ABOUT

Hello everyone, I hope all is in a good way with you.

I am a Bassist/Songwriter/Singer/Storyteller and Multi-instrumentalist (guitar, piano, percussions) but I'm and always will be a bassist first.

I'm in search of a committed, serious, dedicated, and badass Female singer/songwriter/guitarist (rhythm, lead, and acoustic) to form a duo with me who is also into haunting style voicing as well

NOT looking to form a band, just a duo with a FEMALE singer/songwriter/guitarist ONLY. I have many ideas and visions of what I'm looking and hoping to create. Don't let the half gray beard fool you. I have more energy than most people younger than me. Besides, I'm not that old ;)

Are you looking to create something completely different? Something unique? Do you want to just stand on stage and sing like everyone else? Or would you rather put on a memorable, theatrical type show that makes people talk about us long after they leave?

Please go to my website's "searching" section (link below) where you can read all the information about what I'm looking to create, who I'm looking for and what I'm hoping to build. (PLEASE READ ALL DETAILS COMPLETELY).

The style of music that I wrote for my first two albums is more of a jazz, rock, world, new age, classical, ambiance mixed together but with the duo, I'd like to create the same sound but a little heavier.

PLEASE NOTE: The cover songs I've posted here (and on my website) they are just for fun and not the direction or the sound I want to create with the duo.

If you're interested, please send me your contact info as well as a link to where I can find your music so I can see and hear you singing and playing. Or, if you know anyone that might be interested, please give her the link below.

If you'd like to learn more about me, please check out the rest of my website where you'll find my music history, my bio, my songs, and my contact info or you can also contact me here.

THANK YOU, I'm really looking forward to hearing from you soon.
