ABOUT

I'm not currently looking for a group because I'm in one called The Control based in Annapolis. I've written, recorded and played in a grunge/metal inspired band prior. I can play rhythm pretty well and do lead too. I love distortion. I'm pretty open-minded about what the project develops into and wouldn't mind doing something really different. I'm pretty eclectic. Primarily, I like to have fun and rock out. My favorite groups are the ones that create an interesting atmosphere or maybe have a theme. It might be cheesy but I like the theatrical part too. Not required but I think it's fun.
