ABOUT

I do textured keys, MPC beats, rhodes, synth, effects. For 15 years I lived in Nashville and played in many pro bands/studio work(my photos are from those days). since 2012 I live in chester county PA. I like all kinds of music and have extremely eclectic listening habits, everything from Billie Holiday to Sly and the Family Stone to Wilco, Radiohead, NIN to Bjork and back again. I joined this site cause I would like to pursue a somewhat specific vision for a recording project in PA, and figured I would put it out there: I am hoping to find a female vocalist/songwriting collaborator who would understand how to mix some early Jazz and R+B singing tones with more modern/trip hop/aggressive electronic styles like Bjork, NIN or Sigur Ros(so billie holiday/etta james type tone meets bjork, radiohead, NIN or zero 7 influenced modern styles). also would try some up=tempo electronic beats to sing over, but prefer a focus on a dark and groovy vibe. I am less about making money with this and more about trying to create something really unique and beautiful. Immerse in those sounds and do something fun with it. maybe live cover some massive attack, phantogram, zero 7, tool or NIN. song examples to understand where I am trying to start from: FC Kahuna - hayling, sneaker pimps - 6 underground, bjork - hyperballad, nin : closer zero 7 - the waiting line, massive attack - teardrop, mezzanine Ideally would write / record a 5 song EP and gig out regionally 2/month, see where it goes. I would provide the beats, grooves, analog electronics and a real Rhodes. Eventually would overlay a live drummer and bass for gigs, but not neccesary to get started writing/recording.
