Band to Join.

ABOUT

Lifelong bass enthusiast. I like a wide range of music and styles, and I have played publicly a lot in the past. I do mostly home recording these days, and have been spending more time playing acoustic music. I'd like to start playing out again when the right opportunity presents itself. I'm open to starting a new project or joining an existing one.
