ABOUT

I am a bass player/songwriter with 35 years of experience.
I can also play guitar, drums, keyboard, and sing. I’m proficient enough to be able to write parts for songs, although my preference is to play bass in a band situation.
I’m looking for male/female musicians that want to write and record music for fun.
If something more comes from it cool, if not still cool.
Basically I'd rather spend as much time as necessary perfecting songs until we have an albums worth of quality material before even considering playing out.
Mostly, I just want to have fun writing and recording music with other open minded musicians.
I would like to find a singer, drummer, guitarist, and a keyboardist.
I am also open to the idea of other musicians such as string players, percussionists, & electronica musicians. Even working with another bass player seems interesting to me.
Songwriting ability and un-restricted creativity is a must. I would like to discover our own sound instead of focusing on trying to create a particular style of music.
I also have a modest little recording studio setup.
Please check out my songs that were written, performed, and recorded by me to get an idea of what I can accomplish.
If any of this sounds interesting to you please contact me.

Influences

I am more influenced by particular songs than an entire band.
If you know what I mean by that, then you might be the kind of musicians that I'm looking for.
These are some bands that I dig though....The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Foo Fighters, Smashing Pumpkins, System of a Down, Ween, Beck, Alice in Chains, Love/Hate, Frank Black, Jane's Addiction, Presidents of the United States of America, King's X, The Rentals, and Early Alice Cooper just to name a few.
