ABOUT

Looking for something original hopefully. I'd hate to pigeonhole myself and miss a good opportunity, so I’m open to a paying cover gig. However, ideally I'm looking to start or join a band as a drummer/vocalist/lyricist. Something along the lines of Darkthone, meets High on Fire, meets Napalm, meets whatever else I like. Doomy, Black, Grindy and Crusty with old school Punk influences (that's not all I like or listen to). I wish to play all tempos. Yes, I can play blast beats and double bass but that's not what I want to do the whole time (boring). It doesn't necessarily have to be any genre. Good is good. Planning out a band never works anyway. Just play and see where it goes. (No Metalcore!)

I'm also always up for studio gigs, and would also consider playing bass and/or vocals for the right project.

Musicians Institute graduate, Music Director, highly experienced. Currently writing material for a solo project, playing all instruments.
