ABOUT

I am a guitarist/composer; I am seeking a creative collaborator to work with in developing music compositions.

Over the years I have compiled a significant collection of musical ideas, progressions, and melodies. The styles range from pop to indie to rock to blues and jazz.

I feel that the compositions I've created have significant potential, yet my failing has been not fully developing them. I have been writing and creating in my own little world and feel that the time is right to combine forces with a musical collaborator.

I think perhaps a creative singer who can improvise melodies to my progressions would be a good fit. I hear a female voice in my head, dancing around these musical ideas. That, and/or perhaps a creative keyboard player who would be interested in working together to develop the many ideas that I have ready to roll!
