Band to Join.

ABOUT

Have a variety of experience playing out - from rock to bluegrass to acoustic duos and solo. Do covers and originals, looking to push out on the latter. Have been on extended self-imposed hiatus due to work and family, but need to get back out an playing.

I am primarily a guitarist-vocalist, capable of both electric and acoustic. My keys are very rusty / comparatively limited. Mando is even more rusty (used to play it on a few tunes in the bluegrass days when guitar and mando would swap).

Seeking collaboration and am willing to commit based on the potential of the opportunity. Need to be tactical an efficient, but will clear decks as merited
