ABOUT

I keep solid time. I've carried more than one show through technical difficulties and slip-ups with my unwavering beat.
My goal is to play the percussion accompaniment that will serve the music at hand, whether that fits convention or not. So I always want to try different things on the drums - not flashy, but tasty.
I like warmth and fuzz. I like strings and woodwinds, and odd meters
And I have loads of song ideas, and some nearly finished songs, to which I write lyrics. I put melodies together intuitively (and harmonize simplistically). I welcome ideas on completing and improving them.
Besides these I have a wish list for covers, spanning centuries.

I have a regular job and a family, so group rehearsals would be weekly.
