Band to Join, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar.

ABOUT

I grew up in Memphis surrounded by blues and the STAX sound, learned to play guitar at a very young age, began playing in bars during my teens and worked in several cover and original bands down south into my mid-30s (played a lot of gigs). I took a hiatus from playing out live much due to career change, and when I tried to get back out was sidelined by the pandemic. I still want to get back out.

My current focus is on original music, and in 2022 put out a digital album on B a n d c a m p. The interface is not allowing me to write that the normal way, or to include the URL. On the attached tracks, which are from that release, I wrote the songs, and aside from the drums and keys on track 1, played all instruments and sang all vocals.

I like to work towards projects and want to play with people who have a drive to succeed. I prefer the band setting but would consider a duo with a person who is a good fit.
