ABOUT

Four genres is not enough!
Would like to collaborate on songwriting, while creating a space for some improvisation. Like to take things and give them an overdriven edge, psychedelic twist, but enjoy understated irony, not being heavy-handed, as well. Most importantly, looking to get out and play with other musicians, be tight, make an audience feel something. I feel particularly drawn to supporting an interweaving with a vocalist, but any and all vocal or instrumental collaborations are welcomed.
