My name is Ben Holcombe I am a 20 year old Guitarist/Singer in the progressive funk band Grey Matter. I am looking for extra work as a teacher/session player/side gig. I am an excellent guitar player and can play anything asked of me without a thought. In bass I am nearly as competent, can move around and support better than most. I am a decent drummer and vocalist, can play difficult things with some effort. I am a competent keyboard player who can get around most songs and improvise well.

As a musician I am a talented songwriter and an incredibly gifted improviser. My band does dominantly improvisational music, and I have been performing in highly improvisational bands for years. This is certainly my forte, though I am also a prog rock nerd and longer composed sections do not bother me.

All services cost 20$/hour unless otherwise discussed
