SEEKING

Band to Join, Violin.

ABOUT

I have experience recording and performing all over the Chicago area (from suburban/city dives, the Double Door, Metro, to festivals like Taste of Chicago and Milwaukee Summerfest and playing Soldier Field), but I have not gigged (i.e. not gigging, but I'm always playing) in years, may be a little rusty :). Trying to get back into it and looking to do something different from I what I have done in the past. Have a couple of project ideas in my head...

1) Guitar and Violin Duo: If you play violin, please go to y o u t u b e and search for "Stringspace Guitar & Violin Duo" to get an idea of what I have in my head.

2) Rootsy Rock/Americana: I really like the sound of Lucinda Williams' band when they do their rock stuff (e.g. Protection, Buttercup, Rightously, Bleeding fingers). Also like the sound of Ryan Adams and Drive By Truckers. Love Shelby Lynne's voice.

The music samples below are from previous bands that I played with and from solo recordings that I did at home.

I'm not looking to be a rock star. Not looking to tour. Money is not my motivation. I have a day job, but paid gigs are welcome. Basically just looking to play for the love of playing.
