ABOUT

Hello there. I'm Andrew. I've been playing bass for over ten years, and I love music.

My friend John (guitar) and I have been playing together for a couple of years now, and we just lost our drummer for the second time. Finding a new one is our first priority, although we're open to expanding with other instruments provided we find the right individuals. We want a team affair—not a frontman/woman with a backing band.

John is well-versed in music theory; myself not as much, so we're an equal opportunity band in that regard. We have a handful of originals and a bunch of ideas in the bank.

We like to have fun and not take ourselves too seriously while still being committed to getting things done. If you're looking to create original music, record, and hopefully even play a few shows, get in touch. Thanks.
