Recording as Girls of the SEC

Girls of the SEC is a surf music project inspired by growing up in Panama City Beach, FL, as well as a fondness for acts like The Tornados, Santo and Johnny, and The Ventures. Learn more on the GOTSEC site and check out the record and a video below.

You Are All My People is a 3 song ambient music EP I recorded late in 2012. It's available on Bandcamp and can be streamed below.

Recording as Southern 

Southern was founded in 2010 by Patrick Copeland (Everett), Ryan Parrish (Hopesfall, | The Parallel |), and me. Aaron Ford (Bluetip, ... And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead, The Sincerity Guild) contributes drums.

Southern's "Cahaba" featured in a short about Bilenky Bikes for Bicycling Magazine .

Southern's "Wiregrass" and "Navarre" featured in SOMOS LUZ, a mini-doc by the Madrid, Spain, based art collective Boa Mistura about the foursome's time working and living in El Chorrillo, Panamá City.
