ABOUT

This song has always stuck with me since I first heard it, along with most of Moz's stuff.

This track is meant to convey a sense for my range and tone, *not* the type of music I aim to play live.

>> WHO I AM:
Singer/songwriter seeking musical collaborators for rock/funk/jazz fusion project. I've fronted cover bands, but it's time to evolve and perform original music... I have 30+ songs already written, and a method for turning out new ones quickly, just need the right collaborator.

>> WHAT I WANT:
Have fun and play shows.

** Looking for a primary collaboration partner to build our sound/vision and then fill out the band. You are a multi-instrumentalist who appreciates well-crafted lyrics. **

Let's pack the dancefloor sweaty, everyone having a blast with our funky, danceable music that belies lyrical content with an edge. Think: Chili Peppers and Say Anything meet Vampire Weekend and mix it up in an alley.

Current vision includes guitar, bass, percussion, sax, keys, and possibly a horn.

>> WHAT THAT WOULD LOOK LIKE:
We get together 2-3 times/week and write/rehearse. We play a show or two per month, even if only open mics, early on...

Influences related to the vision for a band include:
RHCP, DM, Vampire Weekend, Glass Animals

>> INTERESTED?
Message me and I'll send you a link to some of my lyrics...
