Bands / Musicians
- The Skinny - myspace.com/skinnystrings
A wonderful new-timey, alt-bluegrass band featuring my brother Mike, Tanya Brown, and Koralie Hill. Everyone plays several instruments, sings, and writes songs, and the shows are a hoot. I get to tag along and throw some mandolin into the mix every now and again...
- Hot Buttered Rum String Band - www.hotbutteredrum.net
Featuring Oversoul band mates Zac Matthews (mandolin) and Bryan Horne (contrabass), HBRSB is taking the acoustic jam scene by storm!
- Chris Haugen - www.chrishaugen.net
Chris is a long time friend and collaborator. We met when he was playing with Jambay, and he has since
moved on to touring with a wide variety of big names. Most recently we've been working on some songs for
Kate Gaffey and Larkin Gayl.
- Jill and Steve Pierce (Music for Children) - www.musicforchildrenca.com
Jill and Steve are incredible artists, and also run a series of music classes for young children,
teaching kids fundamentals of ryhthm, melody, and expression, to develop true "musical intelligence"
from an early age. Can't say enough about them, their music, and their classes.
- Lee Simpson - www.leesimpson.net
A King Harvest band mate and now solo musician. Lee and I have been songwriting and performance
collaborators for many years.

- Oasis CD Manufacturing - www.oasiscd.com
Not exactly an "Equipment" manufacturer, but the greatest CD Replication and support company around, hands down. A pleasure to work with, and great product!
- Taylor Guitars - www.taylorguitars.com
I've been playing my 1991 Taylor 410RW (Rosewood back and sides) since it was new. Bob Taylor and his
company have joined the big leagues now (and were just breaking in back then), and I can't say enough
good things about this instrument and his whole product line.
- Collings Guitars - www.collingsguitars.com
In 2000, I bought a Collings SJ (small jumbo) and I didn't put it down for a month. Bill Collings is a
- Speck Electronics - www.speckelectronics.com
I use the Speck channel strip both in my studio rig and as a DI / preamp for my acoustic when I perform.
- Audio Technica - www.audiotechnica.com
AT makes great mics. Other stuff too, but I have their mics, and I love every one -- 4050, 4051, and Pro37. You can't beat the price, and you won't believe your ears.
