For over 20 years, I’ve been writing and recording music in a number of genres. In addition to my album projects, I have done either composition or sound design for 24 theatre productions. I also offer music technology consults and recording services.
Growing up around my father’s amateur radio electronics experiments and Rolling Stones LPs, I acquired an interest in music and the science of sound from an early age. My father played guitar as a hobby. His mother – Francine (Trago) dePrisco – performed Gospel music on local television in Wilmington, Delaware in the 1970s. I can still remember being fascinated by this as a young child.
“One of the finest blues/roots musicians in the region!”– Alabaster Coffee Roaster & Tea Co.
As a bassist, guitarist and vocalist, I’ve been heavily influenced by progressive rock, folk, blues, acoustic blues, and many styles of music outside of the rock genre. At one point, I even toured with The Bodó Band, a Hungarian folk group, and recorded an album (Bloombsurg to Bangladesh) with Bengali tabla player Mostafizur “Bulu” Rahman.
Since the early 90s, I have been active as an arts event producer throughout NE and Central PA. Most recently, I’ve been a musical director for the Philly Maker Faire and also produce our podcast.
In 2010, I formed the Americana duo Fricknadorable, with my wife Audra (vocals/ukulele). Since then, we’ve been performing at repeat engagements at coffee shops, restaurants, farm markets, festivals, wineries, political fundraisers, and private parties.
