ABOUT

I'm 27 years old. My band mates and I are putting together a country/cosmic americana band. The band consist of me playing acoustic and electric guitar, singing lead/harmony vocal and write. Sean Thompson (Turky's,Taylor Brashears,Pujol) plays Lead Telecaster and Tim Good on drums and percussion. We are hoping to play Lower Broadway and beyond. Our set includes many classic covers along with new originals. I have a practice space at my house 10 minutes north of nashville. Some of my modern influences include Ryan Adams, Chamber Strings, Dwight Yoakam, Dave Gleason, Kenny Vaughan, Ben Kweller. Older influences include Gram Parsons, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Towns Van Zandt, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Del Reeves, Lefty Frizzell, The Band, (most) Rolling Stones, (some) Beatles and again many more. I tend to gravitate towards the darker side of things in any genre. I sing lead and harmony, play electric and acoustic guitar, bass, some piano/organ and some mandolin. My hopes are to have a band who can play both acoustic with various percussion as well as electric all around. I'd like to have dynamics and options. I write all of my own music and lyrics.
