ABOUT

Looking to start or join a band in DFW. Looking for other skilled musicians with the same goals and musical interests to join me! If that's you, please message me!! I am interested in writing my own music and performing/recording it, as well as playing covers. Aside from my personal musical influences listed down at the bottom, I am fairly versatile and willing to accommodate to a diverse range of instrumentalists and vocalists.

Have been playing piano since I was 6. If it has keys, I can and have probably played it before.
I just graduated from University of North Texas where I studied IT and organ. I enjoy playing keyboards, and doing special effects. Played with a rock/contemporary church band for 5 years doing 1-2 out of house gigs every week, aside from in house playing about 3 times
per week. Ready to get away from worship music though!

I enjoy playing covers, and can write my own chord progressions and melodies as well.
I'm seeking a band that plays music that falls underneath my musical tastes. See influences below!
