ABOUT

I’m a bass player and musician and looking to join or form a band. I’m relatively new to the area and open to anything at this point from a cover bands (as a means to make money and buy more gear) to working towards writing and recording original songs.

I have a wide range of influences and have played a wide range of genres. At this point, I’m really open to anything and just want to meet other like-minded musicians.

You can find some of my work below but it’s just a small sample of my proficiency at bass:
I played on the album “Even Angels Fall” in 2006 which can be found here: s:///alreadyproud

I also played in this EP in 2003: s://.be/u0uaHUKLn6s
