I’ve been in the same freaking band since high school. Three Happenin Guys were formed by Chris McCauley, non-musician John Teschner, Clint Donaldson and myself back in 2000 or 2001. Who really knows? What matters is that from the moment of conception we were already the greatest band of all time. The band has carried on through several member changes, and we’ve gone to different colleges, lived in different states, but somehow managed to continue blowing everybody’s F’ing minds with our music for a decade plus.
I’m making most of our better recordings available to stream here for FREE(!). I may eventually add the older, more terrible stuff, but for now there is this. Enjoy the tunes, and be sure to check out our videos too.
Music I’ve Produced1>
My foray into music began with an obsession with recording. I was 16, or something, who knows, and I began F’ing around with tapes and a tiny 4 channel Radioshack mixer I was using to edit my videos with at the time. I began recording all kinds of sounds around the house and creating acoustic soundscapes, or whatever cool new-age name you would like to assign to a layered pastiche of field recordings. Eventually I brought other people into the process and from there we started poking around on instruments until we kind of learned how to play them.
I’ll get to the point; I got into making music because I was first into making audio. Sounds. I was interested in experimental sonics and acoustic textures and audio effects and being surrounded by a maze of wires and gizmos well before I could strum a chord on a guitar, and my interest in recording audio remains to this day. That’s why I love recording bands other than my own. Especially bands with unusual sounds of their own. Here are just a few of the musicians and bands I have invited into my studio to work with.
My SoundCloud Tracks
I like to use my SoundCloud page to fart out whatever musical idea I have in my head, improvise new jingles for big businesses while I stare at them from their parking lots, and share any other small music things I’ve worked on. It’s pretty terrible. Subscribe!
