ABOUT

My Name is TJ. I am an experienced musician and have played well over 1,000 shows with a few big name acts in the Metal and Rock Scene. I have been playing music for 15 years and am well versed in almost all styles of music; Including but not limited to: Rock, Metal, Jazz, Blues and mainstream pop. I am a quick learner and can follow along with almost any musician I encounter. I am new to the state of Florida and I am looking to build new experiences and friends here through music. I am willing to travel and I also have a small studio to record and jam in.

I also have more recently ( within the past 3 - 4 years) been delving into the electronic music scene and producing rap / hip hop beats for artists and also Trap and Dubstep Music for my own personal enjoyment in my spare time.
