ABOUT

In a couple of bands (one originals and one mostly covers) but practices have been sporadic so looking to jam with any bands or other players looking for a steady bass player. For me it’s all about creating a pocket and adding some flavor here and there, but only if it supports the song. Like being creative with covers and also original improvised stuff, and able to contribute to songwriting and lyrics as well on original stuff. Also just as happy jamming in various covers of rock, alternative, punk, blues, alt country, harder blues based rock, classic and southern rock. Like all styles but I don’t really play any slap.
