ABOUT

I'm looking for a solid group of musicians that want to create a new, original sound. I played lead guitar for a punk/ska/reggae band in Twin Falls ID, and drummed for a progressive/experimental band in the same town. I also managed to play bass guitar for two different and diverse indie/emo bands, where we played a few packed gigs. I played drums for two great bands in the Pocatello ID area, one played originals and covers with a trumpet and congo player, and the other was named Shawn and the Marauders received tons of local bookings/press, and was voted the Best Local Band in 2012. But we never forgot our roots, house parties haven't been the same since! :)

Currently, I'm playing drums for Jason Heath and the Greedy Souls. We rehearse once a week in LA and play 1 to 2 times a month throughout the area: from a small stage in Long Beach to right on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood. In November 2015, we embarked on a self-funded and self-promoted 4-week tour through the U.S. and Canada: from small bars in Texas, to an audience of over 1000 in Niagra Falls, Canada. It was an amazing experience and I can't wait for the next opportunity.

As my track record of being a musician has shown, I'm perfectly capable and interested in being dedicated to more than a single band at one time, allowing myself to gain experience and be creative as a musician.

I'm looking to join a PROFESSIONAL group that will set new bounds of music, either by bending or blending genres, or delivering a sound that people can't help but dance to.
