ABOUT

Experienced, Berklee-trained bassist looking to start or join an established band. I have played bass and fronted for bands in Houston, LA, and Boston. I go to school for Music Business/Management, have a job, don't do drugs. I am looking for a professional atmosphere with musicians who know their instruments, know their scene, and interested in doing something different. I'm here to make music that is passionate, expressive, and mature, and I am looking for like-minded people. Sorry if I sound like a hardass, I do in fact also enjoy having fun, going out for a beer, etc. I play video games, League of Legends, read, drink coffee, etc.

Contact/Email me if interested at judodude12

Please, no breakdown/metalcore bands. I'm not interested in tuning my bass any lower than a half-step down. If you can riff like Will Swan or Thomas Erak, talk about nice amps/pedals/tone, and/or enjoy finely crafted belgian beer, we'll be great friends.
