Drums and Percussion
Flame Tree featuring Nik Turner, an album of free-form psychedelic music that marries elements of rock and jazz, has been released on Cleopatra Records. The band Flame Tree was put together at the suggestion of Nik Turner (Hawkwind, Inner City Unit), a project that began in 2009. It features Nik playing tenor saxophone and flute, experimental/progressive rock guitarist Dennis Rea, and bassist Paul "PK" Kemmish. Barney Bubbles inspired artist Nazar Ali Khan did the album art. The CD is available at fine record stores or at the Cleopatra Records website here. I am also currently working with the space rock collective Spirits Burning, contributing drums and percussion on the albums Make Believe It Real, Starhawk, and most recently The Roadmap In Your Head. These albums feature stellar work from members of the Hawkwind and Gong families, among others. To hear the tune "Revenant," click here.
I am recording and performing with jazz-infused psych rock trio Fraktal Phantom, which features D.C. area guitarist Sean Fisher and bassist/vocalist Cary Kindberg. We have one EP released entitled Live In The Studio. I am also recording and performing with the psychedelic/prog rock band Spectral Waves, a band that features the guitar work of Simon Henneman and Dennis Rea, and Cary Kindberg also on bass and vocals. I have also worked closely with original Heart guitarist and Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Roger Fisher, and we have two album releases with free-form jazz group The Acoustic Reign Project.
