ABOUT

Bassist at heart, getting pretty good on keys and synths. I have tons of gear and always seem to somehow get more. My goal is to start a record label, just dive into the rabbit hole of music. Already headed in that direction, might as well just go for it right? I live on a beautiful walnut orchard up in Foresthill. It’s secluded and you can be as loud as you want, also very peaceful to be out here, helps with inspiration, feeling a disconnect from the city madness! Let’s jam! Looking for drummers who are funky and jazzy, also guitarists who are super clean and sonic AF with their exploring! And also any horn player, definitely want to start linking up with the horns!
