Blog posts, latest news, and upcoming performances

I finally dusted off this site for a much-needed update. I added a bunch of more fun tracks of music I have composed in a more film-music style than I usually do. They are all inspired by DC comic book characters and the "Justice League". Yes you may catch a few Hans Zimmer nods in a couple of these.


I am proud to announce that I have been named as one of the winners of 2019 Bassoon Chamber Music Composition Competition. Dances with Quarks for bassoon and string trio was one of two works chosen to be performed on January 14, 2020 at Lynn Conservatory’s New Music Festival in Boca Raton, Florida. In addition to the performance, Dances with Quarks will be published by Imagine Music in the coming year, which will be my first non-self-published work!


Great news, the latest album by Dr. Jefferson Campbell, Pocket Grooves - New Music for Bassoon, Piano and Percussion, is now available on iTunes and Spotify! My piece Concertino for Bassoon and Electronics is one of the tracks featured on this recording by my life-long friend. I am excited it is now available on these services and I hope everyone will go check it out and purchase it there... or at least stream it thousands of times.
