ABOUT

Hi there, Looking for a drummer or hand drummer to play shows with. I have my own compositions that are in the sort of in the style of August rush (although he was portrayed as a prodige in that movie, and I am not a prodige , haha ). If would be great to have a drummer join me on this. If you have a song that you want me to learn, I would be happy to learn it. I write music all the time. I've been writing for 10 years. I compose music on my acoustic guitar (mostly lap-tapping) and on my computer that is experimental and is influenced in part by the artists I've listed below. I went to the California Institute of the Arts for music. I've travelled for the past 2-3 years, 1 year as a street performer. I want to increase my ability to play with others. One of my biggest challenges is being open to the ideas of other people. I am really trying to overcome this, though. I'm interested in playing with anyone, regardless of their ability. I live in st. charles IL.
