ABOUT

51-year old experienced singer and songwriter seeking to join a professional-quality local band to perform locally. I play acoustic guitar, piano and ukulele, plus a little bit of electric guitar and synthesizer and am working on learning finger drumming on a NI Maschine. My timing is my weakest area, but I diligently work on this every day. I practice music just about every day, using tutorials, books and videos, and I study voice. (Easy when you don't have kids.) I also do home recording (Logic Pro). Styles include singer/songwriter, acoustic alternative, alternative light rock and electronic. I love being exposed to and learning current music and am not stuck in any one decade. My singing voice is smooth and high, not overly powerful, but not overly soft either. I'm a very confident songwriter, constantly studying and working at my craft, and I'm writing better music now than I was writing in my twenties. I like to perform music in such a way that the audience is taken on a musical experience with a wide range of dynamics and emotion, often within a single song.
