ABOUT

I have been on hiatus from being in bands for the last 3 years. Previous to that, I had been continuously playing in bands in clubs on both coasts from the time I was 16. Over the last 2 years, I have written and recorded demo versions of about 40 songs (not the examples on my profile.) Whether using these songs, or coming up with new material, I am ready to start playing with other musicians.
I am told that I look much younger, but I am 43, nonetheless. That means that in addition to being serious about music, I am also serious about the life that I have created for myself in the absence of a record dea (life goes on, while you're making other plans.). So, I won't be jumping in a van with a bunch of 20-somethings and playing every hole in the wall that still books bands. Tried that already. BUT, I am not a typically flaky LA musician and I make time for what is important. Whatever unfolds with the right situation, will determine where it ultimately goes.
