ABOUT

Hi, I'm a singer songwriter recently back from Northern Cal, looking to form a band to deliver my original tunes and vision. I tend to write and perform with a particular high level intensity and humor, aspiring for ecstasy, and don't shy away from politics and difficult topics. I write a variety of songs and genres, from alternative rock and folk and reggae to Afro-beat to Latin, Jazz and Indian influenced - it depends on the song and anything goes. My music tends to have a theatrical flair to it, as well as a spiritual/devotional vibe, and I like to have as much fun as possible and feature my bandmates whenever possible.
