ABOUT

I am looking for REAL people with long term goals.
Age and looks are not my concerns. .. God-given skills, commitment and a driven desire to write, record and then gig is what matters to me.


The first 10 tracks have some "NEW" songs in the list, and below that are songs on SOUNDCLOUD, both completed and in progress. Both sites have just drum and guitar tracks for examples and finished material for your earball pleasure. Some FINISHED songs below are previously released material too. (DIN MONSTER 2015)

I am always writing and recording new material and would like to session with drummers, bass players, other guitar players and front persons looking to write, record and gig.

I ONLY DO ORIGINAL MUSIC!

I'm also available for session work, engineering, music production, mix/mastering, demos, ringtones, jingles, photos, lyrics.
Let me know what you need. If I can't make it happen I probably know someone who can.

Influences

I love heavy, chunky and melodic dark melody.
However, there's a soft side of me too.. (Listen to BROKENWINGS)
Much of the material I like to write is in B, drop C and drop D tunings.
I run 60-13 string gauges on many of my tone generators.
I love the tone from heavy strings on my guitars and basses.
