He releases and performs music under the band name Only Son and was previously the lead guitarist for The Moldy Peaches.
Only Son's debut album, "The Drop to the Top" (2006) includes "My Museum", "Long Live The Future", "Sleepyface" and "Brand New Broken Heart".
He toured the world in support of the album for two years opening for Regina Spektor and former bandmate Adam Green.

Only Son sophomore album, entitled "Searchlight", was released January 18, 2011.
He made seven videos from the album, including "Magic", (directed by VMA nominee Adria Petty), “It’s A Boy” (starring Boardwalk Empire’s Aleksa Palladino) and “Stamp Your Name On It” (featuring cameos by Macaulay Culkin and Reggie Watts).
We had a lot of fun making it and never thought in a million years that it would spread this fast to so many people around the world. Episode 2 is now out as well and we're excited to keep them coming throughout the year. I play dual roles as both "Uncle Gary" and "The Sultan", alongside Natasha Lyonne, Macaulay Culkin, Alia Shawkat, Devendra Banhart, Andrew Van Wyngarden, Zoë Kravitz and many more of my favorite actors and musicians.
