All of the following is art that I have created, curated, and installed around Nashville in the past 4 years I've lived here.

New Wave Rebellion
Neurotic Sex Rock. Pure and simple mind boggling stage debauchery in the utmost polite manner.
A real life rock n' roll band, in an era that disregards creativity, fights the battle of stupidity and spreads the notion of happiness through awareness.
Out of the ashes of a few other projects, New Wave Rebellion formed in fall of 2012. "We just want to make good music, for good people, and constantly break the rules" said drummer Stephan Gubanov. With the help of the frantic Joshua Rawlings as the bass playing front-man & Dylan Wayman's enigmatic guitar work, New Wave Rebellion quickly began playing shows and building a reputation.
They have been capturing audiences attention with energetic sets at local clubs. Known for their heavy grooves and sudden changes in genre, they began writing what would become more of a production than an LP. Taking time to make sure that the music was thoroughly composed before a release. "The album is going to tell a story, maybe a cautionary tale, maybe one of redemption. You'll just have to listen close enough to figure it out."
Further Fest 2016
Further Farms had a specific vision in mind when we started working together again; this time on a much larger level. Though this was the most professionally challenging yet rewarding experience, through our creative and innovative collaboration, we managed to bring this vision to life with exceptional results - for both the short and long term.

Visual Artist Coordinator
I really enjoyed collaborating with this client, From overseeing the construction of the art gallery using all natural materials sourced from the farm to filling with with the best local visual artists and making the grounds aesthetically pleasing.
"Rhythm and Dance, insufficiently describes this eclectic band. Whilst in one moment BRONZi Blonde may draw from funk influences, in another they might slip into indie rock or tear into wailing vocals reminiscent of Jack White (along with blues-influenced doses of guitar and harmonica). Yet, regardless of the genre, the band still manages to incorporate hip hop beats and satisfyingly-drawling vocals into every track. They have mastered consistency whilst embracing the capacity for almost-endless sonic evolution...
...BRONZi Blonde...is a concoction of rhythmic, swagger-fuelled, manic, stoner-pop psychedelia; a drunken Beck rolling out pop hits with an understated shrug of his shoulders. But the band should ensure they match their hard-hitting lyrics with intoxicating melodies more often, because, when it works, it becomes impossible to resist repeated listens."
