Jeff Shoji. Vocals, Bass, Synth, and Composition.
************** NOTE: Due to the pandemic, I am mostly available for online collaborations/performance. ALSO: I am moving to Asheville, NC in the Spring of 2022 (currently, i live in Richmond, CA). ************************
I am interested in a long term collab with another singer/songwriter/producer in the Bay or western NC.
I am about putting on an amazing show and engaging the audience like each show matters. I am interested in building musical community through working on more projects of all types and genres. Currently, I am mostly looking to sing/play bass/and or synth with creative, collaborative people who are generally awesome, vulnerable, artists who love to co-create. Also, open to jamming and just meeting other musicians.
Though I love hard rock and metal, I am not really interested in playing those genres right now (or at least not a band that ONLY plays that kind of music).
Formerly, I played bass and co-wrote in the hip hop rock band Mad Fiction and the progressive rock band Machine Zero.
