I started making music as part of a hip hop band based in Fresno, CA called NOBTA. (Also somewhere on Reverbnation) After a year of writing, recording, and performing as part of NOBTA, I split from NOBTA and became a solo performer in March 2009. I recorded my first solo album in 2008, when I was still technically part of NOBTA, and I released my first solo EP in April, 2009. During the rest of 2009, I performed at open mics and a few actual shows around Fresno (and one in Sanger). I also continued writing songs that whole year, and eventually went and recorded all 32 of those for an album called "The Echo Street Blues" that I released in 2010. I wrote solo songs every so often in 2010, and performed dozens of open mics, and several shows around my local area. In 2011, I took some time off to write and record my third solo album. I went back to NOBTA, and we recorded our third album together as well. Right after that, I launched into writing and recording my fourth solo album, which I did in August 2011, and ended in November 2011. And now in 2012, I've recorded an album of previously recorded songs. I've posted some new versions of old songs on this page! And that about brings you up to date on everything. What's new with you?
