ABOUT

Middle aged bassist looking to see what's out there. I grew up listening to jam bands and 60's soul rock and those are foundationally my biggest influences. In the last few years I've become a big jazz fan, though it's not my preferred genre to play. I'm not really interested in being in a cover band, though interpretations of other songs are fine with me. Ideally I'm looking to play heavier psychedelic music with a focus on songwriting and improvisation.

I have a lot of existing songs that I can bring to the table (generally with lyrics, though I would rather someone else sing) and I enjoy the creative process.
