ABOUT

I've been playing guitar and trombone for half my life now. Guitar is my main instrument, I have experience playing several kinds of music including, punk, metal, acoustic rock, jazz, prog, and blues.
I am a tenor and I can sing harmonies or lead vocals. I have a wide range and have no trouble hitting high notes. I have an 80's rock voice. I can also do a few types of screaming if needed.
I've recently picked up the drums. I can play a lot of basic rock grooves but I like to throw a lot of funk influence in the mix.
I've taken a lot of music theory courses and I can compose and arrange music. I have a pretty good ear for music when it comes to singing and improving or soloing.
