ABOUT

NOT 420 friendly! It's NOT cool if you do it around me.

I've always primarily been a frontman, but am open to other roles within a committed group. I play guitar and sing simultaneously without difficulty and solos / leads aren’t a problem. I don't smoke / drink. I'm always ready.

Looking for people that want to play just because they love to get together and play. You need your own motivation... that's very important. I'm motivated to do the best I possibly can (even just for rehearsal) and that's what I would hope for from anyone that may take interest in teaming up with me. If you need a show lined up to be motivated enough to play then we're probably not going to be compatible. I'm always ready.

Here's what I know I'm not interested in:
1. Recording an album
2. Touring the country / world
3. Jamming with no sense of direction or purpose

Here's what I am interested in:
1. Commitment
2. Regular, frequent practices
3. Playing with people that have passion to play

Let me know what you are doing / want to do and we'll go from there.

Oh, and one more thing... I'm always ready!

Influences

This is subjective. For me it's the best of local and worldclass artists.

If the song is fresh and will get an audience really into our show... I want it. I'm open to variety. The most important thing to me is that we keep a growing list of stuff that will pleasantly surprise people. I want the audience off their butts and partying to us.
