Music

From 2000 to 2004 I lived in Seattle, Washington and fronted the band Ultra Find as the lead singer and guitar player. Ultra Find was signed to Humble Rocks! Records, a small independent label I owned and operated with a lot of help from other friends and musicians in the post-grunge Seattle music scene.

Ultra Find’s full-length release, Seattle, New York, Los Angeles (2001) is available for preview and sale on iTunes: iTunes link. You can stream the album for free here: YouTube link.

From 2002-2004, Ultra Find appeared on a number of compilations, most notably those released by Humble Rocks! Records.

In 2003, Ultra Find recorded a new set of demo songs with Conrad Uno (Mudhoney, Sonic Youth, The Presidents of the United States of America) in preparation for a second album. However, the Ultra Find line-up changed and the record was never completed. The Conrad Uno sessions are available as a demo here: Ultra Find, “This Means More to Me Than You?

In 2004 I moved to Denver, Colorado, thinking I may go to law school to be an entertainment attorney. Ultra Find continued to play in Colorado in different interactions until 2007 when the band was officially placed on long-term hiatus (still on hiatus).

Also, in 2003, while still in Seattle, I was fortunate to tour as the bass player for the Boss Martians (Video of me playing with Evan at the Double Door Chicago: Travis Luther). As part of my time with Boss Martians, I traveled on the Winter/Spring 2002/2003 tours listed below:“MAKING THE ROUNDS” — SPRING TOUR 2003
