I am working husband and father of 5. After the passing of our second son and the crushing blow our family took from his death, my wife urged me to pick up my guitar again. After many attempts to form a band with the same artistic vision, I ended up going on this solo adventure. If your reading this... please listen to each of my songs to get a better understanding of what I am trying to create..... I'm a just guy who likes to play rocking good music. The ever present loner musician- I play all guitar, bass, drums, keyboard and vocal tracks on Chloe's Pet Rhino Songs. I don't want to follow the status quo, I want to blaze a new trail for Artistic musicians. I want to push down the doors and walls of the sandbox they want us All to play in. I promise not to kill the cool just to bring back the funk. Some have compared me to the likes of Frank Zappa, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Jack White, Beck, Daft Punk, Les Claypool, Josh Homme, Henry Rollins, Danny Elfman and David Grohl. Many have asked how would I describe my music, I just call it "Chloe's Pet Rhino". As an artist I'm very leery of putting labels on things, I say never judge a book by it's cover. Some have called me a breath of fresh air in a musical landscape void of artists willing to try anything a little different/new. I have been told my music sounds as if a Rhino just trampled into their ear hole and tap danced all up inside of it. I say- Thank you but I am just me, I am just a man with goals and dreams like everyone else- Freedom and Liberty to create artistic music!
....I love Loud Harley Davidson motorcycles, Loud Gibson Guitars and anything that will take down Zombies!!!
