ABOUT

Greetings! I'm looking to join an Americana type band to just play around with in a garage and some small bar gigs.

I like it hard and soft alike, non-western influences, distinct instrumentation, sound dynamics, traditional European folk influences... a range from John Hartford to Led Zeppelin to Sigur Ros to Grateful Dead. My strengths are electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and electric bass. I can play a dutiful mandolin and banjo when necessary, but nothing too flashy, and can hack it on the keys & drums if they just don’t show up.
