I have been in love with writing music from a very early age which began on the bass guitar at 12 years old. I switched over to lead guitar at age 14. I spent many years developing technique to play intricate and fast melodies on the electric guitar and have spent the last two years dedicated to learning and writing blues and alternative acoustic music using travis picking techniques classical style playing and some flamenco. I am looking for a singer who is in the realm of KT Tunstall, Joy Williams and Stevie Nicks because I believe the style I write in would do well with a vocalist who sings alto. I am open to both covers and originals.
