Currently performing in an acoustic duo called Exit 0. See exit0band for more info.

Expertise: Lead/backup vocals, Rhythm/lead guitar [can also play harmonica and some drums]

~Not currently seeking a band, but always willing to listen.~

In general (seeking):
An established mixed rock, classic rock, and alternative/modern rock band that needs an additional vocalist/guitarist and perhaps add some harmonica on a couple songs. It would be nice to find a group with some musical background that really enjoy making the music their own (...and better) and fully utilize dynamics to allow the focus of each song to be on the key elements (vocals, guitar solo, bass riff, etc.). Having a volume war, overplaying, and oversinging is not desired.

On vocals - I would like to sing lead some, sing some spot-on backup vocals, and perhaps even put the guitar down on occasion and just sing and get a crowd into the music.

On guitar - I'm looking to play with another guitarist/singer to share in a rhythm/lead role. Willing to put the guitar down if the occasion and song warrants it and willing to play the big solo when called for.
