FBGM “Dog Collar / Fan” Vinyl Record, 2017

FBGM is my band – a songwriting duo with my friend D. Orxata. I’ve wanted to release music on vinyl since I first started playing in bands in high school but for one reason or another I just never could make it happen… until now! We are 100% independent and completely self-funded. This means we wrote, performed, recorded, and mixed each song ourselves. We spent months working on them. One of the fondest memories I have is recording D’s vocals for “Fan” in our rehearsal space very late on Christmas Eve 2016. It felt good to be working on music…

Bloody Henry, 2016

I composed, performed, and recorded all the music for a short film called Bloody Henry, which premiered at Independent Film Festival Boston in April 2016. Though I’d done music for TV and web commercials before, I’d never attempted a film score. This was a horror film with a real artistic bent. I was glad to have the opportunity. I brainstormed for months with director Jean-Paul DiSciscio (Overdue Films) about the musical direction for the film. I started generating ideas at my home studio and would go over to JP’s house every couple weeks to test how they “felt” alongside the…

Smalls Artisan Mini Potatoes, 2014

This is a web video for Wada Farms’ Smalls Artisan Mini Potatoes. I was commissioned by James & Matthew to write and record the music for this video. The decided direction for the music was dirty sounding indie-pop. I used the production of Bright Eyes’ “Loose Leaves” as inspiration and wrote an instrumental that made me think of forward movement mixed with the feeling of the comfort of home. I recorded & mixed all of the instruments at my home studio, using a combination of Ableton Live and Adobe Audition. The web video features the full 60-second version, but I…

The Tale of the Landlord & Broker Web Video, 2013

I wrote, performed, and recorded the music for this web video, which was created by James & Matthew for IC Credit Union. This is one in a series of fun videos aimed at tackling the financial issues of Gen-Y. I collaborated with Matt Maguy on writing the lyrics and main melody for this one. I recorded & mixed all of the instruments and vocals at my home studio, using a combination of Ableton Live and Adobe Audition. This campaign received one local and two national awards and helped IC Credit Union get to number seven on the list of credit…

Budgeting in B Minor Web Video, 2012

I wrote, performed, and recorded the music for this web video, which was created by James & Matthew for IC Credit Union. This is one in a series of fun videos aimed at tackling the financial issues of Gen-Y. As a budgeting enthusiast, I was able to speak from the heart on this one while writing the lyrics :). I recorded & mixed all of the instruments and vocals at my home studio, using a combination of Ableton Live and Adobe Audition. This campaign received one local and two national awards and helped IC Credit Union get to number seven…
