I just moved to Pittsburgh and am wanting to get involved in or help form a project. Covers or originals are fine. I have played for acts in all genres and am very good at getting the 'feel' of a song. I have a lot of studio, stage, and business-end experience. I have held sponsorships with a couple of gear companies and still have several contacts in the industry. I currently hold a sponsorship with a string company and will be serving as their sales representative in the near future. Feel free to contact me on here, via email (, or by phone call/text (412-651-3709).
