- New EP: My good friend Jason Burkholder and I just completed a 4 song EP for our new band. The songs are all instrumental and you’ll find that it draws on our wide range of influences. Everything really grooves and there are elements of rock, funk, jazz, progressive rock, bebop, fusion, electronica/dance, and more in what we wrote. I played the main guitar parts, Jason did all bass and 8 string guitars on it. Jason’s friend Dave Twesme played drums on the session. We will soon be uploading the songs to a new site for our band and selling them. For a limited time, you can download them below for free!
