SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

A deep love and appreciation for all types of American music, especially rock, blues, funk, country, bluegrass, and rockabilly.

I live in Omaha and work in Lincoln, so a project based in either town (or somewhere between) could likely work. Positive attitude, enthusiastic, experienced, decent quality gear, quick learner, hard worker, dependable transportation, no ego or chemical issues, etc.

I look forward to hearing from you!
