ABOUT

Vocalist, percussionist, lyricist. I write song parodies and have written a few originals over the years; would love to collaborate with others to flesh those originals out more. I would also love to collaborate on jamming, rehearsing, playing gigs around town, and possibly recording. I'd like a shot at the music industry (whatever THAT IS), but mainly I want to have fun playing music with others and for others.
