ABOUT

I am new to the Detroit area and am looking to build a musical network, join a cover/tribute band, or the right original project. I can do studio work or do fill-in work as a bass or guitar player.
I moved from Raleigh, NC where I worked as a full time music instructor (guitar, bass, ukulele, piano, percussion) and gigging musician (Bass).
My experience: 25 years of learning and performing, 15 years of teaching, and 5 years of touring.
I prefer to stay local and am available for studio/recording and as a fill-in for live local gigs. I am open to joining an existing project if scheduling, compensation, goals, and/or quality of material makes sense.

I prefer playing bass first, with guitar as an additional option. I have experience playing both instruments live and in studio.
I have experience touring, but prefer to stay local.
