moss bass


Lead Guitar, Drums, Keyboard.


Although my foundation originates from studying Jazz since I was 14 years old, I don't like to limit myself to being an exclusive "Jazz Player". I'm interested in too many musics and enjoy rocking out too much to do that. That being said, I still LOVE Jazz (especially in the vain of Ornette Coleman and Miles), but I'm mostly interested in taking what I've learned from Jazz and trying to make something else. I also love Metal, Hardcore Punk, and Reggae. These are all just marketing names anyway. It's all just music--there are 2 types of music: Good and Bad.
