ABOUT

Gigging guitarist looking for creative musicians. Veteran of several bands. Currently am gigging with a band 1-2 times month in clubs in Chattanooga/Cleveland area. I'm high energy and like to get the crowd going. Willing to gig in a 200 mile radius- willing to go further if it looks right. Looking for folks who want to focus on good songwriting and are willing to put in some time to make it happen, grow as musicians.. I've got 70's level lead chops, but can break out of "the box".
More of a background singer than a lead vocalist, but I take harmony singing parts seriously and don't mind spending some time to get them right. Have played percussion and bass in other bands. Blues/RocknRoll/Soul/Funk is my core that I build from, and try to write stuff that gets people dancing and occasionally thinking. Don't be boring.
