ABOUT

*edit* I'm looking to perform either Country/Rock/Christian.**

I've mostly played Rhythm/Lead Guitar in Worship Bands. I was in a couple of bands for a short time in High School, but never really gotten to do a "real gig" or go on the road. I have had many performances in front of large crowds, so stage fright is not something I have. Most of my performances have been with church bands, and a couple high school competitions. I was Rhythm Guitar in an established local rock band called "Spinal Cross" for a short time, but left before any gigs. The band no longer does any shows, but they have opened up for bands like Buck Cherry, Ratt, Stryper, Jackyl and more. Rocklahoma is also a venue they have performed at. As for me, I have not done anything too "professional" which is why I'm on here, I'm just looking for something more established or challenging. I'm always looking to learn and grow as a musician and a performer. And get the opportunity to establish myself as a professional musician. I've done a lot of Christian Music and Rock, those are my biggest Guitar influences. But I love Country Music, and as it is amazing, is equally challenging for me to play at first, and to get that "Country Tone/Twang" to come out in my playing, but the journey and development of that has been wonderful, and exciting, and I really feel I could be an asset for a very unique sound. My guitar gear is still growing and changing as well. I continue to research and experiment with different sounds and use different equipment to really find something that is pleasant to the ears, but also refreshing and new. I want people to hear the sound of my Guitar and it not only be something that is unique to the industry, but can be associated with me, and my roots in music. I'm an Oklahoma Boy, and the Oklahoma sound should be something people can enjoy just as much if not more than "Red Dirt" or "Nashville" Country styles and sounds.

As for lyrics, that is my biggest achilles heel. Writing lyrics has been my weak point since I've started in my professional music career. But where I may lack in lyrics, I still believe creativity is my biggest strength in my life, and I am CONFIDENT that as I continue to challenge myself on my weaknesses, that my level creativity will bring it to the next level.

I want to find other like minded Musicians/Artist, established or not, but that are also in the same age range. Mostly because I'm looking for some real commitment, and potential long term career. I have big dreams, and I'm young enough to put in the work and be around long enough to see it come through to the end. I don't want to waste anyone's time, nor do I want to waste mine. If it doesn't work out, it is what it is. And I can live with that.

If you're interested, hit me up, and let's see if its a good fit.
