I was born in April in Florida. I live in Texas now.
Songs recorded in a converted garage with a couple of old mics and a Game Cube for a stand. Robert Svetlik played guitar on "A Day is Coming/ Living Underwater" and David Sandlin played tambourine on "A Day is Coming/ Living Underwater" and "Can."

For Sally Sitwell(2009)
A collection of pop songs, instrumentals, short snippets, and other audio things. It's split pretty evenly between solo multi-tracked songs and songs recorded "live" with one mic. Robert Svetlik plays acoustic guitar on "Crabs," "Spandex Heart," and its reprise. He also plays bass on the "Something" snippets and drums on "100 Umbrellas," "We Were (Two)," "Like Vultures," and it's instrumental coda, "Your Friends Fly Around." Tyler Humphrey sings on the songs where Robert plays acoustic guitar and Maxwell Layton plays bass on all songs Robert plays drums. Everything else is played by Benjamin Gleams.
is The Bower Boize in The Bower Boize or, "No Autographs, Please!"(2010)
Concept album as a R&B group called "The Bower Boize." The boys are 5'3" albino twins, one of whom, D, considers himself one of the best contemporary R&B singers. The other, J, is an aspiring rapper who D relegates to a hypeman position. When D takes a stab at a solo career things get heated. In addition to playing both brothers, I also voice their producer DJ Mr. Redwood who "produced" all the songs in GarageBand.
