ABOUT

Hey!

I enjoy playing guitar and writing/arranging songs. My background is primarily classic/hard and prog rock and metal. I also like playing all-time classics, from all decades. I have a formal musical education and read/write music.

I am looking for musicians - primarily vocalist and piano/keys player - to put together a band to play some Dream Theater (and alike) covers, write, record and play originals - mine, yours, etc.. - I like writing my own music (everything, from bass, piano, keys, strings to drums) and recording it, I enjoy just as much arranging someone else's originals and playing covers.

Although I enjoy playing music in a very laid back, no ego and easy-going environment, I am professional and very committed to a project. I played and gigged paid events with three large bands during spring-through-summer season. I am also looking for a winter studio/indoor gigs project.

Finally, I play sessions/studio and gigs. Although it varies from project to project, my base fees are around (2021 prices) $65/hr for gigs (including set up and sound test) and $100/hr for studio. I have played over 100 gigs (up to 3500 people). I am comfortable with professional studio and live sound.
