ABOUT

Interested in a project to record an EP or album. I'm into a lot of stuff, not too genre specific. I love jazz and indie rock a lot - not really a genre purist. Past year or so I've been listening to a lot of indie country/western (think western AF, savingcountrymusic kind of stuff). I think I'm a pretty technically average player, and not a good vocalist, so it'd be cool to find a collaborator that can sing better than me, maybe help with lyrics which I also am not good at. I use Reaper for most recording. Live drummers sound way better than programmed, if you can drum and sing, that's sweet!

Influences

I'm pretty open to a lot of music. I really like Spoon, weezer, strokes, wolf parade, new order, Kid A/Amnesiac, indie rock in general really. Zach Bryan, Jesse Daniel, Stax/Volt/Atlantic style soul. Stones, Replacements, MBV, Cake, Prince, Twilight Singers, 40s-80s country western music (Ernest/Merle/Buck/Waylon/Willie/Dwight etc), hard jazz, Anderson.Paak, Ghanan high life music, etc. I also listen to a lot of music I don't like out of curiosity and to see what people are up to.

I'm not really into most blues/metal/rap/grunge kind of stuff but there are exceptions.
