• Billy Harvey – Songwriting Game practitioner and all-around awesome musician. Check him out, if only just for his site.
  • Blue Giant – Portland supergroup that does some serious rocking. Includes members from Viva Voce and The Decemberists.
  • Gomez – If you’ve known me long enough to be on this site then you probably already know about Gomez. If not, go to their site!
  • Rob Via – Former lead guitarist for End Effect and The RV Project. I’m slowly trying to get him to start playing some shows. So go comment on his Youtube videos and help me in my convincing.
  • The Black Keys – Guitar and Drums from Akron, Ohio. They should be a staple on everyone’s stereo.
  • The Decemberists – Portland group with some serious skillz. Picaresque is one of my favorite albums ever.
  • The Von Bondies – Detroit rock. Extra emphasis on the rock part.
  • Viva Voce – More goodness from Portland. Some of the nicest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.
  • The Winterbeards – Houston/Missouri music. These guys are good, and will be playing with me many times in the future….hopefully.


  • Borussia Dortmund – The random German soccer football team that I follow. Schwarz Gelb!
  • Unique Energy – Yoga, Reiki, and everything else the right side of your brain could desire, from a former co-worker of mine. Engineers doing non-engineer things always makes me happy.
