ABOUT

Have been doing mostly solo performances over the past few years, but want to work in a band context (new or established) again that has the right people and focus.

I want to gig regularly, so anyone I play with must be up for that too. I expect that I'll continue to gig doing my solo acoustic stuff, as long as it makes sense. If the demands of a band have me dial those kind of gigs back, so be it.

I have been doing some songwriting across a few different genres. Have a few different small projects that I am developing for placement on stock music sites. Am open to songwriting with others, if the chemistry is there.

I'm straightforward and real -- beyond the point in my life where I want or need drama or egos battling each other. I have my interests straight -- it's all about the music and performing.

If you can get behind all of what I've written here, we should talk! ;-)

EQUIPMENT

Plenty of guitars, a good amp for shows, the pedals/effects I like and supporting tools (as needed). If I need other pedals, effects or whatever to make a gig/band work, I'll get them. It's not an issue for me.
