ABOUT

I just finished Album 22, (my first-ever attempt at Country / Western) and for the first time since Bandmix has existed, I have no (zero) musical Projects underway. So, I’m not “seeking” anything right now, except perhaps some people to jam with just for fun.

Influences

All over the place, but has been eclectic throughout my life. Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of “Indie Folk”, but am versed in Classic Rock, classic country (pre 1998, before “crossover”), and generally “any good song” that incorporates melody, harmony, and not too much repetition.

A good Song is a Good Song, and should not be defined by Genre, anyway, right?

UPDATE 2/21/21: I’m in the process of Mixing my latest effort / album, Country / Western, 16 Original tunes. But so far this year, I’ve been listening a lot to:
• Emmylou Harris & Mark Knopler – “All the Roadrunning”
• Low Anthem – “Oh My God Charlie Darwin”
• Robert Plant & Allison Krauss – Raising Sand
• Jayhawks – “Smile”
… and thinking I’d like to try something in that direction. Tight vocals/harmonies. Always with a twist. I’m developing a New Genre: “Shoegraze” – picture Willie Nelson and Mary Chapin Carpenter with Pink Floyd as a backing band. :)

EQUIPMENT

I have enough equipment at home to sink an aircraft carrier… including a fully-equipped Recording Studio the size of a Volkswagen’s interior. And, what I can't buy, I design and build. What good is gear if you ain't recording? But I have no space in my house to host jams – so let’s be practical:

I have (and experience listed):
• Mics / Cables – VERY proficient at both lead and backup vocals
• Basses – I’m a very-decent “foundational” bassist, if a bit rusty
• Guitars acoustic and electric – VERY proficient at rhythm, although I am not a lead player
• Keyboards (heavy and I prefer not to road-them, so they’re out of scope) – just a beginner - very, very far from Mike Garson.
• Mandolin, Mandocello, Mandola – Beginner stage, but would love to jam with anyone learning guitar / bass / drums, just to get better!

I'm playing the Hand that God dealt me: I wanted to be a pilot. But what if my Life ends, and I've left nothing behind?!?
