ABOUT

I toured 10 years in a cover/original bands back in the day; originally from Michigan (Hard Knox, Kingpin, Concrete Jungle). I am getting back into things in a serious way. Would like to find like minded musicians. I wouldn't mind doing a tribute set of Staind and then a bunch of alt metal like Breaking Benjamin, PAPA Roach, Three Days Grace, Shinedown, Volbeats, etc... mostly the top hits that people will dance to. I am also very open to expanding the sets to include some classics. I also don't want to give the impression that I am restricted to this genre as I am open to also joining a band with a large range of music. I'm open minded and love all music. However, if I start things from scratch I would go in a heavier direction. I can sing about anything.

My vocals are strong and can sing both with power and finesse. My range is wide, but prefer songs along the lines of the listed bands. I prefer to sing lower and clean and add grit that the bands I list above need. Basically the songs I posted are not a good representation of where my tone is these days. I would compare myself more to Breaking Benjamin and Shinedown vocalists these days. The video I posted is 1992, good god, just proof that I existed at the time, lol.

I have been working on a comfortable sound proof practice space in my basement. Almost complete. Building a full PA, but right now enough to practice with and sound professional. Yeah, I have been building up to this for a while and I am ready to start getting serious again. Lets do this!
