ABOUT

I am a versatile bassist with plenty of experience. I've played 100's of shows, recorded 6 full length studio albums, toured regularly for three years, and I have also done studio work for other musicians. Very professional and dedicated to my craft. I am also available for studio work or as a fill-in bassist if needed.

I'm currently in a hard rock band based out of NY, however, I am looking to join a band similar to or start up something funky/alternative as a side gig (Similar to RHCP, 311, Kings of Leon, Primus, Your Sisters Ass). I'm available days until 6:00 p.m. during the week due to a 3rd shift work schedule from 7:00 p.m. - 3:30 a.m. I'm also available whenever on Saturday's and Sunday early evenings.

Any other questions, feel free to call or text (570)335-3213.

Have played in bands:
-Octalux (Kentucky)
-Bury the Wicked (Kentucky)

-Cause of Affliction (Local)

Influences

I don't really have any influences since I have developed my own style as a player and as a musician over the years. If anything, I would have to say my influences are cheeseburgers, chicken wings, toilet paper and the people I am in a band with since we work off of each other writing wise. I can't say someone whom I never met before that doesn't even know or care if I'm dead in a ditch somewhere is an influence of mine.

Instrument experience:

Bass Guitar:
Advanced

EQUIPMENT

Well, me of course. I will also most likely show up with my Mesa Boogie bass head and a Mesa Boogie 610 bass cabinet, Warwick Basses, boss overdrive, Dogfish Head 60 minute IPA, chorus and wah pedals. I don't get too technical, quit tap dancing and play me a fucking song. I only care about one knob, and that's volume.
