ABOUT

I LOVE playing bass. I also sing and finger pick guitar a bit.

I studied bass at Berklee and New England Conservatory. Jazz and Classical. I can read lead sheets... figured bass requires a little time... day or so. I love to play challenging pieces.
I am not planning to be the next "big thing". I play because it's fun and it brings joy to people.

I have awesome gear...a LOT of gear !! 4 string, 5 string, fretted/fretless, acoustic... Fender, MTD, G&L Rick Turner basses ... some nice guitars too.

One of the most important things to me is how we get a long.
I am kind, compassionate and mindful. Don't take drugs or drink alcohol.... OK if you do as long as it’s not a problem.
I don't take myself too seriously.

I love funky, jazzy, edgy, bluesy, soulful rock ... folk and classical as well. I can read a bit.

Ideally the music we create is original sounding and a mix of what we all bring to it. I don't have an agenda so much, only that I want to play, be expressive, have fun... and bring something into being that leaves the world a better place

The songs I posted are just a smattering of ideas and by no means represent the limit of my flexibility.
