Vocalist.

ABOUT

52 years old, not looking to "make it", but to make great music (whether original or covers) and have a lot of fun in the process. I have a full time job and a kid with his own original band. Very much in to hard rock/metal, but also enjoy blues, funk, swing, classic rock, or just about anything that has a groove to it. More of an "in the pocket" player. I'll set the pace, let you do your thing, and fill in where needed. I have my own PA and recording gear. I can add drums tracks via Studio One to demos. So if you are writing and want a drummer to put down a basic drum track instead of depending on your software, send me a message. Currently drummer for hard rocking Internal Fire in Houston, TX. Working on our first album, so that is my priority. Always open to discussion about a secondary project to assist with songwriting demo's, fill in's, and places I can help that aren't long term commitments.

Also a seasoned concert photographer and videographer with a couple of music videos under my belt.

Intermediate level recording and mixing experience. I have portable recording equipment, make decent mixes (enough to help pieces individual pieces to make a demo level tune), add a basic drum track if needed.
