ABOUT

We are a 3 piece blues-rock band called Root Spirits. Its a Blues based Rock&Roll project. Currently seeking a new bass player who is heavily influenced by Chicago blues as well as bands like Free, Faces, Black Crowes, Grand Funk Railroad, etc. www.rootspirits.com

As far as an independent player I am looking to stay in the BLUES, Rock & Roll, Americana, & Southern Rock realms but I grew up playing Death Metal and I still have the means to shred! I am not interested in playing Metal full time but I would be interested in a Stoner Metal or Sludge situation!

I am available to do studio work, play in other bands, or any other sort of collaboration. I have the ability to record in my own space so if you are looking for someone who could cut their parts on their own then I am your man!
