Band to Join, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Other Percussion, Keyboard, Piano, Banjo, Mandolin, Fiddle.


I want to make music that is irresistible, unmistakable, and remarkable. I want to cross genre lines and add depth to my indie rock sensibility. I want songwriting to come to the forefront and ego take a back seat. Throughout the last 10 years I have played in punk, ska, surf, indie rock, acoustic, blues, and bluegrass bands and it turns out, I want it all.
