ABOUT

Hello all!

My name is Joe and music has always been, and will continue to be, and important part of my life.

I am a classically trained vocalist with experience performing both in the booth and on the stage. I played for about 5 years in two separate bands, one of which was mostly hard rock (Crossfade, Breaking Benjamin, Avenged Sevenfold) and the second which was more of a band just for fun as my friends and I finished college (think Blink-182 meets Sublime with a hint of 311 and various other influences). I have played gigs ranging from 10 people up to about 4-600.

I also dabble in piano, I would by no means classify myself as a professional, but if you are looking for someone to plunk some chords - I can handle that.

I am looking to get back into the performing scene and am really open to many different genre types.

I will include a few links to some of my older bands songs for you to reference, and as always can try out live if that is something your interested in.

Links to my older bands:

Crowd Control (Hard Rock) (I recommend "Aint' Foolin Me")

Influences

I know that everyone will say that they have a very eclectic taste in music. I must admit that in my case this is certainly true. If you went through my iPod, in all the 13,000 songs you will find just about anything you could think of, and some things I would rather not admit to having ;). This collection ranges from classic rock, to the soundtrack from "Last Samurai" with all the pop punk, country, classical, rap, and techno in between.

I really favor singers in which the vocal tonality is unique, and does not sound like every other performer out there.

EQUIPMENT

I would have to scour my belongings but somewhere I should still have a Shure SM58 vocal microphone.

When performing live, I used a PSM-200 in ear monitoring system, however I have since sold that. If things got serious, I would consider investing in this again, as I felt it really tightened vocal performance.

I also have an entry level keyboard, nothing fancy but enough for a practice space.
