ABOUT

Rhythm/lead guitarist looking for other musicians to write originals with. Let me tell you a little bit about myself: I’ve been playing guitar for 20 years and have plenty of experience working with other bands I’ve been involved with in the past. Im a diesel mechanic which is great work but I dont wanna do that for the rest of my life. In the recent years I've realized that I wont be satisfied with my life unless I'm doing something with music. I'd trade it all just to make this happen. Just so you have an idea of how committed I am! Writing music is what I live for. The music produced now a days lacks the soul and the raw emotion that drove the youth back in the day. There are so many songs from back then that are timeless and still popular now. How many songs are being produced now a days that are gonna have the same effect as those songs did? None. Let's change that.
