ABOUT

I'm a 23 year-old male keys player and songwriter. Though I haven't been playing music for more than 4 years, I discovered a knack for the keys in college and have obsessively played nonstop since then. My hands are at home on the keys. I love jamming, soloing, improv, and have a wide range of influences and genres that I turn to. I have absolutely no ego musically and am comfortable in any role in a band as long as it contributes to the best product possible.

I'm okay at singing, but before music I wrote poetry and lyrics for years, and continue to do so today. I have a knack for rhymes, song structure, and conceptualizing a song lyrically. I don't plan to be the lead singer for a band, but I can do backup vocals and write songs for others to sing.
