Born in Maryland 1975. Raised outside of Hartford and Philly. Moved to Boston in 1993. Put out my first tape in 1994 in a band called NO PEDDLERS with JONAH RAPINO. With this tape we started our label MASSIVE DISTRIBUTION which has continued to put out our and our friends
jams, totaling about 100 today.
Met TOM HOHMANN and J.K. in 1996 and formed BULLROARER. BULLROARER played for 4 years, put out a few records, played with rad bands, and with it I did my first touring.BULLROARER broke up after our first nationwide tour in 1999.
I moved to Charlottesville, Virginia 1/1/2000. Me and Tom started USAISAMONSTER.USAISAMONSTER left Cville in mid 2001 for as much touring and music making as possible. We moved to New York City in 2003. Throughout the band’s 9 year existance we went all around the USA many times, Europe and the UK 5 times each, Japan, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Canada. We made 7 LP’s. USAISAMONSTER split in 2009.I got a home recording set up in 2007 and have produced and engineered records for JONNY CORNDAWG, JIMMY COUSINS, SHADES,USAISAMONSTER and others.
I’ve done a few art shows over the years, both curating them and making stuff at MOUNTAIN FOLD, BEE BOP, and THE BRIDGE.What I’m up to now…I started COLIN L. ORCHESTRA. Its a loose group of musicians playing my mellow minimal country music and whatever else I wanna play. It can be 14 people, a trio, or me alone. Its a vehicle to get the music out and the recordings realized.The Orchestra became a pretty steady working band starting in October 2010. NORTHERN SPY put out 2 records for me in spring 2011 – INFINITE EASE / GOOD GOD. I’m currently working on the 3rd part of this psychedelic yacht rock comfortable soul jam trilogy.
I also play in CSC FUNK BAND and ALIEN WHALE and am dabbling in commercials, film scoring, and electronic music. I have partnered up with ELI WINOGRAD and we run a studio in Brooklyn, pooling our equipment and collaborating heavily.
