ABOUT

I played professionally in the past and I play mostly for fun now. I would rather write originals. I have a pretty nice home studio and would like to put it to some good use. I definitely write with a darker style but would like try and break out of that every now and then. I have played both keys and guitar all my life with keys being my main instrument. I have switched to guitar as my main and have been practicing jazz when I can. I am open to all types of music and I like to experiment with guitar.I am currently working in two projects. One group has Nepali singer in which we play covers from Nepal, normal 80's, 90's and modern tunes that are changed up. The other project is somewhat experimental with a poet as our front person.

We have live and recording gear.

Nepali Group (Nish and the Magic MoMo)
Currently we are looking for a bass player in the Nepali Group. We only play once or twice a month and practice once a week or 2.

Experimental Group (Whirled Citizen) <-*subject to change*
The best way to describe experimental project music is...a mix of light prog rock, artsy/indie sound with a jazzy overlay *shrug*? Still working through some tunes and have a few complete. We have a good chemistry of the people in this group but are open to adding a solo instrument such as sax or trumpet...(or something else?). This group has not played out much yet...so far only place we plan on playing is a coffee shop. We do try to get a practice in 2-3 times a month. All original stuff in this group.

Personal Stuff (Daddo):
Always open to collaborating with others. The stuff I do on my own ranges from synthy to guitar only. I post as much as I can to my website. daddodaddo.com
