SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Left-handed bassist into all flavors of original rock -- driving, hooky, danceable, hard, poppy, funkular, punky, alternative, bluesy, ballads, today's country (rock), and occasionally time signatures other than 4/4. Thrives in the songwriting/collaboration phase, in the studio, and on stage. Known as creative, versatile, melodic, idiosyncratic (in a good way), unique, humorous, dependable, supportive, prepared, and disciplined. Checks ego in at the door and lives up to "for the good of the song" credo. Leaves vocals to others (walk & chew gum syndrome). Feel free to contact me at bpa11 a t earth link d o t n e t.
