I'd looking to work with full time musicians who want to build a solid and professional music vehicle. I like playing covers but my goal is to develop an original sound.
Some examples of the styles of music I'm interested in are: "Just to See Her" by Smokey R., Waiting for Your Love by Toto, "I Wonder Who She's Seeing" by the Tempts, "After the Love Has Gone and That's The Way of The World" by EWF, "What's Going On" by M. Gaye, "What Is Hip" by Tower of Power and anything by Stevie Wonder.
I have a solid background in Music Composition and Arranging and Electronics. I'm a graduate of a Berklee College of Music program called Master Certification in Composition, Arranging and Orchestration for Film, TV and Video Games. I'm skilled on Drums, Bass, Keys and Rhythm Guitar.
I've been an Audio Engineer in Radio, Television, Film and FOH mixing for over 30 years. I've produced two CD albums for other artists, music for network TV and commercial Radio jingles.
Some of the artists that I've worked with include; James Brown, Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, Herbie Hancock, Wynton Marsalis, Walter Hawkins Family and Ronnie Leigh's Alliance.
