ABOUT

Hi! I'm a singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist looking to collaborate and make good, evocative, artistic music. I mean, hopefully.

That could mean working on stuff I'm writing, and having you play those things--or it could mean I play stuff you and/or your band have written. I don't really care, so long as we get along and we're on the same page.

I take music seriously. Life, and egos, and drama? Not so much. I'm not looking to play generic blues-rock or radio pop punk or Van Halen covers--I want to get creative, original, raw, subversive, weird. But if it ends up getting lumped in with "Indie Alt Rock," that's fine too. Whatever. I just want to put some thought into it.

I write, record and release stuff under The Caldera (and a few other names), but my main collaborator moved so I'm not really gigging at the moment. You can hear me/us at these places that will likely get word-filtered out because BandMix wants my money:

A lot. I own everything I can play, but I don't have a bass amp or PA. Hey, that rhymed. I usually sing through a small guitar amp.
