This Is The Now
This Is The Now is a glam rock band I formed under the alias Tiger G, an animated character who acts as a social critic. Famed producer/bass player Justin Meldal Johnsen plays on the recordings, which were started in LA and finished in Brooklyn, with Eli Janney mixing the EP. The band has released a couple of videos so far, both directed by the amazing illustrator Michael Arthur, and got some nice press.↓ Playlist ↓ Famous for Nothing ↓ I Wish I Was A Banker
Ripening is a dance-centric performance piece which I have been lucky enough to be working on over the past year, choreographed by Vanessa Walters, whose work I love from her shows with Fischerspooner. The show recently closed FlicFest at the Irondale in FT. Greene. This video, which was co-directed by Vanessa and Taxiplasm, was shown at Art Basel Miami and Dance Camera Now at Lincoln Center. Ripening is being produced by wife Cynthia Fieldus Salett.

Carriage House Sessions
In 2009 I collaborated with the Grammy nominated jazz pianist and all around great guy Larry Goldings for The Carriage House Sessions, a sparse and mellow duet record tracked in Silver Lake (at the Carriage House, with Sheldon Gomberg) and released in 2010. We wrote most of the songs together in my garage studio space in Venice, including the melancholic opening song "Love Falls Down" and the haunting Sondheim-esque "I Saw Her Face". There are also four standards on the cd, including "They Say It's Wonderful".↓ Playlist
Protect Insurance Companies PSA
In 2009 I collaborated with MoveOn.org and the website Funny or Die to co-produce a comedic issue oriented video around universal healthcare. I had approached my friend Laura Dawn (MoveOn's creative director) about the idea of having a march on Washington for universal health coverage, and she replied by saying that they were currently looking to make some viral videos. I contacted director Adam McKay from Funny or Die, who was game, and a few actor friends. The video received over 3.6 million views, major press coverage, and was shown in it's entirety on Keith OIberman's Countdown.↓ Video
