ABOUT

Hey everyone,

My name is Carl, I'm new to Madison, just came from the SF Bay Area and am looking to make some friends and music.

I primarily play guitar, keys and sing. I have played and studied music for ~16 years in a variety of genres and have been an active performer for ~14yrs. I have a decent understanding of music/music theory, I can read sheet music however i can't sight read anything but chords anymore.

I have plenty recording experience and know a few tricks but it's definitely not my area of expertise.
