ABOUT

Uuuuummmm...I really, really, REALLY, really need some good players to play with a.s.a.p. Been doing it all on my lonesome far too long.
Anyway:
Well, I'm only alive because of music and the various arts. I have no classic training of any kind but have perfect pitch and an endless drive to push my music and other outlets to places new, valuable and exciting to even get to be a part of creating such wonderful, miraculous expressions of what is all too easy to forget is a wonderful, miraculous life. Don't use chemicals when writing like in the early years but don't judge folks for their preferences. Look, there's just nothing better than writing and producing music that wouldn't have other wise came to be if it weren't for collaborating with like minded players. I'm damned good at writing for several instruments but am soooo, soooo over doing it all myself. Please, you'll be glad we did this and put due energy into an active and vibrant band. I'm not so much interested in the trappings of success other than getting to share great music with a greater scope of person. I'm 42 and used to be a f#cking maniac but managed to survive myself and calm down to this my present and pretty suave ass personage. That's it for now just call me if you're really good at what you do, K? Awesome.

EQUIPMENT

Very sparce presently;
Amazing new/used Alvaraz acoustic and a ...well, a yamaha acoustic that I only keep 3 strings for songwriting cuz' it helps get to the marrow of what your trying to say...and it looks like I coated it in glue and threw it in a mound of recycling trash cuz I've decorated it pretty insanely with random sh#t...
A bass amp (fender), Yamaha electric piano, and an Acer computer that I've spent this last year crash coursing myself in the ways of digital recording and I've caught up pretty commendably given this is the first laptop I've ever owned and I've never had a TV or bank accout...literally! Oh, and I have a Rode condensor mic n a couple mic stands.
