I can play nearly any style of music--way more than listed here. I have many years of studio and live performance experience with a wide variety of bands. I've been on several records. I also work as a recording engineer. I have a Grammy nominated song that I engineered. Examples of my work can be heard here: ://.freewebs/lowendr/grtunes.htm
I prefer to work in original bands where the music comes first, but I have been in lots of cover bands, and I already know tons of material.
At gigs, people always tell me that I am amazing. I try to stay modest, despite that. I consider myself a perpetual student, always trying to become better.

Lost in Bass
Lost in Bass Genre: Cover/Tribute
This is a version of the 2nd "Lost in Space" theme from the old TV show that I did playing all the parts on various basses. It was for fun and to show off the editing/arranging that I was learning at the time. Lots more of my more serious songs can be heard here:http://lowendr.webs.com/grtunes.htm
What Lies Deep
What Lies Deep Year: 2008 Album: Low Hanging Fruit Genre: Other
This rough piece is from my first solo effort, made with no budget, entirely on a laptop, entirely with software processing. No instruments other than Bass Guitars were used to create the sounds of everything other, except drums and percussion of course, which is all samples. Recorded, edited, mixed by me.
While You Were Asleep
While You Were Asleep Year: 2006 Album: Ritual's second album - never released Genre: Alternative
I was in a band called Ritual for a few years, where I co-wrote many tunes and always wrote the bass parts. This is a later tune from that era.

Leveler's music is intense prog/jazz/funk/rock, musically challenging to play and very fun to listen to. Afternoon show with lots of other bands!
Sitting in with the great Ray Jay, playing blues, funk, and rock covers!
