ABOUT

Thank you for your inquiry.

I'm looking to make more time for music in my life.
Does music move you? Are you looking to write music of your own design?

Guitarist of 30 years looks to find a drummer or other interested and competent musicians/existing bands for an original music endeavor. I'm a chill guy, but carry self discipline to attain self driven goals. I'm creative and see the guitar as a way to create art on a canvas of sound.

What brings me here?

I am also a visual artist and would love to create soundtracks for time lapse videos of paintings. I would love to find a drummer to play off of and write interesting passages in music. I use drumming software these days but miss playing with a living drummer. I am however, open to playing with other musicians who want to write original material and see where jam sessions and discoveries may lead.

I love great passages of music with movement and have always been intrigued by the interplay of drums and guitars. I appreciate many genres and play by ear. The guitar is my main instrument. I have a bass and keyboard I use with home recordings.

I have experience in original projects all of them with vocalists and recording professionally in studios as well as brief touring. Instrumental music is a type of music I am open to as well... In those projects we cowrote the material. I know how to engage with other musicians in a way that allows the music to emerge organically.

If I come across an opportunity where people are writing and creating their own music and offer me to join the ride, I am open to investigate.

There is music inside of me that is trying to get out. I'm not interested in a cover band or playing someone's material. I am interested in writing music that comes from within, something new. I prefer to share that with others and create together. My ego is checked at the door and yours should be too.

I wield professional gear, and understand the art of listening...you should too. I'm primarily looking for the right drummer. I am open to other musicians.

I believe chemistry is important. I have a job, think outside of the box, take care of my loved ones, and am willing to invest in the music and balance it with the other aspects of my life.

Are you wanting to write and leave your own mark? I'm certainly going to.
