SEEKING

Band to Join, Vocalist, Other Percussion, Keyboard, Background Singer.

ABOUT

I don't want to 'select up to 4 genres of music'. My last band played sets that included non-Marley reggae, several tunes sung in African languages, a New Orleans romp, and "I Will Survive". The crowd loved it all, and so did we.

Groove can happen (or not) in almost any genre. What I love about playing bass is not the bass -- it's what happens when you mix it with the rest of the band and get...groove.

Influences

I find inspiration all over...from the 1001 bassists no one can name who played on the tunes we all know...to bands like Soulive, Ozomatli, Digable Planets, Stevie Wonder, Morcheeba, even Rush...to listening to "Con Salsa" at 3:00 am driving home from a gig...or the pop singer who happened to get a sick bassist on her day in the studio...
