In this crazy upside-down world, music is the only thing that doesn’t tear people apart. I am a fingerstyle acoustic guitarist. I play rock, folk, pop, country, Americana, and more. I am looking to hang out, collaborate, and jam with other musicians of the unplugged variety.
My ultimate goal is to join or form an “unplugged” type of band to play originals and covers at small low-key gigs maybe 2-3 times per month. By unplugged, I just mean mostly acoustic instruments. I do not mean the absence of amps and electronics. I'm solid with guitars and recording equipment already, and I can purchase whatever amps and electronics I need later. I can practice as much as required at first and then maybe 1-3 times per week after that.
More presently, I would like to find one or more song-writing partners for collaboration and home recording projects. During the dark days of the pandemic, I'd like to record back and forth from home with some folks. I'm ready to write some (hopefully great) songs. I just need a partner/reason to do it.
I have been playing guitar my whole life, but I have never been in a band or played a single gig. Please watch my videos and listen to my originals tracks posted on SoundCloud.
I’m down with distancing during COVID, meeting online, Recording back and forth, etc.
