ABOUT

I desire to play music out. I haven't done that in many years now, and I miss it. Ideally, I'd love to start my own band. I might consider being part of an existing band if it was the right fit.

I listen to and can play songs of a wide range of genres, including rock, pop, funk, country, r&b, blues, jazz. The two I mainly fall back on are rock and pop, but I prefer to not let that "define" me as a musician, if that makes sense.

I consider myself to be an expert on saxophone in the styles that I play, though ask me to sight-read and I may choke! It's all ears for me!

I also like to sing. I think I have a pretty good singing voice for most types of music. I'm a tenor with a fairly good range.

I also play keyboards. I think I'm decent. I wouldn't say I'm a top-tier player, but there are certain things I play pretty darn well. I played primarily keyboards in the last band I was in.

And finally, I love to write. I don't write quickly. I take my time making sure I get a song right. Taking that time makes a huge difference in the end-result. I do wish I played guitar, because there are many things I write that I'd love to put guitar on.

If you're interested in working together, whether for a project or something more permanent, let me know.
