ABOUT

Looking for jams, willing to fill-in/support for gigs, or possibly a permanent band to play in. Playing in a couple bands steadily, but open for what comes along. Competent bass player that focuses on the groove while adding melody and harmony to keep it interesting. I've been described as in the pocket and easy to follow/lock-in with. Best compliment I've received was "you don't play bass like a guitar player; you sound like a bass player..." Nothing wrong with guitar, so calm down :) I play a lot of styles from rock, punk, blues, R&B, alternative. I'm most comfortable playing rock, but I can usually adapt to what is needed for the music. I'm not the most techy/fast player, but can usually find a way to support the music/band. Comfortable playing with fingers or pick, not really into slap. Always looking for jams in the west chester, PA area.

Influences

Lots of different influences/interests in music, but the bass players I first noticed and got me interested in playing were John Paul Jones, Jack Bruce and Geezer Butler. I wouldn't necessarily say I sound like any of them, but players I admire. I'd also draw influence of punk/new wave/post-punk bands of the late 70s and 80s. Not big on top 40 country/top 40 in general. Lots of exposure/knowledge of classic rock, but not thrilled about playing it anymore.
