ABOUT

Versatile drummer seeking established band. I have been playing drums since I was 12 years old or so. I've played in mostly original bands performing progressive rock, acoustic/folk, indie-rock, blues, jam bands, and I've played in a few cover bands as well. I also write, record and produce music for videos, mostly documentaries and short-films. I'd say I'm looking to join a band within this spectrum: acoustic, classic rock, country, funk, folk, indie, pop, reggae, rock, and soul. Looking for some dedicated musicians who are driven, mature, laid-back, intelligent, etc.

My website is .ColorToneMusic --- not a good representation of my drumming because I typically program MIDI drums, but I should be putting together a video or recording soon to sample my work as a drummer.
