Original material, alternate tunings. The songs are honest and poetic, the instrumentals range from ambient meditative to groovy.

Looking for a creative bassist to collaborate with on Dynamic Ambient Acoustic Electric Post Folk Fusion.

Mainly interested in developing a working musical team, composing and recording for now.

I have a modest home studio about a half hour south of Paducah. as well as a large garage if we expand and bring in a drummer. I would like to start with a bassist but I am open to any musician that is interested in creating something unique.

Very kick back, no drugs, smoke free environment. I enjoy a couple good beers here and there.

Please take a listen to my music to get a broad perspective of my sound. The newer material leans more to the ambient experimental side. I want to do more of that but I am open to see how a creative Bassist will inspire me. Let's try making some music together.
