He has played bass with Quincy Jones, Dixie Chicks, Rosanne Cash, various 80's one hit wonders, symphony orchestras and chamber ensembles as well on Broadway (The Lion King, Rent, Spring Awakening and Hair). On several of his scores and albums, he has played all the instruments. Recently, he has played bass on other composer's film scores, trailers and video games including Wolfenstein. He has also been in demand as a multi-instrumentalist, especially on newly created boutique instruments, and is likely the only person on the planet who plays and owns a Marcodi Harpejji, a Guitarviol, a Slaperoo, a Suzuki Andes 25, a bass Uke, a ROLI Rise and a Veillette Gryphon.
