Biography

“I was a classic high school loser, sitting at home while my parents and brothers and sister went out on weekends. At some point my sister had given me some warped records (she left them on the heater at college), and these were my earliest influences. I’d usually watch “The Love Boat” and “Fantasy Island,” then wander over to the piano and write songs about space. Not emptiness, but like, outer space.

At some point I went to college in Philadelphia, did some music there (I was in an a cappella group called Off the Beat – yes, I know it’s a terrible name – and a killing rock band called Thriphtway named after a grocery store), and started writing songs in earnest while majoring in music composition (even took a class in Debussy and Bartok with George Crumb – only modern music dorks will know who that is). One song from a little production deal I had with Ruff House Records (think Digable Planets) in Philly wound up on my first album, Careen.

I moved to Los Angeles ‘cuz I didn’t really know where else you could make a living as a musician, and soon found myself working as a composer’s assistant and writing my songs in off hours. Made my first album during these off hours, and started playing shows and being a musician for real, kinda late by most people’s standards.
