SEEKING

Vocalist, Lead Guitar.

ABOUT

Seasoned Versatile, front Vocalist/Musician seeks other band members to collaborate with. Playing out, recording, etc. I write songs & Lyrics.

I like R&B, Jazz., tributes, classics, and rock music.

I like to have fun. It's not worth my freedom if the players don't practice. To me, playing well is important.

I'm versatile by keeping up to date, I can do anything from Adele, Amy Winehouse, Lady Gaga, Sia and keep up with the top hits on the radio as well as reach into my R&R past! I love blues and I can sing standard jazz songs, etc.

I sing, play guitar (electric/acoustic) and some keyboard.
Beings that I'm usually the lead singer/front person. I'll trade with the keyboard player to play some of the keyboard parts, so he/she can sing. I am good with either 5 players or I can work with 3 or 4 musicians!
My musical training comes from singing in choirs since I was in Elementary school, vocal ensemble and theory in college. I'm self-taught on guitar and have come a long way and took piano lessons in College.
