ABOUT

I am currently looking to put together an original, touring rock band. I'd like it to be a new approach to classic rock with elements of blues and southern rock/country in the music.

At the moment, I am looking for members to fill out the classic four piece rock band (vox, bass and drums). Above all else, I am searching for solid musicians who are incredibly passionate and dedicated to the music. I would be looking to jam, write, rehearse, gig, etc. at the very least 4 times a week. For vocals, I'd be looking for a unique blues rock singer with great range and pitch control (maybe a little grit in there as well). As for the rhythm section, I'd like to find a bassist and drummer that can really lock in together, but could also bring some flash when needed.

I am now 24, in Hollywood, CA, and have been playing guitar for around 10 years. I graduated from Musicians Institute with a Bachelor's Degree in Guitar Performance in 2019 and have been playing in bands up and down the coast since. My dedication to music pushes me to become a better musician and guitarist in hopes to one day make these dreams a reality. If this sounds interesting to you or that you may be a good fit, please feel free to reach out and get in touch, thanks!
