ABOUT

I've performed live all over the west coast and parts of the midwest along with outdoor venues, backyard parties, medium sized amphitheaters along with I've the occasional dive. As long as it pays no gig is too big or small. within reason on the small side. I've already lived through some of the most hilarious Spinal Tap incidents and if you're a musician you will get the joke. Looking for a band that wants to do a mix of originals and some covers. Seasoned vets only please. prefer a female singer unless I can find a really toneful male singer. Seems hard to find in Oregon. Not for a lack of trying. I prefer to start working with the singer first on the material I've written which have lyrics so we can work on the phrasing and the vocal harmonies together.. After a few months of that I would either like to look for other musicians or an open minded band that want the same things or at least close.I love rock infused with electronic and vintage synth stuff. There are only a few new bands I like because everything seems to be rap or really bad R&B. Think of a mix between Keep Shelly in Athens and Evanescence (The first album) but not limited to that I have a huge amount of influences

Bogner Ecstasy, Friedman BE-100, AxeFx III Mk 2, 4-4x12's 2 custom shop Les Pauls, American made custom shop Charvels with fender headstock (thought I should mention that), American Vintage Seafoam Green Telecaster, enough pedals to choke a goat, great tone and feel. looking for people that really want to do original music and I'm totally for writing music together, I've just been writing music for a long time and have quite a few really good songs that I think the right group of people would really enjoy playing and being a part of.
