ABOUT

Hey Everyone,

I'm a diverse non-drama guitarist / multi-instrumentalist with 20+ years of stage experience seeking other like minded musicians. My main instruments are acoustic guitar (steel and nylon), didgeridoo and native flutes and run everything through a huge FX board. I'm also a DAW composer, technology gear head and self diagnosed audiophile.

Genres: Acoustic Rock, World (Indian, Spanish, Aboriginal), Electric, Alternative, Indie, Progressive, Experimental, 60's / 70's Prog Rock, Film Score, other

I'm looking to join or start an original content project somewhere in Chicago or the North Side. I'm not looking for a massive tour commitment, but It'd be great to collaborate weekly and perform out several times a month. Ideally, I'd like to team up with other creative acoustic/electric instrumentalists; create some type of hybrid blend with Ableton / DAW, live loops, or something else entirely unique to perform live.


I'm seeking:

Electronic / DAW / Ableton composers
Acoustic or Electric Guitarist
Acoustic or Electric Bassist
Drummer / Percussionist (kit or hand)
...other acoustic instrumentalists?

If this sounds like you, drop me a line.
