ABOUT

Thanks to those who have contacted me, I've found a band. Keeping this up though in the event that I have time for a side project in the future.

I'm better on drums and percussion than anything else, but I don't own a drum set. If you have one that needs someone to play it, I'm your guy. Ditto on keyboards: I can play them, but I don't own my own.

I'm on guitar with my previous band in the linked video, and on drums with them in the audio files.

Also down for guitar and some vocals. Maybe bass, a little mandolin. I just want to play. I like pretty much any style of music except religious. I split from my last band in May and opted to take the summer off. We were a punk band with Americana influences (originally acoustic folk punk, then we plugged in); I started out on drums with them before moving to guitar.

I was raised in Cleveland to Michigan-native parents, so the rock music of the Great Lakes from the 1960s to 2000s is huge for me. I mean, if we're being honest the roots of American punk rock really came out of the garage bands from this area: MC5, the electric eels, Rocket From the Tombs, Pere Ubu, Dead Boys, The Stooges, The Pleasure Seekers, The Outsiders, ? and the Mysterions, The Amboy Dukes, The McCoys, Tommy James and the Shondells, Ides of March... and more recently, Violent Femmes, Devo, The Pretenders, The White Stripes, The Black Keys, New Bomb Turks, The Von Bondies, and plenty more I'm forgetting. So take all that Michigan/Ohio/Chicago/Wisconsin sound, toss in a little Boston punk and hardcore from my college years, and sprinkle on the amalgamation of what you find in Texas, plus stuff from my ancestry (mostly Finnish, Sami, and Irish) and you get and idea of what goes into me.
