Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar.


I am a bass player looking to join an established group / band of professional musicians on either a full time or part time hire status. I would prefer hard rock, metal, djent, or anything in that realm but open to all styles of music. The location can be anywhere in the U.S. since I have the ability to remotely write with the rest of the project via Ableton. The goal is to find a group who also has this capability and is open to remotely writing until rehearsal is needed for upcoming tours. I do have a full time job, but my schedule allows me to take off for extended periods of time as needed. I have an 8x12 trailer ready for tour and also reliable transportation so traveling will not be an issue. If need be I can also fly to the location to rehearse and conduct other business as needed. I don't mind being a hired gun and learning parts for tours if the need arises. Please if you do not have a back catalog, have little experience in the industry, or simply cannot treat a band as a business and only want to party....please do not contact me because I am not the right fit.

Over the last 20 years I have been apart of several projects. One project, Punch Cabbie, was around for about 10 years. During that time I helped with radio campaigns, established and maintained the LLC, booking, financial maintenance, and finally pre production for the records. This helped me start a DIY Home Studio in my basement named Clinton Ave Studios LLC, which I am currently recording out of.


My goal overall is to find a band / project that has ambition, a strong work ethic, drive, knowledge, and last but not least a great sound. I am not looking for egos, drama, and drunks. The overall goal is to get music out there and all work together as a cohesive unit to do so. This is a tough business and if you're looking for someone who is willing to work....you found him right here! Please contact me at 708-426-3999 and we can talk.

Live Equipment

I currently have an endorsement with Spector Basses which is the bass I strictly use for live and recoding purposes. I have a 8 x 10 Langley Cabinet and a Kemper Rackmount Edition. I also have a few guitars available which are setup for Drop C and Drop A. I do have a Digitech Drop Pedal which is used for live purposes so playing in different tunings will not be a problem.

Recording Equipment

I mainly use the UA Quad Core Twin Interface for all my recording need and run DI and either use plugins or re amp from there if need be. All the DIs are run into a Warm Audio WA-12 and it sounds great and gives the DI a great tone. I built a DIY vocal booth and have a Shure SM7B available for vocals if needed. I use Ableton 10 Suite as my DAW and the following plugins: GGD Drums, Slate Drums, Trilian Midi Bass, Fab Filter, Omnisphere, Rex Brown Bass Forge,STL Tones, Will Putney STL, and many more.
