ABOUT

Main keyboardist for Cool Device, 2/2019

Mostly influenced by 70s and 80s Rock, R&B/Funk, Soul, Jazz, Blues. I'm mainly a keyboard player (piano, synth, organ) but embarking on a new adventure as a guitarist. Strummed guitars for thirty-some years, but now working on lead skills, which are my weak spots; looking for a Rhythm guitar gig to get in the game to challenge and push myself beyond the practice room.

Anything worth doing requires a good work ethic. I am highly motivated, I learn quickly, and devote at least an hour a day to skill building and practicing.

Hope to hear from you!
