I'm always down for collaborating with my fellow SoundCloud artists, so please hit me up if you're interested in working together on an original song or remix! So far I've had the honor of working with these awesome folks listed below. Please listen to, follow, and share their music...
Since joining SoundCloud, I've had the pleasure of listening to several amazing tracks! Here is a list of artists who I've developed connections with, whether that means collaborating or simply providing consistent feedback and/or support on each other's tracks. I'm also a huge fan of their original music, so each of these artists have my highest recommendations!
Also, please follow and listen to soundcloud.com/darkhumor, an Internet-based band that I've been working with on and off since high school (2005). We recently released a 6-song EP, for which I played bass and co-wrote/arranged a couple of songs!
