ABOUT

Singer-songwriter looking for partners/pals. Serious artistically, but no illusions about getting rich or famous. Currently in a couple low-key bands that have occasional to regular gigs, but always interested in making new connections, especially people to harmonize with. Or come see my band, I'll come see yours.

Want to play together? I play guitar, and can fill in on bass. ideally you would play something complementary, but not necessarily. Vocals would range from classic backing vox to extended two part harmony to lead. Looking for someone who can do gutsy, soulful solo vocals as well as blend in well in harmonies. I'm also very interested in writing together. I'm not a virtuoso, but I do have some amazing friends who might sit in when needed. The song is the thing, though.

Get in touch! Seriously.
