I am a big Ol' laid back dude, you know, like a typical bass player. I like grooving, but I also dig playing a little loose. I usually try to get a nice clean sound, but I don't believe in trying to make anything sound perfect. I go for feeling over technique, and I don't try to force too many notes into a song. Many times a simple melody is the way to go. I don't really like playing fast, but I can go heavy or darkish, and I prefer to play with my fingers, not a pick, though I can play with both . I love ALL types of music, if it sounds good, I am there. What else can I say? Let's just get together and jam, and see if things work out. Open to gigging, local touring, or just jammin.

- Background Singer:
Yamaha TRBX (has a nice sustain) , Fender Rumble 25. It is not a big amp but you can definitely hear it over the drums, and playing a small show would be fine with it.
Ascension Track number: 2 Year: 2015 Album: Not on one Genre: Alternative
Recorded off phone, m4a file, use headphones. Me and my bro Mikey Brown, self-titled track. Mikey is playing a 12 string acoustic, and me on my Yamaha electric bass.
Year One Year: 2014 Album: Not on one Genre: Acoustic
This is one where I was playing acoustic with my bro Mikey Brown, as the band Ascension. It is kinda mellow, but one of my first original songs, so I dig it. It was recorded on a OLD phone though, and then I converted the file to Mp3, and sent it to the folks at LANDR, who's nifty algorithm mastered it.
Sands Track number: 3 Year: 2015 Album: Not on one Genre: Alternative
Again, recording from a phone, converted to Mp3 by the fine folks at LANDR, this track mastered by LANDR. Mikey Brown playing his 12 string, and me on a acoustic bass, Takamine I think.
