ABOUT

Looking for a vocalist for hard rock project. Influences includes Stone Sour, Godsmack, Metallica, and Foo Fighters, to give an idea of the sound - Contact me to discuss further!

I am primarily a bass player, but also enjoy writing tunes and messing around on guitar and keyboard. I have recently been shuffling back n forth between bass and lead vocals for my last project, but find I prefer the bass and just harmonizing the backing vox
I also enjoy recording other musicians in various settings, so if you need some recording done, hit me up for some sample work.
