ABOUT

Upright bass, guitar, vox.

I'm playing upright on all tracks listed below. These samples are music I did for pay while living in NYC, except for Manson Family Picnic, I love that music. I'm looking for hard swing rock blues country thrash music dJango meets hank lll. Looking to tour primarily.
