I've been writing music ever since I started playing, which was 1996. I would go to my best friend's, Evan, house and practice bass guitar. I got my first treble guitar Christmas 1997. Evan and I started jamming, improvising, writing and recording. He still has around 10 songs I tabbed out on some old yellow, college-lined paper from way back when. We parted ways once I joined the USArmy. After I was discharged, I hooked back up with Evan. And, one of my other good friends, Edward (A.K.A. Bam), introduced me to a drummer, Brandon (2003). 

Evan was attending the University of Evansville at the time, so he eventually had to hang it up. Good on him, too. To say he's doing well would be a vast understatement. Anyhow, Brandon and I continued on, bass players came and went. Jeff, Cara, Jared (Ol' Toner Lonerz, "just-a sittin' 'round in the dark". We'll come back to him later ... ), to name a few.

The bass players never stuck around long enough, but Brandon and I managed to play several shows, duo-style. Two shows I'll always remember: The show at Seeker's Coffee House (Now a Sprint Store), and the Owensboro Open Mic. One word, two syllables: Unreal. 

Brandon and I took a trip down to Nashville, TN ... within 5 minutes of walkin' the beat downtown, I knew it was where I needed to be. 

Brandon had to do his fatherly duties, so I moved down south, solo (2004). I rocked out with a kick-ass metal band comprised of 50-year old metal heads and played the Blue Bird Cafe all within my first few weeks down there. 

I jammed with a lot of bands and people and eventually hooked up with one of two people I co-wrote songs with: Eric Milholland. He and I wrote around 40 songs in a few months. Unfortunately, due to work drying up (Literally. There was a bad drought during he summer of 2005) and a sound engineer with a serious cocaine problem, nothing got recorded ... 

So, I moved back to Evansville in 2006. Not a month later, I hooked back up with Jared (Ol' Toner Lonerz, 'member!?!?!). We wrote around 20 songs after a few months (I still play and perform a more than  few of them, too!!!).

Now, wouldn't ya know it, Jared went to a Breaking Benjamin concert and ran into Brandon (2007). Jared didn't have enough room in his house, but his parents were gracious enough to let us practice in their garage. To this day it's the 2nd best practice spot I've ever had (we'll get to the first in a bit).

We practiced then played shows (The iCafe, and Audiobash in Petersburg stand out). But, sadly, Brandon would come and go to often. Including during our album recording with Zach Grace of Mock Orange (2009), and our shows at Boney June's ('member?), T.J.'s Stockyard and our 10-year High School Reunion (2010). Luckily my brother, Miles, was there to step in when we needed him (much, much love, bro!!!). We did manage to score a singer, Amanda Carroll (Mina Fedora) and get a couple of songs recorded with her. But due to travel constraints she had to call it quits after about 3 months or so.

Brandon, Jared and I did our last show together at Garvin Park (2011) in Evansville, IN. Damn good show, and damn good turn-out, too!!! Right after that, I reunited with my best friend, Ryan Twycross. He introduced me to Russell Whitaker Jr., A.K.A: Roll-Master Russ. Easily one of the most talented people I've ever met. Like my brother, he possesses the ability to play bass guitar and drums at a high, and equal, level of skill. Russ, Jared and I played together for the good majority of 2012. We played Lamasco's and Garvin Park again. But, once again, $h!t happened. Jared lost his lust for music, and we're back to trying to finding a bass guitarist. Luckily, Russ knew someone, ... Michael McCord (Weasel, The Weez, Mikolini Gorbachini).

We practiced about another year together at one of his friends', Munkey & April, house. Then later on at another of his friend's, Jeff King, detailing shop (#1 practice spot, ever! Thanks again, Jeff!!!). Though, we as a three-piece never perfomed live, Michael and I did at Doc's (Stringtown Rd., Evansville, IN). But, that's right, you guessed it, Mike wasn't all into playing the bass and left before the year was up (2013).

Yet again, Russ came through with one of the most "real dudes" I've ever met: Sean Bull (2014-2015). We've been playing together ever since and are currently working on recording a studio album (2017-2018) with Steve Tyner from Black Cat Recordings. A few instrumental tracks from the album are on the page here. We're still looking for a singer. So, if you know anyone who would fit the bill, send them our way!!!
