Since 1989 I have been fortunate enough to have played in
some great bands and make a lot of friends along the way.
Music brought me from Vermont to Maine in 1993 when I was
in an early, 5-piece version of Riot Act. After almost 7
years in Riot Act and almost 6 years now in PRANA, I am
psyched to be gearing up for 2008 as the bassist for Strict9.
In the music biz, finding cohesiveness among band members
is more difficult than anything else. These guys have shown
me that they have the right attitudes and ideas to make
this a great experience for, not only me, but for anyone
who comes out to see us. I am proud to be part of a band
that cares so much about putting on the best show that they
can. And I can't wait to get THIS show on the road! KP-

...and like a bunch of cords, picks, and a broken tuner.
Geddy Lee...major scales never kicked ass before Rush!
Scott Bannevich (Edwin McCain "Honor Among Thieves")
Eddie Jackson- Queensryche (always used Spectors)

I lived in Nashville and those bass players are awesome!
And of course, James Jamerson (Motown legend)
"Music has brought
me everything in my life. I will always owe a debt of grattitude
to the people who have supported the projects I have been
involved with over the years. Not just the fans, family
and friends, but the musicians as well. It takes all of
us to make that magic happen." - KP
