Band to Join, Vocalist, Vocalist - Baritone, Vocalist - Tenor, Rhythm Guitar, Background Singer.

ABOUT

Looking to join a band as a lead singer and/or rhythm guitarist and back up vocals --- also interested in acoustic duos. I have a some tunes written and a handful of semi-developed ideas, but really love working with others on evolving it to mean something to all involved.

I'm a trained singer of 20+ years and self-taught guitarist of 15+ years.

-- My vocal influences include: Myles Kennedy, Dallas Green, Jared Leto, Roger Daltrey, Freddie Mercury, & Brandon Boyd. I'm a big proponent of strong vocals, tight harmonies, and super melodic vocal lines.
--I consider myself a strong rhythm guitarist. I can picks up quickly and am very comfortable with chords, tabs, and learning by ear.

Places to hear some singing and guitar playing (rhythm):
Look up "Vertigo Drift" on Spotify or your preferred streaming platform as well as some sample music on here as well (will be updating more soon).
