ABOUT

I’m a guitar player and vocalist who is also into synth stuff from the 70s and 80s. I’m seeking a strong keyboard player for my 80s band. Bonus if you can also cover some guitar and harmony vocals. For covers, I like to get close to the original... hit the trademark riffs. Sometimes I like to add harmonies that weren’t originally there, and take liberties on solos. On rare occasions, I like to completely reimagine a song and perform it as a “new original cover”. As for originals, it’s a blank canvas where anything is possible. I love to experiment!
