ABOUT

Eclectic bassist and drummer looking to form a gigging three or four piece band (guitar and/or keys, bass, and drums). We both sing and trade lead vocals (so if you sing too, that's fantastic, but definitely not necessary). Our style encompasses everything from Duke Ellington's sweetest ballads to Tool's gnarliest riffs. We're constantly writing original music, often utilizing odd time-signatures (sometimes changing signature mid-song) and challenging chords (lots of tensions), so solid chops and a good ear are must-haves. We also love playing straight rock, blues, and LOTS of funk. If you're a guitarist or pianist with excellent chops, good stage presence, and a love for everything from soft jazz to snarly prog, then get your fine self on over here and lets make some music!
