Experienced, versatile Frontman/Vocalist
Hi. I've many years of experience as a vocalist and frontman. I've done Vegas, Reno, Tahoe, Atlantic City, concerts, clubs, TV, radio, weddings and parties, etc. I know how to work a crowd and am very interactive with my audience. I've done over 1000 weddings and parties and can MC any venue.
I've worked with bands of varying sizes from 11 pieces to solo. I am currently performing solo using background tracks like the ones used in the tracks I have posted here. The main reason for this is that it is difficult for me to find a band that can sing and play on my level that doesn't want to work full time.
I have a day job and am available to rehearse during the week in the evenings. I work from home most of the time and have a very liberal schedule. I prefer to work no more than 2 to3 times per month. But, as I would never turn down a really good gig, this is very flexible.
I'm very dependable and reliable and can provide references to back that up.
The tracks I have uploaded here are some of my favorite songs to sing but are a very small portion of my full repertoire.
I do enjoy singing all styles and genres, from Andrea Bocelli to ZZ Top. I specialize in classic rock and can do very faithful renditions of singers like Steve Perry, and Lou Gramm - and groups like the Doobie Brothers, CS&N, and the Eagles.
I'm singing lead and background vocals on all of the tracks I have uploaded here. They were all recorded in late 2011 or after.
All the Journey tunes and a couple of others were recorded in the studio. The remaining tracks were recorded at home with just a mic, my home computer, some backing tracks and a little reverb. What they lack in production quality they make up for in realism. There was no pitch correction or any other type of gimmick used in any of the tracks.
I sing harmony on the fly and in most cases the harmony was done in one take. The lead vocals were done in 3 takes using track comping for the final cut.
This photo was taken in late September 2011. And yes, it was Photoshopped. If it is good enough for world class models, it's good enough for me :-)
Journey, Foreigner, Eagles, Doobie Brothers, Stevie Wonder, Steve Stills, and Stevie Winwood. Also influenced by Jackie Wilson, Tony Williams, Jay Black, Johnny Maestro, Wilson Picket, Marvin Gaye, Tony Bennett, Andrea Bocelli, Frank Sinatra, etc.
I have my own PA, SM58, Shure Wireless Mic, Roland JV 90 and Axis 1 keyboards, and a rack of sound modules.
