SEEKING

Acoustic Guitar, Background Singer, Vocalist.

ABOUT

I started playing bass around 22 years ago in California, and always synced up well with drummers. I played with a couple of bands and the first gigging band played the L.A. 90's ska/reggae scene (Whisky a Go-Go) Long Beach alot. Really though, I'm a singer, so I started playing rhythm guitar enough to sing with, and started an Irish/Punk bank called The Gobsh*tes, and we played for about 10-12 years. Various near-death experiences and Fox TV spots, later.... I'm in New Hampshire and I really want to find a group to play with. I'm a good singer, and I've been told I'm a good front-man. mostly, I have a dirty voice with some character. I can sing clean harmonies, but I like the Shane MacGowan/Chris Robinson sound. There needs to be some conviction there, and sometimes you just have to scream it out.
