ABOUT

Dual Bassist/Guitarist looking for a garage band initially, maybe gigging eventually.

Experience songwriting in blues, folk, hard rock, metal and psychedelic genres.
Studio experience: Bassist, Rhythm + Lead Guitar, vocals.

Singing range is baritone stuff like The Doors, MeatLoaf, STP, The Cars, Seeger, etc.

**Currently recovering from a severe shoulder dislocation on my fretting arm/hand, so am focusing on playing bass, resonator, slide and blues until fully healed. 3 or 4 hours of speed metal probably not best fit atm lol
