ABOUT

Bassist living in Norwalk, Southern CT, Looking to join a working or near working band, I'm open to sub situations as well.
Also looking to form a quartet; Bass, Drums, Keyboard, and Guitar to play covers, ideally with vocals or backup vocals as well as male and female representation to offer the widest range of material.
In addition, I would like to connect with musicians and singers who are interested in exploring music for yoga and related genres for writing and performance as well as Electronic music collaboration. Looking for musicians and vocalists interested in creating ambient, textural, and improvisational music.
I will travel and am tireless in the support of the right situation. Please contact me if you have interest in any of these.

Influences

Where we come from often doesn't equate to where we're heading musically so influences can distract from a potential collaboration, it's easy to assume that a player will only want to mimic their influences.
Over the decades I've played in many musical genres. Growing up 60'rock and blues is what I learned on, but my influences were many; Zepplin, Floyd, Beatles, Allman Bros, Yes, Peter Gabriel, Tony Levin, King Crimson, Brian Eno, Roxy music, Steve Roach, Rock in general, R&B, Motown, Funk, New Wave, Alternative, etc... lot's of great music out there if it's good I want to hear it, I'll give anything a try.
