Lyricist, producer, composer
5 years recording experience
1 year producing experience
2 years performing experience

-Consider myself to be a composer by nature (I write complete songs with all parts and what I most desire is other people to work with my ideas or to work with other people's ideas)
-Very laid back and excited about music
-Worked with a couple labels and many other acts over past 4 years
-Understand business and marketing
-Financially stable and am able to travel

3 Biggest musical strengths
-Extremely dynamic (high energy used to crescendo and decrescendo very effectively)
-Always get very tight on timing and feeling of music with band
-Pushes out high volume of good quality written songs for band to choose from

My co-writer is has a music performance and jazz saxophone degree from Lawrence Music College. He has been steady gigging (500+ career) for 10 years and plays multiple instruments extremely proficiently. We are looking to make 2 bands together of vary different themes. Especially excited for a high energy drummer and either a very strong bassist or lead/rhythm guitarist and back up singer who could definitely be welcome to sing their own songs.
