ABOUT

Looking to get together with singers and players to make music with an "unplugged" feeling that could include acoustic as well as electric instruments. I want to make collaborative music that forms a unique, yet accomplished sound. Music with vocal harmonies and rich instrumentation that can include covers and originals. Looking for experienced musicians and singers. The purpose is to create a unique, pro-level sound and play gigs.

I have been playing for many years and have also done many types of music. When you listen to my songs above, I've given you a number of different styles to listen to. I'm looking to create something new, not anything I've done before.
