SEEKING

Vocalist.

ABOUT

I'm a guitar player with a fantastic keyboard player. We need a vocalist. Stylistically, we're going in the directions of Missing Persons, Chvrches, Garbage, and Blondie with some B-52s, Republica, and Deee-Lite to top it off.

We're starting with some covers just to get things going and to see how it feels and sounds. We're based in Burbank.

I've been working as a tech in recording studios for around twenty-five years; I approach music as an artist, but also as a technician. I'm very steeped in music theory, but feel that emotional value in music is by far the most important ingredient.

I also play keyboards, sing background vocals, and play percussion.

I grew up in the eighties and I dress like I raided David Lee Roth's closet.
