ABOUT

Right now doing a medley for open mics that's Pantera, Primus, Under Protest, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jaco Pastorius/Bach, Megadeath, Metallica, Slayer, Van Hallen, Jimi Hendrix and an Original. In all my past bands I've sang backup vocals. In the last few months, I've been trying to push my vocals into lead territory. Not quite there yet, but making progress fast. Lately I've also been listening to a lot of Mo-town, R&B type stuff. Looking to get away from the metal/jamband/classic rock stuff that I've been doing and getting into stuff with a little more of a groove. If my vocals skills make it up there, some day, you might see me covering Marvin Gaye, singing and playing. Not sure if my vocals will ever make it up there, but that's the dream for now. We'll see how far practice and vocal exercises from be, can take me.

Also, videos are not working for me on this site for some reason, so here are some URLs
