I currently perform in a number of bands on various instruments.
Blind Willies plays original songs written by guitarist-singer Alexei Wajchman, a soulful mix of rock, folk, jazz, and blues that fits comfortably within the wide arms of alternative Americana. After releasing two acclaimed albums as an acoustic duo, “The Unkindness of Ravens” (2007) and “Everybody’s Looking for a Meal” (2008), Blind Willies is now a band of five eclectic and accomplished young musicians: Wajchman, drummer Adam Coopersmith, cellist Misha Khalikulov, keyboardist-trumpeter Max Miller-Loran, and bassist Daniel Riera.
The Congress is a musical collective founded by trumpeter Marcus Cohen. Drawing from the rich musical heritage of Jazz, R&B, and Hip-Hop and featuring a diverse cast of musicians, The Congress delivers soulful and nourishing performances. I play the flute and EWI (wind synthesizer) with this group.
