I’m not going to write this in the 3rd person pretending that someone else wrote it about me because we all know that’s not what’s happening here. I’ve lived in Minneapolis my whole life but travel a lot for work… written songs on 3 platinum records and 2 Grammy winning albums, working with some pretty freaky people… Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Etta James, Paul Westerberg, The Replacements, The Warren Brothers, Joe Cocker, John Mayall, 3 Dog Night, Lynyrd Skynyrd, etc.
Signed my first publishing deal with Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller back in the ‘90’s, spent that decade just writing songs; expanded into engineering, producing and mixing in the 2000’s. Besides producing a ton of midwest things like Communist Daughter and The Replacements, I do a lot of music for film/tv, especially for ESPN.
Over the years I’ve hung out in LA and Nashville writing songs with Liz Rose, Kostas, Richie Sambora, Mark Hudson, etc… When I started producing it didn’t leave as much time for writing but lately I missed it so I’ve been doing more co-writing and meeting with publishers.
