I'm a guitarist that can sing. I write my own music often and over the years have compiled about 10 CD's worth of material at one stage of completion or another. I used to front my own band, 'Doad', here in the HR area (Southside mostly) from '05-'11, and also solo acoustic. I opened for various artists touring when they came here. I am currently interested in joining up or getting a drummer and bassist together and performing again in this and other areas regionally. Musical preferences and compatibility are a must with the people I will work with. So is professionalism and maturity, i.e. no drama or drug and alcohol abuse, especially during a show. These things are not negotiable, but age chronologically is not. I'm in my 50's but I believe my tastes in music are a bit more diverse than most people my age; having said that, I rest my soul in Classic Rock and Blues. No genre is out of reach however!
