Band to Join, Vocalist, Vocalist - Tenor, Rhythm Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar.

ABOUT

I have been a semi-professional musician since my start in club bands as a Lead Singer/Bassist in the 80's. I am a former member of recording and performing bands Saffire, Social Insects, NuBoys, ÖR, GenkideSka, Live Star Nation, and The Dustman Project. I started doing solo acoustic (Guitar and Vocals) music in 1996, starting by playing small venues throughout Southern California. I have had recording contracts with Ecclectica Records (Los Angeles, CA), Soul Joy Records (Austin, TX), and did studio work with Digitraxx Studio (San Diego, CA). I am a long term resident of Hawai'i and have an investment here as my home. I am not looking for full-time, several gigs a week, or traveling gigs (I have a professional career that I love and is my main priority).
