ABOUT

Currently I am looking for a Prog Rock, Post Rock band preferably.

I'm very dedicated. Even though a record deal is a long shot, I'd still like to take a shot. I'm looking for serious musicians only. I'll practice as much as needed. However, my schedule varies during the week because I have no set hours. Could easily be stuck with overtime. In the past bands I've been in, we would e-mail each other songs and finish them online before ever practicing them in person. I like to be prepared than put on the spot (not that I can't play on the spot). When time is limited this works the best.

I have alot of stage prescence and experience playing live gigs. I've played for crowds over 1000 people. I've been in bands for the past 11+ years, been playing the bass since 2001, but originally played jazz guitar for 4 years before that and 2 years during it (so jazz guitar for 6 years..but can't play well anymore). I've only been playing drums for 2 years but not enough time get real good at em.

So if you're serious, skilled, and looking to make it...you know where to turn. MoToTaDeR7aol

I did the backup screams in the audio clip and I did the backup clean vocals for the music video.

As far as touring is concerned. With my job, I get 14 vacation days every year. I'm looking to play more local for now. In about a year or 2 I will be in a comfortable enough position to go fully on tour. I just need to stay with this company long enough to get all the certifications I would need to get easily rehired somewhere else if I had to quit my job for the band.

Please check out all of my material. Each song is in a different style. I wouldn't want you to be looking for a Folk bassist and then you only click my Metalcore song and decide I'm not the right fit.
