ABOUT

Hey, I moved to St Louis from New York a couple of years ago. I fronted a band most recently in New York for about 5 years but I've played in many various bands in different cities over the years. I play keys, guitar and sing. I am usually the principal songwriter for the bands I play in and I've got lots of material, but I'm pretty flexible about it all. I'm really just looking for people to play with who want to have a good time making music and who knows...

You can hear tons of stuff on this page. This will give you some idea of how I sing and play but the songs I'm looking to bring out might be similar..ish but somehow less rockish... The first few songs are closer to where I'd like to go.

Since moving here I've been writing tons of new material and although I think Pop Rock is pretty deep in my dna, My last band was very rock oriented, a bit Foo's-ish. I'm hoping to get away from that kind of rock and do something more clean sounding.. James Blunt, Ed Sheeran, Coldplay maybe Death Cab as influences.

I'm looking to create or join a band that includes more musicians than less 5 or 6 people. Something that allows for dynamics, complex harmonies and maybe some experimentation with regards to people trying different instruments.
