NEW NEWS:

Well... I'm in the thick of it for sure.  Here's the recap of what's been on going.

Sponsors for the 2017-2018 LoopFest season are in!  Henretta Engingeering, Option Knob, are joining the family. We are proud to have them on board. And Morley Pedals is back for another season!  Gear reviews of their products are coming soon!

O.M.N.I. has been very active.  The 2nd video is up: Elite Soldiers of the Berdan Army.  Tune into the CDBaby Page for the narrative in the Space Adventures of Captain Funktion.  Other news: 5 days and many hours of recording at Chai-Fi Studios in Brooklyn, New York has birthed what will eventually be a dub-tastic release from O.M.N.I. with new twists: synth-pop, vocals, and sexy jams all added to the electro-dub experience.  It was an intense bit of time with O.M.N.I. partners Zach and Ben cranking out tracks.

Right now I'm in the middle of the One Human Band Festival in Pittsburgh, PA. This experience is the brain-child of vocal looper Mike Why who has custom assembled a line-up of amazing musical talent: myself, Butch Ross, Dixie Duncan, Brian Fitzy, Kaila Mullady, SaulPaul, Tonee Violincelloops, Jean-Paul De Roover, Mike Why, and some local artists all are delivering 5 days of performances around the city.  http://www.OneHumanBands.com  Lots of shows through the weekend are coming up!

For all the gear heads, here's a fun wrap up video from NAMM that I made featuring some very interesting electronic gear.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlfuig4mJbk
