ABOUT

**Guitars/Keyboards playing gritty blues-inspired rock and catchy pop.(Guitar/Keyboard driven pop that is)**

I am a 40 year old songwriter/guitarist/keyboardist with plans on being successful. I am deeply passionate about good songwriting and translating it to guitar and keyboard. I love listening to blues, blues rock, and 90's rock but my writing also has pop inclinations. It's time to bring back good music to the masses! Gandhi said "Be the change you want to see in the world,"

I am looking for a drummer, keyboardist, bass player, and possible 2nd guitarist and vocalist who are between the ages of 30-45, male or female, I am flexible on the ages depending on the person. Do you like the same music I do? Do you want to do the same?

Influences

In terms of songwriting its a mix of Stevie Ray Vaughan, ZZ Top, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Johnny Cash, Collective Soul, The Eagles, Tom Petty, and Alanis Morissette. This
mix emphasizes passion, creativity, great songwriting and awesome guitars. That's the goal, to balance them to blow your mind.

My main focus is songwriting and if its a good song, it could be any almost any genre. So I'm not locked into to writing a specific one. It's based more on mood than anything else.

I listen to all kinds of stuff though including Jazz and Classical.
