Band to Join, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar.

ABOUT

I have been singing and performing just about as long as I can remember. I was playing bars when I was 15 and sneaking in through the back door to get to the stage. I've done it all, play live, studio work both original and cover. I have a very strong stage presence and know how to work an audience. I've jammed with and played in front of bigger names, etc. I have a very, very strong voice, super range and mastery of many different vocal styles / genres. I can swing from Brian Johnson to Freddy Mercury back to back and that's always been my strongest traits I think ... diversity. I still kick ass and deliver a top flight, energetic performance every time. I'm very easy to get along with, fun to be around but firm in my convictions when I'm in a band. I'm not the stereotypical tyrant or prima donna lead singer. I like to get my hands dirty and participate from load up/in, set up to tear down, marketing, etc. My expectation levels are high for the musicianship of my band mates. I tend to gravitate towards 3 piece bands where musicians often wear many different hats and where you can achieve that incredible tightness but I'd really like to play in a 2 guitar band this time around. I love heavy, riff driven guitar with great melodic and powerful vocals. So if you can't run with the big dogs get your ass off the porch. I can put my money where my mouth is when it comes to singing and performing live ... as long as you can do the same we'll get along great.
