ANYTHING we were cutting tape and playing songs all the way through with no click track.
Below, you will be able to find out more about me and some of the artists and labels that I've worked with over the last few years. I'm always looking for new artists and projects to work on whether it's an indie band looking to release a record independently or a major label artist working on their next hit record...I'm just in to good music and great artists. period. Not bound by genres...just good music.
