Band to Join, Bass Guitar.

ABOUT

Guitarist/vocalist looking to branch out to some new opportunities and get some gigs under my belt.

I have continued to write and play on my own for nearly 20 years. In high school I was in different bands and played shows regularly, but I haven't done much live stuff since moving out of San Diego a few years ago (I'm back now). Besides my 9-5 day job on weekdays, I don't have a whole lot of responsibilities so I'm able to commit to practices and gigs on nights/weekends pretty often.

I'm primarily a rhythm guitarist/vocalist, but I can play a little lead and bass if necessary. I just released a solo album where I played everything except drums. It's on Spotify as Chronic Tiger if you want to check out my style.

Influences

I'm still into that big, 90s Pop Punk/Rock/Alternative sound. I love Weezer, Green Day, Blink, AFI, any pop punk bands from the early 2000s (Saves The Day, Ataris, NFG) or newer ones (Joyce Manor, Cloud Nothings, Wavves). I sway more toward that sound when I write, but I've also been really influenced by Indie Rock and other genres in the past (The Strokes, Death Cab, Franz Ferdinand, Kaiser Chiefs) so I'm pretty diverse and flexible. Bottom line, I like to keep things pretty straight forward, energetic and catchy.
