ABOUT

Brand new to the area. Looking for upright bass, piano/Rhodes/Wurli/cp70, guitar, drums, especially players who can harmonize. Love REM, Peter Gabriel, Juliana Hatfield, Mike Knott, Patty Griffin, Julie Miller, Johnny Cash, U2, The Innocence Mission, Over The Rhine's Good Dog Bad Dog album, The Posies, stuff with strong melodies and strong lyrical content. The songs I have posted here are older songs; I have newer ones that are yet to be recorded. Wrote for, led and toured full-time with Portland-based band for several years, not looking to recreate that experience or schedule- would enjoy playing out and being part of a good band. Have opportunity to record and am in pre-production now.
