Hey y'all! Sitting here in my normal morning get up (ok it's afternoon by now). Coffee in hand and way overdue for an update. We've been going steady here at the Cave with some cool projects to start the year!

Started January off with Cambodian Star, Laura Mam. We've been workin' on tunes together for a few years and the songs are absolutely TAKING OFF in Cambodia. She's been pushing original music out there and even started a contest for songwriting.


After my project with Laura I jumped into a 7 song record with Late Night Revival, a killer indie/pop band from Riverside.

Spent two solid weeks on this one. Co-writing and dialing in some serious tones. It was definitely one of my favs so far this year. Album comes out later this year. In the vein of Walk The Moon, The 1975 and St. Lucia. Expect big things from these guys soon!
 

After this one I took a little break from production and went on the road for 3 weeks playin' some bass for YouTube star Ricky Dillon. Was a blast meeting a bunch of new friends and collaborating with different artists.

As soon as I landed I jumped STRAIGHT into a 4 song EP with Orange County rock band Them Evils. This one was so much fun. These songs are hard hitting, gritty, soulful and rough around the edges. This band is going to be huge. For fans of Rival Sons, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Queens of the Stone Age.

My most recent project that I wrapped was with up and coming R&B, indie artist Jessica Domingo from Seattle, WA. We've spent a good few months re-defining her sound and started an entire re-branding process. We've really created something we both are in love with it sounds so fresh and original. Her new EP comes out in a few months co-written from the ground up here at my studio. Dreamy R&B with a fuzzy analog edge. Be on the lookout for new stuff soon. For fans of Alina Biraz, Banks, Drake, The Weeknd, NAO.
