I am a drummer and vocalist (Lead and Backing) with over 30 years of playing experience ranging from session work to live bands as well as some home recording. Though I do have a day job, I am a professional and treat my musical endeavors as a reflection of my reputation and professionalism. I am most experienced playing/singing classic rock, pop, and r&b.
My drumming style is most definitely pocket oriented as I always play for the song. I am not a fan of drum solos or players that stomp all over the song and vocals with fills...(though I consider myself adept when appropriate)....sorry Keith Moon fans.....
As a singer, I am a huge fan of tight harmony and strive to provide a blended voice to the lead line. I have a TESSITURA vocal range of approximately F3 through B3. (But again, that is just the Tessitura range, I can go a lot lower or higher than that). When singing lead, I draw my main influences from Daryl Hall and Michael McDonald, but I have so many other influences from 30 years, I can't even think of them all right now.
