ABOUT

Laid back, groove-oriented, supportive bass player. I believe in serving the song and playing to connect the dots in the band’s sound, as well as adding enough of my own style to the right amount of color to the pocket. Also believe that practicing/learning the song should be done at home on a band member’s own time, and rehearsal is the time to tighten it all up together, but love a nice long jam at rehearsals as well to brainstorm ideas as a group. Can also contribute some backing vocals and basic acoustic guitar, keyboards/synth and drums. I’ve been gigging for about 10 years and am new to the area, looking to find the right band to add the missing puzzle piece, or help build a project with the right people.
