SEEKING

Rhythm Guitar, Keyboard.

ABOUT

I primarily play bass; I am also a singer (baritone range).

I am currently involved with a new progressive metal project (yet to be named) with drummer Lee Corrado (ex-CypherSeer, ex-Visualist), guitarist Andrew Pevny (Framework, Daughter Chaos, ex-Armageddon), and vocalist Zeno Rodrigo (ex-CypherSeer, ex-Visualist). We are currently seeking to add a keyboard player and/or rhythm guitarist to round out the lineup.

Prior to this current project, I was most recently with the modern hard rock band Siravo. My bass work can be found on the band’s EP “Hearts & Minds” (2013) as well as the albums “Vassal” (2015) and the “The Restless & The Mad” (2018).

Before Siravo, I was in the classic rock band The Tired Starlings, the celtic rock band Cenedl, the Beatles tribute band James Eaton & The Feelgood Band, and the Christian rock group dt65.
