JP_RedZone1I’m a percussionist and singer with over 20 years of experience in the former and 9 years of experience in the latter. My current, main projects is the filthy feminist punk rock duo that is Damsel Trash, alongside Meghan Rose. I also play drums for Meg’s other project, Meghan Rose & the Bones (now the Loud Soft Loud). DT is on Facebook and Bandcamp. Or take a gander at our first music video.

I’ve played with the alt-country group Little Red Wolf since 2008, though we’re currently on hiatus. You can check us out at the following links: Little Red WolfReverb NationFacebookTwitterBandcampCD Baby

I’m also a sometime-camp counselor and instrument instructor for the Madison chapter of Girls Rock Camp, which is an amazing organization with chapters nationwide and I highly encourage you to get involved and/or lend your support.

Past bands have included The Shabelles, Aporia, Forte Diem, Milk, A Catapult Western, TNF, and several cover projects (Le Swimsuit Manslaughter, The Heroins, Ramona, and the Sad Puppies (Sarah McLachlan)).

I’ve had the pleasure of providing percussion for several community and professional musical productions, including Stage Q’s production of “Batboy,” Mercury Players Theatre’s productions of “Walmartopia” and “Revenge of the Mini-Musicals,” Edgewood College’s production of “Brother Can You Spare A Dime?” and several others.

And last but never lease, I enjoy the dubious (see: awesome) distinction of sitting in on drums now and again for the industrial act Caustic and the new beat/retro EBM of Klack.


I’ve been DJ since I got my first pair of Numarks back in the ’90s, though these days I’m loving the digital controllers. You can catch me around Madison at venues like Robinia Courtyard, Crucible, Natt Spil, Nomad World Pub, and Tavernakaya, Queer Pressure parties, and more – or online at my Soundcloud and Mixcloud pages. I mostly spin house and its various sub-genres, with occasional forays into alt hip-hop, downtempo, and industrial/darkwave and breakbeat.
