ABOUT

I love to sing! I was the Lead singer for Movin' On, a rock cover band out of Springfield, OR. That band is now retired, so I am testing the waters up here in Salem. I would like to join or start something more acoustic rock/folk in the Salem area. Ideal set up, Vocals w/harmony, Guitars, Bass, Drums, Mandolin, Accordion(?), banjo(?), Strings and horns of some kind...open to trying new sounds. I would love to be able to do mellower coffee shops and louder clubs/bars. Message me and we can see what happens...
