SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Other, Electronic Music.
Love to be in a great band writing and playing meaningful, deep stuff. Need a drummer who loves his/her craft, like, that's all they've ever wanted to do. Will most likely have tracks to play to as well (but never a click, instead play to their own recorded beats on the headset as well as the room mix, but backing tracks will be over the house PA). Need a bassist and/or guitarist who can contribute without the need to stand out, but still loves it. Want to be on a team that gets it, and sounds great. Ambiance, energy, empathy and intelligence. The world needs more of those things and a great band to deliver it.

I'm a pedal guy and love to create sounds that are unique and consistent. I like to play through my Ampeg Reverbrocket, it has a unique tone, but will also play through a B-52 AT-100 1/2 stack. I can also combine them for a unique sound. I generally play an American-made Fender Strat and have some older Fenders that sound good. I have a bunch of guitars that can create the ambiance needed to support the song being played. I love to put backing tracks over the PA. I've dialed it in so that the drummer can play to whatever they want to with headphones (no click tracks but their own pre-recorded parts) which keeps everything in perfect time. It's an easy system, and the drummers I've done it with all were hesitant at first but ended up loving it. Mostly, I want to be in a band where the drummer LOVES drumming, that makes a huge difference!
In Bed (Again)
In Bed (Again) Year: 1987 Album: Navaglo 1
Wrote this as a kid, recorded it in 98, still like it, fun to play live.
Rainy Day Idea
Rainy Day Idea Year: 2009 Genre: Alternative
I've been looking for a good melody for this! Any ideas?
Everything Year: 2002 Album: Navaglo 3 Genre: Alternative
Influenced from some readings I did
Taxi Cab Year: 2019 Genre: Alternative
Every now and then I write songs for other people and/or TV commercials/movies. This is one of those songs...they wanted a certain sound (you'll be able to identify who they referenced) and I wrote it to those specs. Still need to redo the vocals but you can get the vibe I was after
All It's Worth
All It's Worth Genre: Alternative
Wrote this one a while back, made a few changes recently. Fun song to play live.
Double Helix Year: 2002 Album: Navaglo 3 Genre: Alternative
Cohocton, NY Year: 2015 Genre: Alternative
A song about a dream about a bad change of vibe in the world. Has a cool groove in the middle of the song. Should probably edit out the first 20 seconds since it's more of an intro and most people don't listen to the rest
The Real Downfall of America Post 911
The Real Downfall of America Post 911 Year: 2010 Genre: Electronic
My very first attempt at an all "electronic" mix. I really like this song. "Hear the Lamentation of the Women!!!"
Mud Trumpet Year: 2016 Genre: Electronic
Not a fan of the Trumpster. I don't like writing stuff that flat out states it though, so this one makes you put the pieces of the song together with samples
