So myself and my roommate and good buddy Danny Casler were both asked to do private auditions for the producers of the show The Voice. We had a blast singing for them, and who knows what will come of it. There were so many amazing singers, and it was just a really cool experience, so even if neither of us gets picked to go further and compete on the show, it was still a blast.
Aside from that, i am currently working on several projects, and can be seen live next on Sept 25th for a great show at The Roxy in Hollywood. I am playing guitar for my other roommates band Frequency 5 at their cd release show. And this will also mark the first time i have a played a show in Hollywood since October of 2006. Im super excited to get back out on stage, and can pretty much promise this will be a pretty consistent thing happening from now on.
I have taken off so much time from performing, and i really have a bug to get back out on the road, so expect to see some results fiarly soon. I will be working pretty much non-stop writing all new material in all of my free time. And the time im not using for writing/getting better at my instruments, i will be spending building my studio in my house. Lots to look forward to!
I cant wait to share some of these new creations with everyone. Talk soon!

I helped co-write a jingle and music video for the Shake Weight with a few friends, and we currently have a video in the running to be picked up on a national level. A lot of it is based on the actual song, video, melody, and creativity, but a portion of what is being judged is view count on our youtube video for it. Please click the link below and help us blow all of the other videos out of the water! It is a 1 minute video, and you don't even have to vote for anything, or register for any site. You literally just take 1 minute to watch the video, and you're done. With that one minute, you will have helped us out immensely! I will personally thank anyone who watches the video for their support in our efforts :) We did what we do best, which is goofy, over the top cheese ball antics. I hope you enjoy it!
PS: This is our initial video for the song, but there is an extended version coming at the end of the month that actually features me singing the choruses instead of the girl. There was a conflict in schedule and i couldn't track vocals before we needed to release it.
