SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

July, 2024
Thank you for checking out my page.

I am actively seeking a position in a professional working band with people who play like the music means something to them and are motivated to be successful. I'm not adverse to joining a start-up, if we can get the band up and running asap, and I will travel for the right project.

I learn songs very quickly, and show up to rehearsals on time, prepared, and ready to work. I show up to gigs ready to perform, and I can also sing back up.

I fell in love with electric bass over 35 years ago, and never felt the desire to stray from my chosen instrument. I will give my all in playing energetic rock, funk, R&B, disco, pop, blues, new wave, and jazz... or almost anything else. To me, performing a song is much more than having the chord changes down.

I don't consider myself a "studio musician" because my passion lies in live performance, but I am no stranger to studio work, and have extensive experience in everything from high end professional studios to home recording set ups. I am also fully equipped to contribute remotely recorded bass tracks in any format, with an attention to technical details like sample rates and file naming conventions.
