Ben C and I were brought together by producer/engineer Kris Farm in late 2003 at Oregon State University. The band Maryspeak put together an original album of Ben's songs and called it *Tiny Blue Dot*. It was finally released to Spotify in mid-2022. A follow-up album is currently in the works, with sessions in Los Angeles planned for December 2022 and in Portland in February 2023. I am in a surprisingly natural role here, no songwriting but lead guitarist and harmony vocalist. Ben C and I will duo up to play acoustic sets around Oregon, and our power quartet is rounded out by original drummer Chris Harver and OSU-alum sensible bassist Charlie Norris.
