M. R. Kessell started out as a punk kid, playing punk music, in punk bands, in his home state of New Jersey. He has always enjoyed listening to a wide range of music, and these days he writes and records more than just punk rock. But not to worry, he still has a major problem with authority figures.

He is a multi-instrumentalist, with the bulk of his recordings being behind the drum kit as shown to the left. Below is just a sampling of his former bands.




Cavallo is a heavy, instrumental, post rock band from Brooklyn. They still play and record, you should check them out live and buy their records.






Dread Fabrik was a punk band from New Brunswick, NJ.
