Experienced pro-level bass player is looking for a fun band to mix up a combination of rock, pop, singer/songwriter, alternative, old school country, physchedelic, R&B, and or classic rock to record, play out and possibly tour with the right group of like minded musicians. I've toured and recorded with blues bands for the past 20 yrs. and played with rock, punk and alternative bands before that. Now looking to change things up a bit...
I also build and repair vintage style tube guitar amps. Check out my website sweetamplification dot com for more info please.
Lately, I've been listening to some new and familiar singer song writers and moody/ambient stuff from Lera Lynn, John Prine, Mary Gauthier, Louden Wainwright III, Brian Eno, Robert Wyatt, Rye Cooder and Richard Thompson. Don't know if these artists are all in the same category but they all resonate with me.

This was the last band that I recorded and toured with. I played my '62 re-issue P-bass mic'ed through an Ampeg Reverborocket II guitar amp.
No Use Year: 1989 Album: Smiling Ape Genre: Alternative
First song that I wrote and sang. Of course, I'm playing bass as well.
