ABOUT

If you're here because I've sent you a message. I want to thank you for taking the time to check out the message and also apologize for sending you a canned message. We want to try and reach as many people as possible without wasting much time. Please feel free to contact me with any questions/comments/harassment which you may have. On with the show!

I'm 28, I've been playing guitar my entire life, and I'm currently playing with a group that is seeking a drummer. I'm not married, no kids, but I do work full time as an engineer, and I'm working on my masters degree. I get it if you're busy, I'm busy too, but I'm willing to make time for this. Because it's something I love.

I'm not really going to say "I want to sound like X or Y" because I want to sound like ourselves. I'm into bands like Tool, Baroness, and ISIS. I'm also a jazz nerd, and I've always incorporated some wonky jazz voicings into my music. I can sing decently as well, but I leave most of what to our singer.

Email me and give me some details if you're interested. we're not looking to go out and start gigging next week, and we're also not going to play with people we don't get along with (I expect the same from anyone though). This is all about getting together with your friends and doing something you love. I've been stuck in the back of a van while on tour with people who I hate, I'm not doing that again. Let's get together, hang out, have a few beers, and see how everyone gets along before we even try jumping into anything.
