Since AM''s debut album was released on CD Baby, his music has been featured on 17 film and television shows including: HBO''s "Big Love", ABC''s "What About Brian", ABC''s "Life as we Know It" (starring Kelly Osbourne), and three seasons of MTV''s "Real World" including Austin, Key West, and Philly (where AM''s song "Losing You" made quite a splash). He has also been named LA Weekly''s "Best Singer/Songwriter of the year" and his official debut album entitled TROUBLED TIMES (retitled from AM)--will be available on October 31, 2006.

This year at the 2006 SXSW Music Fest, AM was one of four bands performing at the KCRW showcase--and the only unsigned band on the bill. He followed this showcase with a month long residency at the Hotel Cafe in Hollywood. And then AM was chosen to perform in an industry only, exclusive Billboard Magazine showcase at the Knitting Factory in Los Angeles.

The Mainstay Remix EP serves as an experiemental release which caters to the electronic and dance world, while still preserving the rich melodies and vocal nuances that make AM''s music so special.

Please give it a listen by checking out the sample tracks above.

“This artist has been compared to Beck and Coldplay and we can hear some REM references creeping in. Whether it’s AM or PM this artist deserves some of your time...and he is set to find a new audience in the UK.”
-The Hit Sheet (UK)

“Overall, this album demonstrates how great pop can be. AM has a real sense of how to set a chorus, and each one glistens and sparkles with extra instruments, synth pads and hooky guitar lines. With talent like this we’ll surely see AM climb the ranks to the top.”
-Performing Songwriter

“...AM takes equal parts of classic Americana, folk-rock and pop and melts them down into something entirely his own, and he does it with two things money can’t buy: imagination and taste. These sturdily built pop songs are graced with ingeniously colorful arrangements and have that ‘instant classic’ thing stamped all over them...”
-LA Weekly

“AM sounds like a mixture of Paul Simon and David Bowie. It rocks but in a beautiful way.”
-Gary Jules (Trading Snakeoil for Wolftickets/Universal Music)

"AM sounds like a cross between Mutations-era Beck and Pete Yorn and like them, he borrows liberally from country and rock, coming up with music that''s a little bit different and not easily defined"
-West Coast Performer

"AM’s soothing voice and polished stage presence have a calming effect, even on the rowdiest audience members. His soft rock, blended with a touch of country, connects with anyone..."
–Music Connection
******************************************************************************BEST SINGER/SONGWRITER OF THE YEAR (LA WEEKLY)

17 song placements from AM''s debut album have been placed in film and television, including AM’s song “Gone Away” in the upcoming eighth episode of Tom Hank''s HBO original series "Big Love” (now airing in the UK on Channel 5 on Monday nights at 10pm), “Mainstay” and “Playing The Game” in ABC''s "What About Brian?", and the songs "Losing You", "Playing The Game", and "Mainstay" in three seasons of MTV’s "The Real World" (including this season’s "The Real World: Key West"). AM’s songs can also be heard in the 2006 Sundance Festival film "Dreamland" (with Gina Gershon) and the film "The Naked Ape" which premiered at the 2006 Vail International Film Festival.

AM began his musical development surrounded by rock-n-roll but heavily influenced by the indigenous sounds of New Orleans which include country, bluegrass and roots music. Born in Oklahoma and raised in Mandeville, Louisiana, a rural town outside of New Orleans, he grew up playing guitar and listening to Motown, Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles. After graduating from Loyola University in New Orleans with a degree in philosophy, AM moved to Los Angeles where he held a weekly residency at the infamous Hotel Cafe then hosted by musical artist Gary Jules ("Madworld" Universal Music).

AM brings a new twist to pop music, following in the footsteps of other less obvious pop icons such as Beck, Wilco, and The Flaming Lips. Above all it’s AM''s uncanny ability for writing perfect acoustic-pop hooks and his soothing voice that really sell this wonderful debut record. From Americana to folk-rock, AM’s songs weave multiple variations of the pop medium with the richness of southern sounds.

AM has also shared the stage with such notable acts as Gary Jules, G. Love & Special Sauce, Bob Mould (Husker Du/ Sugar), Rhett Miller (The Believer/Verve), Amy Correia (Lakeville/Nettwerk), and Glen Tilbrook (former Squeeze songsmith).

AM is finishing his second album titled Soul Variations which will be completed soon.

Song placements in film and television for AM''s album include: HBO''s "Big Love", two songs on ABC''s "What About Brian", MTV''s "Real World", ABC''s "Life As We Know It", film sequel to "The Butterfly Effect", indie film "Naked Ape", and the 2006 Sundance Festival film "Dreamland.
