ABOUT

Hi, I've been performing since I was in grade school, playing electric guitar in church. Played lead guitar in a couple of high school bands nothing special there. Played lead guitar and sang lead and background vocals with Unity the Band out of Appleton, Wi. Played with them for five years and toured all around the Midwest. We averaged about 200 shows a year, and won many WAMI(Wisconsin Area Music Industry) awards for best world and reggae band.

I've spent the last few years on my own taking production classes online through Berkley School of Music Online. I've put in lots of time making a functional studio in my basement. So far I haven't posted anything from my recordings down there, but I will be soon. I'm just finalizing a few things in the mastering phase. Almost there : )

Meanwhile I've been working with a very talented Singer/Drummer named Karl Mueller, who is currently playing for spitfire rodeo. While we don't have a bassist yet that hasn't stopped us from building a full set list of cover songs for us to do a two man acoustic show until we find the perfect bassist. I have recently purchased a new PA system which I have successfully used for a couple of wedding ceremonies that I also performed at and I am currently recording promotional cover songs in my studio to use for future shows.

My goal is to find a bass player who has a good understanding of music theory, songwriting, and possibly a singer. I believe if we can find one we will have probably the best trio in the Fox Valley. I have all the resources for booking, performing, and recording. We just need that final piece of the puzzle.
