ABOUT

Living on Cape Cod, looking for a group/community of homies to make music and vibe up with... do I fill this out like a dating website? Kinda feels that way... I'm a drummer, guitarist, and lyricist/vocalist of 10 years or so, currently without a vehicle. I'm also a pretty great photographer. I've got a lot of songs written, though I don't write or read musical notation very well. Some of the songs I've written I've recorded on a small portable device and uploaded to , the link to which is on this page somewhere; I play all the instruments on the recordings, but that doesn't work live. I'm looking for members in a band to throw what they feel at some of the songs, get some jams co-laborated, and see where the river takes us! I love long walks in the woods and sunny morning cuddles, and I hope we can have a puppy together someday.

EQUIPMENT

GUITAR: Epiphone Les Paul Special II with a tremolo bar and a Fishman Connect MIDI pickup/controller. Also have a fretless strat that gets some pretty amazing tones. I run my guitar(s) and MIDI through an array of effects; distortions, phasers/modulation, delay and reverb, a dum machine and looper. I often have a microphone running into the pedalboard too, tapping in at the delay/reverb station, for effects with vocals or acoustic instruments like drums, flutes, and shakers. Crate Vintage Club 60w Amp
DRUMS: Pearl shells (bass- 22", looking to downsize- rack t, floor t, snare), zildjian hats and crashes, and some off-brand ride that sounds dank and jazzy as heck.
I also have a few Native-style flutes I've been getting to know for a few years.
