ABOUT

Former DJ/electronic music producer, current multi-instrumentalist (drums, lead guitar, bass). I'm almost a year into working & learning solo, but would add about a year of cumulative music experience before that to round myself out at an intermediate level with ~2 years of experience. Ideally I'd like to start or join a psychedelic/indie/space rock band a la Tame Impala, Pond, Post Animal, or King Gizzard but playing in a tribute band would be just as cool. Drum-wise I'm inspired by Bonham, Starr, Mitchell, Krupa, and Porcaro--crazy fills are cool but I prefer to serve the song. Guitar-wise I'm very much a Gilmour student with some Page and Harrison thrown in, getting more into Reinhardt these days. I'm picking up bass and have no problem with simpler lines due to my time on guitar, but I'm no John Paul Jones. I should clarify that the drums on the tracks I have up are programmed & not live; I'll have some videos up soon, please reach out if you'd like to hear me play anything! Gigs played are also as a DJ & not with live instruments yet.
P.S. I'd very much like to avoid transporting my heavy kit, so if you happen to have one or are serious about jamming, I'd like to feel our relationship out before picking up some more portable pieces (smaller kick, gig cases, etc)
P.P.S. I think it's very important for a band to at least get along and respect each other. Good vibes and all that.
