ABOUT

Experienced pro guitarist/singer hoping to either join a good band or start a duo with a female vocalist. I'm currently in a duo with a talented and dear friend, but she can only do 1-2 gigs per month. I'd like to work more than that, which is why I'm here.

I've tried to show a little versatility with my posts here, but I don't actually need that from a band or musician/singer. I'm mainly hoping to find competent people who I can connect with musically. Having that, I can usually be flexible with stuff like # of gigs, distance, material, etc.

Love any music with a good groove and/or great harmonies, but happy to play most anything that's crowd pleasing. I'm very experienced playing Rock, Pop, R&B, Blues, acoustic or light Jazz. I'll do a bit of cross-over country stuff, like Chris Stapleton or Lady-A, but if your a country band or do a lot of it, I'm definitely the wrong choice for you. Also not interested in joining a metal band, even though I do love some of it.

I have thousands of hours of live music experience with either bands, duos, solo stuff, musical directors, etc. I do have live audio/video footage that's been shared by band leaders/managers that I've worked for in the past, but they're not really mine to post, plus most of it doesn't specifically feature me, so I mostly chose to record some things from home instead. Sorry for the poor lighting, etc. Hopefully you like what you hear and see enough to contact me, but good luck to you, either way.
