This @knower_music mini tour was super inspiring for me. From the moment I moved to LA, it was a dream and a mission of mine to try and play with Louis and Genevieve; however, I don’t think I could’ve known how absolutely inspiring it would be. These 2 have the work ethic of Kobe and Jordan, and are both an absolute joy to be around. Along with the incredible musicianship of @jacobmannmusic and @pettergrinchenolofsson and one of the best tour moms around in @rosannafreedman , this was one of the most fun weeks I’ve had in years. Now, I’m headed from one inspiring tour to another (after a few long flights from Italy to the US)....see you TONIGHT, Atlanta, with @coryhenry and the #FunkApostles !!! #tourlife #ineedanap
Synth-life with @knower_music tonight in Lausanne 📷-@teodordumi

Tour with these geniuses starts today. So hyped to play these tunes with @knower_music !!!! #synthlife #nerdpower
One more show tonight in Buffalo with the #funkapostles before I head out for a bit with @knower_music. So much good music going on! #coryhenry 📷-@matt_dangelo
I had an absolute blast filming this video for the new @dsisequential #ProphetXL . Check the link in my bio for the full video, and shoutout to @domi_keys , @peterkeys88 , and @glasysmusic for crushing it as well! #davesmithinstruments #sequential #synthnerdery #synth #gearybusey
This is a short example of how I combine descending/ascending bass lines with a melody to create re-harmonization. I exemplify this with a clip of one of my philosophical/intellectual heroes @ericrweinstein showing off his mandolin skills. (PS - I have a day off from tour tomorrow and will be teaching Skype lessons, so message me for pricing/availability. Thanks y’all! #ericweinstein #idw #yamahasynths #reharm
I think this counts as jazz. Thanks, Boston, we had a blast! #coryhenry #funkapostles 📷- @huberjonathan
Just a little bit of piano last night in Lancaster, PA. #coryhenry #funkapostles #yamahasynth @yamahasynths_official 📷- @e_sharp_90
Always great to see the legends @parrisbowens and @jamespoyser at a show....so much great music has come from these two gentlemen!!! #keyboard #heroes #InsertOreoJokeHere
I have a new battle station for this tour, y’all. @dsisequential #prophetX @yamahasynths_official #yamahamontage
In 2 days, I head out for about 2 months of tour with 2 of my favorite bands on the planet. I’ll be starting and ending with @coryhenry and the #thefunkapostles and I’ll do a few weeks of European @knower_music shows in the middle. This is going to be epic. #SynthExplosion
Got to meet one of my absolute fave musicians of all time last weekend (and spoke with him about working together in the future)....the legend @vanhunt !!! I still remember the first time I heard “Out Of the Sky” when I still lived in Lincoln....the part at the end where the horn stabs come in and about ended my life. Then, a few years ago, he releases “The Fun Rises, The Fun Sets” which has influenced almost everything I’ve done since I heard it. This man is an absolute legend and I’m excited to possibly make some music with him!!! Thanks to the man @darujones for dragging him out of the house :-)!!! #vanhunt #thebest
Many folks hit me up to ask me what I’m listening to or currently inspired by. Therefore, I decided to start curating a monthly playlist of what I’m listening to. Follow my new artist page on Spotify to join this playlist, and while you’re there, check out my new beat-tape ;-)
