ABOUT

First and foremost: I'm already in a band called Townsville. I want to consider it my "main" band but I would love to join other groups and just have fun!

A little about me:
I pride myself in my unique sound and talents as a bass player. I genuinely love the instrument. I started playing bass in college after about 5 years of playing guitar and immediately became obsessed. I used to get home from classes, pick up my bass, play it until the next morning, pick up my back pack and repeat the day over. I am set apart from other bass players because I generally make it my top priority to bring the other instruments in the band to life. It is important as a bass player to know when to go all out and when to cut back.

As far as my uniqueness goes- I generally love having a large set of pedals at my disposal. That in itself doesn't constitute being unique but I try my best to combine all my influences to make my own unique sound. If I were to describe myself, it would be a cross between Flea and Justin Chancellor from Tool.

I'm proficient in finger technique, slap bass and pick. I use whatever that suits the style of the song.

I'm also really easy to get along. I'm a self proclaimed music geek and can spend hours talking about music and gear :)
