ABOUT

I'm a disciplined singer-songwriter looking to start a group for the sheer joy of writing and playing interesting music! If I find the right group, gigging and recording would be a natural extension of that.

I'm interested in doing a mix of covers and originals. I have a solid number of originals that we could reinterpret, or we could write more.

Influences

I love a ton of different types of music but the 4 bands that summarize how I write and play are:
Death Cab for Cutie (I write some softer riff-based rock)
The Strokes (I like their intricate and clean approach to energetic punk rock)
Dave Matthews Band (I like experimenting with song form and a touch of improvisation)
Wilco (I like exploring some roots/southern rock sounds)
