ABOUT

I am the former front man of a touring punk band called Goodnight Wednesday. I had to quit touring shortly after my wife and I had our 2nd child, but I severely miss playing shows and want to get back out there, at least in some capacity.

Looking for like minded individuals interested in starting a new punk rock/pop-punk act in the Akron, OH area. We would write some songs, record a short EP, create some basic merchandise, develop an interesting, dynamic live show, then start playing local spots around the Akron/Canton/Cleveland area. I am a song writer/guitarist so I'm looking for at least a bassist and drummer, preferably with some back up vocal capabilities. However, I am also open to other instrumentalists that may be interested.

I am 29 years old and played in a touring rock band for over 8 years. I have written multiple albums, played hundreds of shows, toured the US, and had the songs I wrote played on radio stations all across the country. I also have the tools and capabilities to record an album, shoot some music videos, and design merch. I have the experience, talent, and know-how to build a musical brand form the ground up. I know how to be in a band.

Lastly, I am a Christian, and my songwriting is influenced heavily by my faith, as it shapes the outlook of my life. You'd have to be alright with this. Just think about Thrice, and how Dustin Kensrues faith in God influences their music, and you should get the vibe. I love God, I love people, I love rock and roll. I also love chinese food, kung fu, TMNT, The Office, Dr Pepper, stand up comedy, and my family.
