ABOUT

Looking to start or join a band more on the progressive side with an anything goes attitude. I'm a self taught guitarist with around 25 years experience of playing in various original bands. I can write and create basically on the spot. Spent my past 10 years as guitarist for NJ based band Mind Riot, look us up at mindriotbandcom. I was also a vocalist (basically screaming) for many years in a progressive metal band. Looking to meet up with like minded musicians that love to have fun playing but can be serious when we need to be. But not too serious. That ruins the fun.

Influences

My influences are a little bit of everything and then some. Grew up listening to various bands like Pink Floyd, Zeppelin, Bob Marley and Van Halen and fell in love with bands like Deftones, Nirvana, Pantera and Soundgarden. My heavy side is influenced by metal bands like Unearth, August Burns Red, Everytime I Die and BTBAM. My soft side is bands like Dispatch, Porcupine Tree, DMB, and dub style reggae. With that being said I love basically all styles of music and listen to a lot more then listed. I’m always looking to broaden my horizons. I’m always willing to venture into something new and exciting. Music is an art. I respect and enjoy all forms of it.
