ABOUT

I am a guitarist/songwriter. My default music is a unique blend of surfy post-punk, which can be heard in my demo here: thebugouts.

That said, I'm interested in branching out into more progressive, psychedelic, and electronic directions.

My overall style can be best heard through the music I have on and here, but in short, my rhythm is choppy staccato and triads like early Talking Heads and XTC, and my lead parts have a strong surf influence.
