ABOUT

I played bass in a cover band throughout middle school and high school. I played primarily classic rock covers from the 70s, 80s, and 90s, with a few pop crowd pleasers sprinkled in. I had the pleasure of performing on the Shiprocked cruise, at the Rock and Roll hall of game, and various gigs in my hometown, Kansas City. I grew to really miss playing and performing while I was in college. I am now a working adult and looking to get back into playing gigs. I’m a meat and potatoes, stay in the pocket kind of player — not really one to frill up my bass lines, just appreciate songs the way they were written— which I think makes me well suited for a cover band. I have a stable income and schedule, as well as reliable transportation. I can carry a tune and have sung back-up before, but I’m not lead singer material by any means!

EQUIPMENT

I’m a southpaw and primarily play a fender jazz, but I also have a 4 string schecter Stilleto. I sold my ashdowb half stack and boss multi-effect board before moving, so I’m currently working with a small crate practice amp, but I’m planning on buying new gear after settling in SLC.
