ABOUT

It was easy to find good people to play with in college--why is it so hard now?

Formed, wrote the music for and played primarily electric guitar in a loose ska/funk/punk/rock/oldies band in my early 20s. All of the other members went on to tour in other bands while I started a professional career. Finally at a place in life where I can give music another shot.

In addition to the high-energy songs from my original band, I've written a lot of new music and some lyrics in the past 18 months. Most of those songs are incomplete and could benefit from the input of a collaborator. I'd love to develop this music with a skillful somebody but, more importantly, with someone (male or female) who is intelligent, fun, accountable and instrumentally-versatile. Most of the songs are acoustic guitar-centric but do/would feature an edgier/funkier quality with fuzzed electric guitar, keyboard/piano, multiple layered vocal parts and possibly a dash of electronic sprinkled in. My multitrack experimental recordings are based on a four-person band where the second guitar can also play piano/keyboard and three-out-of-four can sing but all of the songs can be played as a duo, too.

I'm hoping to take this as far as its potential will allow.

I'm fortunate to have a very flexible work situation and hope to find people who also have flexibility. I seem younger than I am so age doesn't have to be an issue. And, if you're on the fringe of interested, I should tell you that I keep a lot of snacks in my house.
