ABOUT

Songwriter/guitarist/bassist looking to form or join an indie, punk, garage, or folk rock band (no cover bands or classic rock). I have lots of connections to get shows (and possibly tours) booked as well as label contacts.

About me: I founded a small indie label that has released albums on vinyl and CD. I've booked Hopscotch parties and songwriter showcases and ran an indie music radio show /podcast for a year.

I have experience as a live sound tech, recording tech, musician, songwriter, stage manager for a Grammy winning artist, and band photographer. I have twenty years of experience songwriting and performing rock, acoustic, indie pop, and electronic music.

I play guitar, bass, some keyboard, and I have experience in drum programming, studio recording, mixing and live sound reinforcement. I have played in a number of bands and musicians over the years, professional and those playing for fun.

Today I primary focus on working in my home studio, continuing the process of learning recording, songwriting, and instrumentation techniques. I have recorded and produced released for myself and other artists which you can find on Spotify including Cicada Love and George Banda.

I am interested in recording singer-songwriters; either your original work or collaborating on songwriter. Especially interested in any artists that would like additional instrumentation on their songs (bass, guitar, keyboard).

Very much interested in co-writing in the modern styles of artists listed under "Influences."

My preferred genres are indie pop, indie rock, punk/garage, folk, and acoustic singer-songwriter.
