ABOUT

Been playing bass for quite some time. Have very eclectic taste and am looking to jam out and work on some original material. I have a slew of original songs that I have been working on but they still need some polishing and rounding out with a few other ample musicians. I tend to play in the vein of something akin to an experimental, thick funk groove, jam. That being said, I'm pretty malleable and can pretty much groove to anything that strikes my fancy. Hit me up at (304)989-0208 if interested, or shoot me an email jharrel1 at (hot then a mail) dot com. I'm always looking to play with new people and expand upon my sound.
