ABOUT

I've played on and off with several bands and projects throughout my life. I've lived and played in St. Louis, Austin, and Nashville. I play a little bit of lots of different intruments, but I'm really just a singer. I'd love to find a few other musicians to play with on a fairly regular basis. I don't mind playing a few interesting cover songs, but I'm not interested in getting gigs just for the sake of getting gigs. I want to play music I want to play. If it sounds good and we like it, then I'd be up for taking it out to the local spots or even on the occasional road trip. I have some original songs and would be particularly interested in collaborations with original material.
