Happy Thrash!
Equivalent of equal or greater value . . .
Guaranteed: safe space for creativity.
If minds make music, how 'bout a gang keen to producin'?
In other words, let's start the New Cartel!
Street corners to hot blocks. Penthouse parties, be patient.
Juntos . . . let's tap into the Land of Enchantment.
Unlimited, really. Work and leisure, all in one.
13+ years experience attempting harmony with musicians of many methods.
I play guitar, drums (or percussion), harmonica, some piano, and hand flute. I also sing, write, dance, and beatbox.
Sometimes I do other things, too.
You'll get cooperation from me.
Influences include: things I've experienced (or think I have), my current experience, deciphered images from my future experience. Sounds, Words, Compassion, Focus, Risk, Nourishment, Connections, Choices, Progression, Systems, Roots, Freedom, Destiny, Taboo, Balance, Us, Excuses, Simplicity, Chaos, Sense, Truth.
Artists in my rotation right now: Devendra Banhart, Mouse on Mars, Cocteau Twins, MGMT, Vampire Weekend, Mazzy Star, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Magnetic Fields, etc.
Don't be fooled when you listen at:
Got somethin'?!
Por favor, drop me a line.

This is a great group!  Art should be born from the necessity of society.  In January, we are producing a show that benefits Animal Humane of New Mexico; come check us out.
