ABOUT

I'm a guitarist and songwriter who's new to the area, and I'm looking for some kindred spirits to connect with and start putting together the building blocks for a project.

I haven't reacquired gear for gigs since relocating to California, but I have a lot of song ideas that I can convey on an acoustic guitar I own. The project I have in mind is ambitious and elaborate (I'm coming into this with a fully conceptualized album idea), and I'd like to form an intimate partnership with someone who can help me develop, actualize, and elevate the material with their own valuable input.

What I'm looking to establish here, initially, is a gestational phase, and the scope of what I'm trying to do necessitates length and depth with respect to that. Once a solid foundation has been established, I intend to move things in professional direction.

At first, I'd ideally like to meet someone with whom I can develop a songwriting partnership. Another guitarist is probably preferable. One who can sing as well and collaborate with me on lyrics would go a long way, but I don't want to limit making any possible connection that might complement this vision.

I'd be happy to elaborate more on this. There's a lot of ground to cover. So please don't hesitate to reach out if any of this has piqued your interest. Below I've put links to a few of my songs, and there's more on my channel. And side note, I'm playing them on an acoustic, but they're written to be played on electric and with a full band.

Anyways, looking forward to hearing from you!

- Jay
