ABOUT

Moving to state college and looking for others interested in Irish and folk rock. When I gig solo I play a lot of Tom Petty, Beatles, Grateful Dead, and Irish stuff like Irish rovers, saw doctors, waterboys, great big sea. Hoping to sync up with a strong lead instrumentalist and build from a duo with me on rhythm guitar (at least to start, I’m a bassist first and foremost).
I’m open to any instrumentalist if you’re into the same stuff. For example... Someone ripping jig and reel leads on a saxophone would actually be pretty interesting.

I do a lot of original music as well. I’ve had over 5k monthly listeners on Spotify for over a year now. Would love to sneak in some of those tunes here and there as well depending on the gig.
