Life and career

His second solo album, Soundtrack to a Book, was released on Stranger Touch Records in 2006. Mason Jones of Dusted Magazine described it as "an excellent mini-album, perhaps the best yet from Radioinactive." He released the third solo album, The Akashic Record, on Flying Carpet Studios in 2012.
