Who? What? Where?

Image of the studio

This documents my own musical activity, on stage and in studio. Big Quack Records is a private label for recording projects that I am personally involved in. I've done some recording for others, but I don't actively solicit studio work, nor do I "sign" bands.

Cabin Fever (2008)


"... maybe you'll find something reminiscent of grandma's smile, or uncle Joe's quirky sense of humor, or sister Sarah's knack for homemade pies. Look too hard, of course, and you'll find grandpa's jug out in the woodshed and some of those stories the grownups were whispering too low for us kids to hear behind closed doors."


Victims of Unbridled Ambition (2005)


The second record from the South Enders takes you to, in the words of spiritual advisor Skeeter Daddle,  "... a geography of the imagination where the porches go on forever, the jug is never empty, and the avant-gardens sprout weeds more exotic than any suburban flower."


Legends in Their Own Minds (2004)


This is the first record from The CD was recorded live at good ol' Quacky Studios and is released under the band's own South End String Brand label.
