ABOUT

Guitarist looking to form serious, writing / recording / touring band with multi-national success. I am a lead guitarist but would like a dynmic similar to Alter Bridge with a singer/guitarist that can play leads as well. Though covers are fine to kick things off and learn each others styles, I dont want to gig as a cover band. I want to write, record, premote, perform and tour with our own music. Ive been a musician for 25+ years and its time to live the dream by making it happen. See below for further influence and experiences.....

Influences

Began my musical endevours at the age of 6, learning the saxaphone in grade school. At age 10, I started taking Bass guitar lessons and played in middleschool Jazz band at age 12, I switched to six string and played jazz in highscool jazz band as well as back ground music for various theater productions. Took 6 years of professional guitar lessons as well as music theory, jazz history and continued to play saxaphone in the concert band until graduation from highschool. Now I currently just play guitar and want to pursue a serious project with focus on originals, recording, premoting and touring. My strongest influence as far as all-around musician is Mark Tremonti of Creed/Alterbridge. Ideally, i want a band that works as much as AB with multi-national success.

EQUIPMENT

Line 6 Amplification and Effects, Paul Reed Smith Custom 24 and Gibson Les Paul guitars. Currently I have a Dean Accoustic but normally I play a Taylor 714ce.
