I’ve been purposely laying low lately. It’s been a really busy year with all the shows, trips and events and I decided after a particularly hectic month that I needed to scale back for a few weeks. It’s been nice, too for a couple of different reasons: 1) My little break has given me some […]

I was walking to El Zarape with Ashley for lunch (order the calamari burrito- seriously) and I had this thought in my head, as I often do. Or at least, try to. Anyway, the thought went like this (hit it): what if you modeled your life after the concept of “no waste”? I had that […]

A couple of really talented people are putting together a great music festival called AMP which is going to happen on September 17 at the Jacobs Center in San Diego. It’s always a lot of fun to be a part of these kinds of things but especially when there is so much support behind it! […]

San Diego Acoustic

Check out this interview I did with sandiegoacoustic.com. I know it’s a little “tl;dr” (too long; didn’t read) but hopefully this gives a little bit of insight to how conflicted and sarcastic of a person I am! Many thanks to Ken and Dave for reading, proofreading, editing and re-reading my thousands of words. Also, stay […]

When a person decides to “become a musician,” I wonder if they’re really ready for what that means. With all of the YouTube stars and American Idols running around these days, I find myself in a weird place. Mainly, from the outside looking in. I see the monumental success that some of those people have […]

The band and I are going to hit the San Diego House of Blues Main Stage on August 19! What a crazy thing to say out loud! This is going to be a part of the Local Brews, Local Grooves All Access showcase that features some of the best bands that have performed at the […]

Saw this documentary on Vimeo the other day when I was going through some growing pains. The first few minutes of the clip really spoke to me about how I’ve always seen music and where I want to go with it. I’m thinking about possibly changing the shirts to say something more along those lines […]

I’ve never been a confident person. In fact, more often than not, I fight little battles with myself and end up losing to the pessimist in me. It was getting pretty bad at one point that you could kind of tell that I have these weird internal struggles onstage, which is really not the time […]

It’s hard to believe that my little sister is growing up. Just this past weekend, Ashley and I went up to the Bay Area to see her graduate from high school (we were born eight years apart) and it was one of the most meaningful moments in my life to watch her walk across that […]

It’s funny how attached a person can get to material possessions. I’ve had my trusty silver 2001 Ford Focus since late-2004 and sadly, it was time for me to move on and send my little car off to greener pastures. Maybe it is because I’m another year older that’s making me so sentimental but thinking […]

One of my favorite people in the San Diego music scene is fellow singer/songwriter, Dave Boodakian (aka Dave Booda). While I don’t get to spend very much time with him, nor are we extremely close, I have watched him become a strong advocate for believing in one’s self. He has these philosophies about being successful […]

If you live around the Normal Heights area in San Diego, you may (on occasion) see me running around the neighborhood in a white t-shirt and short shorts, scaring all of the elderly folk around. Every once in a while, I’ll run up behind people who are also jogging or enjoying a nice stroll with […]

A few days ago, the new Foo Fighters album came out and along with it, torrents of music press pushing the angle that the Foos’ record label wanted us to see- namely, that Dave Grohl and the Foos are the most consistently good rock band in the world. Now, I feel myself wanting to start […]

It’s 6:22 am in Oahu, HI and I’ve been sitting in my room watching the sun rise directly outside my window. It’s the one time in recent memory that I haven’t been annoyed with myself for not adjusting to the local time. In fact the payoff is pretty great. It’s hard to beat a view […]

So maybe you knew this about me but I went to school and got a degree in Music. Yep, that’s right. I studied classical music for three years at UC Davis. Everything from JS Bach to CPE Bach and some stuff in between. While I was there, I was exposed to classical music of all […]

Bob Dylan

Lately, I’ve been really fascinated with folk music and folk singers like Bob Dylan and Paul Simon. Guys who just stood in front of a microphone with their acoustic guitars and sang. It’s funny because for the last three years, I’ve been watching people do that nightly and regrettably, I think the experience was often […]

It’s wonderful how you never get tired of seeing beautiful sunsets. I get to see them almost everyday and they always feel new and exciting. I’m so spoiled to live in such a lovely place where catching one of these views is really a matter of heading home from somewhere equally as beautiful. It’s a […]

CARYBROTHERS

In the spirit of full disclosure, I just wanted you know know that we are experiencing some speed bumps on the road to making the next album (already). Go figure. It’s bound to happen with any kind of production like this and mine is no exception. Sadly, our friend Jeff is leaving the band for […]
