ABOUT

I am looking to join or create a band with people that want to excel. I toured the United States in an original band out of San Diego from 1997 to 1998. Since then, I have been in several cover bands in Italy, Korea, Germany, and Kansas City. I have over fifty original songs written with lyrics & music. I am searching for talented individuals that want to inspire the world with melodic highs, thunderous lows, dynamic percussion, and crushing epic chord progressions. A completely open mind for music is a plus.

Send me an e-mail at BassMVP at icloud dot com.
