NEWS   Sorry, most of the stuff on this page isn't very representative of my playing as of late. The most recent solo on Just Friends was recorded about 7 or 8 months ago. Hopefully I'll be getting newer stuff up here soon. Stay tuned.

College student playing jazz guitar whenever he can.
Why this name?
It's a rip off of a Kotzen tune called "Groove Epidemic"
Do you play live?
I play live in the Thursday 5:30 jazz combo at the University of Virginia

I also play with a folk/prog rock band called Mickey Biscuit and the Jefferson Christ Action
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
By leaving more talent out there to be discovered.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Maybe in a few years.
Band History:
As is obvious in my older recordings, I went through the whole shredder phase in my earlier teen years. I was introduced to jazz fusion by the likes of Frank Gambale and Greg Howe when I was a junior in high school and decided to pursue that style until I graduated. Once I started playing jazz in college I was immersed in bebop/post bop/hard bop, etc. and that's the kind of thing I shoot for these days.
Your influences?
Andreas Oberg, John Coltrane, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Wayne Krantz, Greg Howe, Jimmy Raney, Bireli Lagrene, Pat Martino, Tommy Flanagan, McCoy Tyner, Wayne Shorter, Joe Henderson, Dexter Gordon, Charlie Parker, Tim Miller, Tim Goynes, John Scofield, Mike Stern, Tal Farlow, Michael Brecker, and any other creative, inventive, and melodic bebop
Favorite spot?
Charlottesville, Virginia
Equipment used:
The older recordings on here were done with an Ibanez JS100 w/ Dimarzio PAF Pro and Tone Zone (PAF in neck TZ in bridge) pickups, into a Behringer V-Amp2, first into a crappy onboard soundcard, then later into a SoundBlaster Audigy LS.

The newer stuff has been recorded with a PRS Standard 24 into a Line6 POD XT, into the same Audigy soundcard.
