ABOUT

***forest dot heights dot band at g mail is my "business" email. Feel free to shoot me an email if I might be what you're looking for!***
Multi-Instrumentalist new to the area. Looking to help fill any gaps in your personnel with someone that supports and builds on your sound and unique style. I bring twelve years of playing most things to the table, and have a half decent ear to boot. Most confident on Drums and Bass Guitar, with any other instruments listed I'm confident enough not to emberass myself, and I can blend into almost any style on anything that I play. If timbre isn't important to you I can sing Lead Vox (but if you want me to sound better I can also just harmonize in the back).
I write music as well, most comfortable writing Bass Lines, Chord Progressions, anything Percussion related (including making beats), multiple Guitars, and/or Vocal Harmonies. Melodies are my weak point. Lyrics are pretty hit or miss - the problem with writing honestly I guess.
