ABOUT

I'm a lead vocalist/song collaborator/guitarist and I'm looking for an additional true creative drummer to help me write and produce songs with a couple of others.

A drummer that knows how to write. Even a beats, synth, or turn table artist. I need another maestro of melodic and dynamic song ideas who is looking for a real lead or backup vocalist / guitarist and bassist to assist you on your journey.

Please contact me if you enjoy camaraderie, team work and want to be creative. I have been with a few bands, recorded demos, and have written or cowritten many many songs which have or have not been recorded yet. I'm looking to develop the next unique song product(s). It will entail a one song at a time, methodical, perfectionist, creative approach to song writing where we mutually agree that the song is good enough to make us content. A sound which agrees with each individual's artist persona and has properties which many can akin to. Someone who is agreeable and knows the fine line between "Lets get this done and push this out to the pile of sh*t that currently wreaks the mainstream rock/alternative industry," and "Hey, I really like this and I think this is pretty darn unique and good now. What do you think?" Lets not just record something for the sake of recording. Quality, not quantity. Do you share the same vision?

I listen and embrace many many old school sounds - particularly PINK FLOYD, Who, Black Crows, Police, King Crimson, Yes, Led ... My heavier side enjoyed the sounds of Tool , APC, Deftones, Nirvana, STP, AinC, System to name just a few. I'm only listing the mainstream influences so that more can relate, but I love many undergrounds as well.
