ABOUT

Lead/harmony vocalist with good range.
Experienced, solid drummer.
Amateur rhythm guitarist.
Songwriter with knowledge of music theory.
Some knowledge/experience on keyboards and bass guitar.
Currently looking for modern hard rock band playing '90's to 2000's rock music.
I would also enjoy fronting a Seether or Fuel tribute band.
Some classic rock may be ok, as long as it's not the same stale old songs every other bar band plays.
I would also be interested in performing as an acoustic duo.

Influences

I have been influenced by hundreds of artists though the years.I originally listened to top 40 music (Phil Collins, Bryan Adams, INXS, Duran Duran...) but got into hair bands (Bon Jovi, Dokken, Whitesnake...) and prog bands (Genesis, Yes, Kansas, Dream Theater...) in the late 80's. I was very influenced by Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains when they came out. I love 90's rock such as Stone Temple Pilots and Bush. Some of my current favorites are Shinedown, Foo Fighters, Seether, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace and Papa Roach, to name just a few. I also like heavier bands such as Godsmack, Disturbed, Bullet for My Valentine, and A7X.
