Poly Rush (2017)

Poly Rush explores the beauty and intimacy of acoustic music alongside the energy and power of electric instruments.  Polyrhythms are the answer, except when simple, unison guitar lines will do.

Empyrean Atlas (2013)

The initial spark for the music of Empyrean Atlas began one fine summer evening at the Prospect Park Bandshell in Brooklyn, listening to the legendary musician Thomas Mapfumo wind his way through one genius piece of music after another, accompanied by a band with one of the greatest feels ever heard. When you experience something that good, it’s hard to not try and respond. Finding similar inspirations in the music of Steve Coleman and Steve Reich, the seed that would become Empyrean Atlas was planted.
