Thank you for stopping by and checking out Instant Trash Productions. ITP is really just an outlet for my song writing and recording ventures.
I've been writing songs and recording since about 1979. You can check out my bio at my website.
I have played live for many years in many different bands, including The BellRays, but not as Instant Trash Productions. ITP is and will always remain a song writing and recording venture and never a full band.
My father was my biggest musical influence. He always played guitar and sang around the house when I was growing up. Some of my biggest influences as far as commercial artists go are The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Brian Wilson, Steely Dan, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, and Pete Townshend. Today I listen mostly to indie rock and jazz.
Nothing special, really. I have an Alesis QS6.1 keyboard, 1984 Fender USA Telecaster, 1998 Fender Mexi-jazz bass, and a few odds and ends.
I'm thankful for sites like SoundClick, Garageband, NoRecordLabel, CDBaby, and many others for keeping indie music accessible. Thanks for finding me here!
