ABOUT

Upright & electric bassist looking for others to collaborate with for jazz, funk, or acoustic projects. Currently have an excellent drummer and would love to find piano/keys interested in jazzy/funky trio. I'm also totally open to joining other already established projects.
I work professionally as an audio engineer and have an extensive recording/live sound background as well as my own recording equipment.
I enjoy gigging, but I have no illusions of making it my full time job. I have bills to pay and have no desire to live like a full time musician.
I'm interested in playing with skilled musicians that have a passion for high quality sound and enjoy recording projects as well as occasional gigging.
Needs to be fun above everything else. Gigs are lots of fun, but not when it's only for the $.
