Corn Mo played in a jazz band. Then, a country band. Then, he did a recording session with another country band for a Kentucky Fried Chicken song contest. Then, he played in a rock band called Illusion. Then, he played a SIEL OR400 in a metal band called Without Warning. Then, he fronted another metal band called Tiruth. And then, high school was over and he found an accordion. So then, he joined a juggling troupe and provided a soundtrack for the jugglers. When that ended, he started a duo with another fellow named Mauve Oed. They opened for Tiny Tim. And then, Mauve Oed left. Then, he used his OR400 synth for an art rock band called The Dooms UK. And then, they faded. And then, he started .357 Lover which became the band of what he tried to convey as solo artist. He decided to do both. Then, he joined a sideshow circus called The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus. He began touring and having adventures. He went to Alaska and played accordion for his aerialist girlfriend. He went to Europe with a circus cabaret and played on the streets. He opened for The Polyphonic Spree. They had an extra bunk. In order to ride on the bus he had to join the band. So, he opened for them and then put on a robe after his set. He enjoyed that band. Then, The Polyphonic Spree and toured with David Bowie. That was a good time. He hugged Bowie. And then, he left the Polyphonic Spree. After that, he toured with a burlesque group. They were pretty. And then, he did some shows with David Cross, Ben Folds, Wheatus and They Might Be Giants. It has been an excellent time for him. And it keeps getting better.

“Corn Mo . . . makes music that
actually holds up on its own.”
– Neil Strauss, New York Times
“Corn Mo has one of
the most beautiful voices and natural charms
I’ve ever experienced. He is a grand man.”
- Andrew W.K.
“Corn Mo is the future of rock.”
– Kirk Miller, Rolling Stone
“Corn Mo uses this quirky soundscape to compose mini-anthems, heroic passages and chaotic polkas. If his spiritual father is Freddie Mercury, then his spiritual uncle is Tiny Tim.”
