ABOUT

Adult male bass guitarist with ~25 years of performance experience. I've recorded seven albums and played hundreds of gigs with various bands. I enjoy most styles of rock music from classic to contemporary. I am a seasoned backing vocalist, classically trained with a strong range and sense of harmony. I have a family and a career, thus music is only a hobby at this point in my life, but it's a hobby that I enjoy tremendously and take seriously. I arrive at practices and gigs punctually and prepared. Finally, I have pro-quality gear, reliable transportation, and no expectations of making money from my music. Please let me know if you think I can contribute to your ensemble. I'd be happy to meet and audition.

Influences

Music has been my primary interest my entire life, so listing a few influences here seems arbitrary. My all-time favorite rock bands would include Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and Rush but I don't necessarily expect to perform such material in a band. I'm just as likely to be listening to The Beatles, Ryan Adams, Pete Yorn, Decemberists, or Iron & Wine on any given day.
