ABOUT

I am a paying subscriber of Bandmix now so I can reach out to people. I thought I would give a little bit more of what I am looking for. Music has actively been a part of my life since I learned my first chord. Ever since then I have been unable to live life unaffected by the pull of it's hypnotic qualities. I haven't had great success but that's never been my goal. I want to play and create for the sake of communicating life, how I feel and see it, not for any type of acknowledgement or celebration. However, the experience of playing music with all its priceless benefits does cost time and money and some compensation is always desired and appreciated.
My real goal is to combine my talents with the talnets of others in hopes the combination creates something of value to us first and others second. Creating music with something more thoughtful then a lot of the fluff that is overplayed on radios is also my aim. Being unique and true to an original thought and sound is very much a must.
I started out playing bass in punk bands, I gravitate now to acoustic guitar folk/emo/rock. I play mostly upbeat and melodic lines and look for unusual or unordinary sounds avoiding using the same old progressions. I use some alternative tunings for that reason.
I also play keyboards/piano and am probably more prolific on keys then any other instrument when it comes to writing. I am a lyricist and I sing. I am not a big fan of my voice but I enjoy singing like most everyone.
Long story short I am pretty open minded but there are some genres I just won't mesh well with. I don't have much desire at all to play covers.

I have written a ton of songs, I have recorded a lot. I am not gifted in the area of mixing but I have a account where I post some songs I feel like I want to share.

Thanks--please reach out if you can feel what I'm saying.
