ABOUT

I have been in performing and recording bands since I was 16. I have written songs, co-written, sang lead vocals, back-up vocals. Although my best instruments are bass guitar, rythm guitar and drums, I have also played some lead guitar and keyboards.

Although I am open to other possibilities, like forming another rock-instruments group, inspired recently by "The Bobs" I am currently looking to form an acappella group.

00s: Eagles of Death Metal, Gnarls Barkley, Beck, Tim Finn, Crowded House, etc.

90s: Stereolab, They Might Be Giants, Annie Lennox, k.d. lang, etc.

80s: Split Enz, DEVO, Talking Heads, Blondie, Pretenders, Elvis Costello, Zoogz Rift, etc.
