Lifetime semi-pro musician. My main instrument is keyboards, but I also play 6- and 12-string rhythm guitar. I play many styles -- I wish Bandmix wouldn't limit me to just three. Let's add New Country, R&B, and Blues to the list for sure, probably some others, too -- funk, reggae, latin, ska. I have a strong tenor, a passable baritone, and a great falsetto. I can harmonize with anyone. My musical tastes range from the mid-'60s to what's on the radio today.
I'm currently in the Alan Stone Project, but I'm looking for a second act -- probably New Country or Southern Rock. I'm doing the club-and-casuals thing. Session work is always appealing, if you need a set of versatile keys and some extra vocals. The style of music isn't as important as the dedication of the players. I have contacts with other musicians.
