The Adaptive (Full Band) Live In Portland, January 2017!

The Adaptive at PSU Live at Lunch (Event Page on Facebook)
All 2017 Shows

The Adaptive will perform live at PSU, January 19, 2017, as a five-piece band!

Shane Cotee – Electric Guitar, Electronic Mixing
David Watson – Percussion
TJ Martin-Lokey – Drums
Kyle Camacho – Electronic Mixing
Kevin Tool – Acoustic Guitar

After a very successful weekend at Imagine Music & Arts Festival (Orcas Island, Washington), word spread quickly about this newfangled live/electronic/jam project. The Adaptive was performing as a full band for the first time. Praises reached someone at Portland State University (thanks Patrick!) and a show was booked. The word on the street is that their sound system will be amazing, and the whole thing will be professionally recorded (video and audio). We hope to see you there!

We plan to pursue more full band performances at colleges in the near future. Let this be the beginning of something traditional.

The Adaptive and Metamorphosis Contribute New Song to Fundraiser Album

Track 8 of this beautiful new compilation is a song I recently made with the legendary European ambient/chillout artist known as Metamorphosis as part of a benefit album for Romanian children.

Please have a listen and pitch in for a great cause, if you can afford to!

Five new songs released on “Ancestors EP”

I recently published my new five-song EP on Bandcamp. Next up, it will be on its way to iTunes, Spotify, and nearly everywhere else you can get new music.

Each song is very unique from the next, and I suppose that’s appropriate when you consider the name of this project. I’m always experimenting with different sonic flavors, and this release holds nothing back. Have a listen on Bandcamp or Soundcloud:

Hear my hard ethnic trance song “Duality” Live at Munduzer 2016!

Munduzer is a new festival based near Phoenix, Arizona. I was thrilled to headline a new music & arts festival like this one, in my original home state. We had a blast out in the desert and it didn’t take long before Munduzer announced its return next year.

Here’s a recording (directly from my on-stage mixer) of one of my heaviest and favorite songs to play live, “Duality.”

Duality and my entire “Evolve” album is available to download for free at Bandcamp:
