ABOUT

I'm down for whatever. Well, almost whatever.

I've played everything from college indie to country rock to sludge metal with stops in between. Non-musical personal info: I'm a dad, a hubby, and a wannabe ninja, in no particular order.

Contact info: Planethipes on the "Gram" of "Insta" or Brian Williams (my real name) on that FB thing Zuckerberg created. Feel free to message.

Influences

Man, a little of everything and a lot of what's around me. But bass-wise, a bunch of 80s - 90s dudes. I'm primarily a finger-style guy but like to mix it up with some slapping and pick playing, too.

Instrument experience:

Bass Guitar:
Advanced
Vocalist:
Intermediate

EQUIPMENT

Hartke 2500 head and cab for the volume; a smaller GK MB-108 for the quieter moments; and two Yamaha BBs, a 3000s and a 734a, one strung with DR Lo-Riders, the other with Dunlops. Plan to add a decent fuzz pedal and maybe a envelope filter in the near future to add a little color when needed.
