ABOUT

ABOUT ME

I love recording albums, touring and adventure.

I am a guitarist, bassist, vocalist and drummer and I have studio recording experience in all those areas. I have touring experience as a guitarist, bassist and vocalist. I am currently in several semi-serious bands but I am looking for something even more serious and/or adventurous. I have a lot going on but if I find something more serious that will be my priority.


LOOKING FOR

I'm always looking for vocalists, guitarists, bassists and drummers to add to my current projects or start new ones.

I'm also looking for an awesome, established band to jump into.

I'm into heavy shoegaze, space-rock, post-rock, alternative, kinda stuff but would be into something else if it is sufficiently awesome.


PAST AND CURRENT WORK

Some of past my bands with album releases:

Other Fictions is one of my current bands. We just finished recording our first album and releasing it soon. One of our tracks is on this profile (You Won't Fall).

Batter The Drag (with 2 releases)

Worser (with 1 release)

The Dagg Nabbit Stubbs (with 2 releases)

The Bones Have Spoken is another one of my current bands and we are currently in the studio.

Telesis is another. Planning on recording an album later this year.


MORE DETAILS

For money, I am a freelance web developer so I can work whenever I want and work from the road. This gives me plenty of income for any music related expenses but doesn't require too much time and I can tour whenever I want.

Also I have a good amount of experience recording decent quality demos.

Also a professional graphic design for a while.
