Bio:
I’m a multi-genre musician and multi-instrumentalist. I specialize in bass guitar, lead vocals & rhythm guitar but I also play lead guitar, piano & drums. Genre wise I specialize in “heavy” music, not necessarily rock or metal but heavier music in general. I also specialize in Jazz, Funk, Classical and almost any other genre but personally I enjoy “heavy” music. I’ve been playing guitar for 13 years, bass (upright/electric) for 8 years, vocals for 3 years and drums & piano for 2 years. I have studied bass (upright/electric) for 8 years and both vocal jazz and chamber choir for 2 years. I’ve been studying music theory and history for 8 years and have spent lots of time in both classical/common practice period and jazz theory so I know my in’s and out’s of music. I’ve been professionally performing music for 4 years now mostly as a subbing bassist and lead vocalist & bassists for the New Wave of American Metal band Devil’s Knights. Currently I am seeking a new group of musicians who share an open-minded approach to music as I do so I am definitely open to any experimental groups or bands exploring new places. I am looking for already established bands or musicians who have performed and studied music regularly.
