ABOUT

I am an advanced harmonica player who sings turning into a singer who plays harmonica. I am deeply influenced by the post-war Chicago blues. I am also heavily influenced by rock, metal, and some punk. I would like to incorporate all of this into a band that's doing something that not many are doing. I have played for a long time very poorly and got real serious about 18 months ago finding professional instructors (both harmonica and vocals) to take me to the next level. I have friends that I play with and attend jam sessions, but I am looking to get something a little more serious going to see if things work out with a group.
