ABOUT

I am a 37-yo experienced songwriter and vocalist looking to jam with musicians and join a band seeking a lead singer with wide range. I am mainly a tenor but can reach various octaves, hold notes and pitches, and execute smooth falsettos and vibratos.

I have solid stage presence and was a front man for one classic cover rock band, two punk/metal bands, a soft-alt rock band, and an acoustic cover-band trio.

I can play solid rhythm guitar but pride myself mainly on my passionate vocals and skillful interchangeable capability with aggressive screaming and melodic vocals. I enjoy writing lyrics as well. Bottom line: I have lots of pent up energy and frustration I want to unleash on the mic and stage. With that, I am a SoCal native who is super chill, friendly, understanding, and love being a team player. I put my emotions into the mic and songs, NOT on band members.
