SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Vocalist - Tenor, Vocalist - Soprano, Vocalist - Alto.
I started playing guitar about 10 years ago, back when I was beginning high school and used to hang out with a bunch of other musicians. I've played a gig or two, and have had a fair share of jam sessions, but the real secret to my playing ability comes from the heart. I play with a passion; that's when I'm at my best. I guess you could say I have a little bit of experience in everything: gigging, jamming, writing/recording, covers, you name it! Now that I'm out of college and am set with a daytime career, I'm looking for the right someone to help rekindle that inner-spark of mine that used to give my music life... Simply put, I want to write and record again, and I would like for someone to do that with me. =)

JIMMY PAGE! I'm a HUGE Led Zeppelin fan! Other than those guys, though, I guess you could just refer to the rest of my influences as the great "Guitar Gods" from the 60's and 70's.
"Island Smash" Year: 2009 Album: "Searing Obsession" Genre: Other
Recorded in 2009, "Island Smash" is an upbeat tune with a dark twist. A lighthearted mandolin strums on like a ukulele as a full band builds to join in on the warm-weather festivities. A liquid-like lead guitar lays down a whitewater-rapid pace that is suddenly stopped cold by the appearance of a thundercloud on the horizon. A brief downpour envelops the land, but the fun is not lost, as the sun soon reappears to save the day once again. Album: "Searing Obsession" Song Writer: Shane Z. Lead Guitar: Shane Z. Bass Guitar: Shane Z. Rhythm/Slide Guitars: Shane Z. Bongo Drums: Shane Z. Drum Set: Kevin S.
"Light From The Sun"
"Light From The Sun" Year: 2009
Originally Recorded between late 2008 and early 2009, "Light From The Sun" was later revisited, with the ending being re-recorded and mixed further by Shane. An upbeat and cheery tune, this track features a medley of both acoustic and electric instruments, blended together in a captivating wall of sound that climaxes with a delightful and catchy chorus. Filled with acoustic lead licks and lines, the melody suddenly deviates in the outro to provide listeners with a rare opportunity of hearing a nylon-acoustic plunk out some fiery ending notes.
