ABOUT

40 yo multi-instrumentalist. Bass and drums are my primary instruments, but I play a little bit of everything and sing too (baritone tenor). I'm also a recording engineer with 25 year of experience recording/mixing/session work. I'm NJ/NYC based, I have a mix/overdub studio in my basement that I can track anything from drums to loud guitars, vocals, etc.
