Band to Join, Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard, Lead Guitar, Rhythm Guitar.

ABOUT

I'm a drummer, rhythm guitar, bass, and vocalist. I also have a Masters in Music Recording and head a studio recording department at a school where we are currently working to build something quite reputable over time.

As much as I'd love to boast about having a full fledged studio, we're not quite there yet, but I am getting paid to get us there, and that's pretty cool! I can make high quality mixes, though! In the hopes of busting out my own project, I haven't posted my new stuff yet, but I'm more than willing to potentially put it towards a common goal!

My last band did fairly well, but I am hungry for performing again. I miss singing, screaming, interacting, and commanding a crowd. There's nothing more exhilarating for me.

Influences

Honestly, I write pop punk on instruments. It's what I listened to and played the most growing up as I learned to play those instruments.

However, I want to sing, scream, and rock faces off! To something heavier and more intricate and melodic. My voice has a little Chester Bennington, and a little Matty Mullins in there. Those guys (along with Sum 41 and Silverstein) are who I learned to scream to growing up. Don't judge. Hahaha. I really do appreciate almost all music... You know.

I'd love to bring that closer to the direction A Day to Remember, Bring Me The Horizon, and Periphery are going, but am also open to checking out any jams that are in any of these areas.

EQUIPMENT

2017 Fender American Standard Stratocaster HSH (I have 6 guitars, but this one is my baby).

Alesis DM8 Pro + Expansion Cymbals and an aftermarket DrumTec Mesh Head conversion. I used to rock a TAMA Rockstar until volume became an issue. I would probably momentarily contemplate murder for a Pork Pie kit. Don't worry. I won't do it... Wink wink.

Universal Audio Apollo Quad

Line 6 Helix

M-Audio Keystation 88es

Shure SM7B (and more mics)...

I use ProTools, Reason, and Ableton. If I list plug-ins I will run out of space.

I'm definitely closer to 50 gigs than 10, but I'd love the opportunity to crush those rookie numbers!
