ABOUT

Hi there. I'm an experienced drummer, and I'm looking to expand my current musical situation. I'm in search of musicians to collaborate with and/or a band to join in the Philadelphia area. I also have an amateur multi-track studio in West Philly that I'd like to use to create some interesting music with some like-minded people. Stylistically speaking I'm primarily interested in finding musicians who enjoy folk/rock/blues/old country/jazz/reggae/funk/world/space inspired songs with a healthy amount of room for each musician to "stretch their legs". A mixture of any of those genres or a focus on only a few or just one are all options.

About me: I'm 31, and I'm not particular about age as long as your heart is in it. I'm also not very particular about genre. Take a look at my influences. Of the things listed I think they're fairly broad. If you have any interest in anything listed we're off to a good start. I also have a recording/rehearsal studio I rent in west Philadelphia, where all the equipment listed below (and some I forgot I'm sure) is in use.

After reading this you feel you have something to contribute, I'd love to hear from you! Don't hesitate to contact me.
