ABOUT

Bass guitarist/synthesist into traditional and neo progressive rock, hard rock, heavy metal, gothic metal, symphonic rock. Please note that I am definitely not into vocals where there is screaming or any kind of cookie monster growling.

I am a multi-instrumentalist with extensive recording and performance experience, top rate gear and a diverse songwriter with excellent composition and arrangement skills!

My background encompasses a cross genre of influences, ranging from traditional artists to that of the neo-prog, retro- swing/jump blues, rockabilly and gothic music styles.

As a drummer, I was highly active during the swing music revival of the middle 90's to early 2000's. I am open to other musical projects based on a professional level situation.
