ABOUT

I'm an experienced touring multi-instrumentalist looking to start a new project. I currently have a handful of tunes ready to track, but I'm in need of a drummer, as well as a bassist as I'd really rather not track every instrument myself. The tunes are reminiscent of The Black Keys, as well as The Raconteurs.
