ABOUT

Getting back in the game post 8 years out for Military. Open-minded. I'm mostly a guitarist but have experience with other things as well. The past year I've been doing a lot of writing and improving my drumming. By the end of this year I will have recorded an EP and started learning the violin. I have a "Jimi Brewer" (profile pic is the dog sitting with a laptop) and as well, Jimi Brewer. And a be channel "MrVexfly" I only have a free account here so I don't know if you can see my videos or hear my audio I've uploaded here. thus I'm sharing where else you can find me. Mostly I upload to my FB page, rarily do I upload to and even more rarily on be.

I've played in almost every type of band under the sun except country and have performed a good bit as well. Hell, I even had a hip-hop project for a few years (lasted a little too long lol). I worked at a studio for short-while and also had my own home-studio back before things like that were as easy as they are now. I'm not 100% set on what I want to do or what I hope to achieve so I'm open-game but I mostly intend to be a guitarist and/or vocalist, but whatever works is what works!

Let's have fun and do amazing things together! Jimi Brewer(FB/sound cloud) MrVexfly (Utube)

I rarely post videos on be, everything goes to my FB page and I haven't uploaded newer audio recordings in awhile (still not happy w/ the drum audio quality and vox audio quality)
