Band to Join, Vocalist, Bass Guitar, Keyboard.

ABOUT

I'm a diversified musician with an undergraduate degree in Vocal performance and classical composition. I know about music theory and can transcribe and copy things quickly via notes or by ear. I got out of the classical scene because it was too stuffy and have been playing duo gigs for a few years with a drummer friend of mine who is excellent. Looking to join forces with another person to expand or possibly moonlight with another group as well for a more full-band experience. Would love to work with other strong vocalists.

Influences

I love groove-based music, good vibes, and vocal harmonies. Favorite bands include The Beatles, Queen, Cake, Billy Joel, Boston, James Brown, Bruno Mars, and the list goes on and on. I like a lot of music across a lot of different genres and prefer to bring that diverse palette to my audience so I can perform for any audience.

EQUIPMENT

My current preferred gigging setup (being the only pitched instrument in our duo) is a '94 Gibson Nighthawk through a Marshall Valvestate 2x12 fed with an overdrive and a boss RC300 for looping rhythm tracks, as well as an oddball Marlboro GA-40R with a classic overdrive for my lead tones. Both connected with an ABY switch. This setup will likely shrink to one amp with a full group.
