Band to Join.


New to Austin, looking to connect with other musicians. I've played acoustic guitar (rhythm) for over 10 years and have played solo and in bands (jazz, lounge, blues, rock, folk, and americana). Ideally I want to provide lead or backing vocals for a band - any genre as long as it's a good fit, though I lean more towards what I am familiar with (i.e. blues, folk, alt rock, old country).

Give my videos a listen and let me know if I could add something special to your project.
