ABOUT

I'm a vocalist first and a guitarist 2nd. I would like to form a band with open minded individuals, specifically drummers and bassists; as well as keys. Though, I am open to any other musicians who feel they can add to the sound.

I personally have been playing guitar since I was 18 and I have dabbled in keys most of my life. Though I am better at guitar than keys. I have been singing and screaming since I could talk. I'm no professional, but I like to think I have a unique voice. There is always room for improvement after all.

As for other musical background; I have been in chior and formed smaller projects with fellow musicians back in school.
The biggest project and the longest was when I was lead vox and guitarist of The Lotus Kids. We had a small plethora of songs and a following for a time.

Current Situation: My demo/ep is called "Belongs in the Trash"
I prefer to work on these songs and try to evolve around the sound. but I am open to however the group forms
