ABOUT

I'm a recent transplant to Gillette and Campbell County. I'm looking to get involved in a band, with its members influenced by some of my favorite artists.

I'm a songwriter and a performer, and I'm interested in starting an alt-country act that is open to experimentation, similar to the work of Ryan Adams & The Cardinals. I consider myself a singer, but I'm not looking to be a figurehead with a backup band — everyone should contribute and get the credit they deserve for the music they make.

I'm interested in finding musicians who are serious about making music, but not afraid to experiment and take things as they come.
