Well. I dropped my first single in like 5 years so I’m celebrating by giving away $100 cuz why not let’s have some fun people. Tune into the new jam and share it and get a little dough. Take it to the next level by doing a dance or something to the song for some style points. Tag me in your post so I see it and I’ll share it!

In the summer of 2010 I dropped my first ever all-original, self-produced album “The SLO Life”.  Today, almost 8 years later, this album has been published everywhere for your streaming nostalgia. CLICK HERE TO STREAM IT and listen to what got it all started. 1 minute preview video below.

I created a Spotify playlist.  Check it out.  I’ll update this frequently with past and present music I’m feeling.  There are 2 hours of music on “PJ’s Picks” to start, which gives you a bit of an insight into what influences my sound.

In 2017 on St. Patty’s Day I dropped a collaboration album with my good buddy Josh AKA Sulvida who also lives in San Diego. He is a talented producer and DJ.  Josh and I went to college together in San Luis Obispo at Cal Poly and he was my DJ during shows I did at this time.  Josh, who has an electronic background, brought all the production on this one and I handled all the lyrics and vocals.  I think we made a cool duo and our two different individual genres/sounds came together to create something unique. We called ourselves Clean/Cut and our debut EP project of six songs was called “The Line”.  Click HERE to go to our website and check out more. Check the video below of our live version of our single “Feel Something”.

I’ve been busy.  I’ve really missed interacting with you all on a daily basis, but it wasn’t without good reason.  I am back just as passionate as I always was, but dare I say a little more mature? I’d like to say wiser. Well we’ll find out.

Since the release of “Life Tonight” in 2014, my solo music took a bit of a back seat to other things in life.  I married Gaby that year and we started a life together in North San Diego.  I’ve lived throughout California my whole life and this is our favorite spot – it is tough to beat. I’ve raised Pax up to age 9 now, coaching him through sports and young boy life.  Gaby and I also had two amazing girls: Emma (almost 3) and Drew (almost 1).  Never a dull, or rather a moment without chaos until about 10pm when they’re all down.  I love them to death and now can’t imagine life without them.

Days are filled with my full time job as an engineering/construction project manager, which I really enjoy. Evenings are filled with family dinners, sports or school stuff, walks to the park/beach, and bath time, story time, and then bed time. Weekends are similar with even more kid action. Late nights or times when the girls are napping and Pax is chilling is when I dive into music.  You may see why the solo music creation hit a bit of a pause for a while as I focused on my family.  Below are a few pics of the fun.

Now that things are settled (and no more kids on the way) albeit still chaotic and my free time is limited, I’m back with a new original album and I think it’s pretty good.  I’m excited.  I hope you check it out and let me know what you think.  Album drops August 30, 2018.
