ABOUT

I'm a songwriter, vocalist, bassist, and rhythm guitarist looking to start a new 3-4 piece gigging band in Flagstaff. My primary interest is in original music, with select covers for gigging viability. I bring about 15 finished original songs, so we should be able to get a set together quickly. I welcome collaborating on more songs in the future.
I try to write original and thought-provoking lyrics, while keeping the music accessible with catchy melodies, memorable bass lines, and an intuitive simplicity.
I am a past winner of the Flagstaff Arts Council's Viola Award, and have toured nationally as a visual/conceptual artist and photographer for several years. I understand the challenges of a creative life and the importance of marketing and promotion. I bring a solid eye for art direction and copy editing to any project.
