ABOUT

Update May 4, 2021

Looking for musicians to work with myself and a drummer/multi-instrumentalist. Many paths to choose, but searching for alternative, indie, and unique sounds. Love to do bass, drums, keyboards and vocals, guitar, and other ideas?

Enjoying collaborations with some very talented musicians right now, always keen to consider any work that someone may need to fill in a project or a song. If you have work that needs a special ear and touch, I'd be happy to talk. I can do remote work, have DAW, can export to most formats (PC-based so iOS is tougher) or just raw export.

I've been playing for years, almost entirely original material. I spent a few years in a great cover band, but decided to return to writing and performing original songs. I cover a lot of territory, but focus mostly on Alternative/Indie. Wouldn't object to covers, but interspersed with originals.

I love sad songs. I also appreciate shoegaze/dreampop and a good deal of early Emo. The lyrics I write tend towards introspection, and many times sadness. It is like a pressure release valve, I suppose.

An interesting aside - my band 90 North were included in the Spin Magazine CD Sampler in 1993, with our song "Arkman". That was pretty cool! (Note: Song is in the list below)
