A few bands I play in or have played in...

Quiet Arcs - Morphine Derivatives

Quiet Arcs is the first of two bands I currently play bass in.  We play eclectic hardcore/punk with '90s hardcore and grunge undertones.  Our newest album Morphine Derivatives was recorded by William Yip at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA.  We self-fund all of our releases and give them out for free on our Bandcamp page.  The Bandcamp page also has our previous records Grim Business and Electric Throne.

Cop Problem - Demo 2011

Cop Problem is the other band I currently play bass in.  Our sound falls somewhere between hardcore, punk, d-beat and metal, which is hard to really pin down.  We just finished recording our as of yet untitled seven-inch at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA with William Yip.  As of right now, we have our two-song demo available for download on our Bandcamp page.

Accident Prone - Demo 2009

Accident Prone was a short lived Straight Edge hardcore band I did for about a year around 2009 into 2010.  The core musical influences the band drew from are the classic '80s and early 2000 eras of hardcore.  This demo was recorded at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA with William Yip. Unfortunately, this is the only recording we ever released.

Crumbler - Dirty Weeks

Crumbler is a band I was involved with right after One Up broke up.  We played fast hardcore with a slightly grungy feel.  We self-released a demo and Bottled Up Records released our seven-inch titled Dirty Weeks.   The members went on to form the bands Aneurysm Rats and Quiet Arcs.

One Up - The More Things Change
Bandcamp -

One Up was an active band from 2002 until 2005.  We played fast traditional Straight Edge hardcore inspired by the '88 and '97 eras of hardcore.  This band took me across the United States of America twice and I got to meet a lot of great people at that time.  The More Things Change is my favorite of our records and to me it is the best representation of One Up's sound.
