New release – on top of the world

New Gods Part 2
Out now!

 "This isn't a pop song, in that it lacks the classic hook, bridge and chorus formula. Rather it's my attempt to pay homage to the likes of Genesis, Led Zeppelin and progressive rock. It's lyrically about the odd societal strife we find ourselves in today. I suppose you can say it's musically and lyrically a bit dark." —Robonzo

I knew I wanted to be a musician when I saw The Rolling Stones on TV as a young boy. I never reached the heights of rock stardom, but I did become an in-demand drummer for the better part of two decades in Dallas/Fort Worth and the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2016 I relocated to Panama where I’m connecting with a new music community, and making plans for in-home audio and video music projects. I’ve always considered myself a musician-for-hire, which is why I’ve always maintained a collection of my recorded works. It’s stuff I’ve done over the course of several years, but I think it gives a decent picture of who I am as a player.

I also love talking to and learning about other musicians. Hear those conversations on
