ABOUT

Drums:

Moving to Portland Maine from Austin Texas - Drums: two years playing, while literally practicing not less than six (6) hours daily. I learned during Covid lockdowns and last two years, playing along with multiple genres of music from fast rock, to slow SRV (Steve Ray Vaughan) style slow solos etc. (no formal lessons beyond online. I’m very confident I can learn and perfect to perform most any song, some requiring practice but most I’m comfortable just jumping in keeping the drum beat. I’m additionally planning on taking more advanced lessons. I’m open to most music styles. Although I’m new to playing drums, it’s my second instrument. I have many years of music experience, all tying to winning multiple state championships in Texas. So understanding the pace/beat, 4/2, 4/4 etc isn’t difficult and through daily practice I’m significantly improving paradidals and other technical drills.

Singing:

Being from Texas with definitely distinctive Texas draw accent and a tenor to base voice, I can nearly perfectly duplicate many old school country music artists and amazing songs. I’m also interested in singing cover songs in country band. I’m great at almost perfectly duplicating cover songs for the following artists:

George Straight
Randy Travis
Keith Whitley
Alan Jackson
Conway Twitty
