ABOUT

Singer/songwriter, looking to join or start a band. Previous band experience includes lead vocals, backing harmony vocals, keyboard, electric rhythm guitar and acoustic rhythm guitar in various cover bands (mostly rock/blues). The above songs are my originals. "Everyday" was written in a band workshop, the music was a collaborative effort, while I wrote the lyrics. "I'm Alright" is all mine, the recording was from a live show with my previous band.
