ABOUT

Multikeyboardist and vocals. Over the past couple of years, I've been gigging about 1-2 times/month. I've played in bands or solo off and on since I was 14, so have plenty of gigging experience. Now I just play for love of music (but still have a pro attitude, pro gear, and a commitment to performing well). My tastes in music run from most genres of rock through jazz, electronic, more acoustic-oriented styles. I'd describe myself as having jazz tastes with (only) a rock musician's knowledge and skills :)

Seeking mature, experienced, compatible musicians, preferably mid-30s and older.

Influences

Variety of influences: classic rock keyboardists (Jon Lord, Elton John, Keith Emerson, Gary Brooker); pop/jazz keyboardists (Bruce Hornsby); jazz keyboardists (Chick Corea, Keith Jarrett). Basically, I play by ear and my roots are in 60s-90s rock. I listen to all kinds of music, so have influences from jazz, country, and folk.
