ABOUT

29 year old multi instrumentalist looking to form a rock band with an emphasis on original work. My main instruments are guitar and keys, but take a look at the list of instruments on my profile, it's all accurate. I'm comfortable and competent on both lead and backing vocals.

I'm a songwriter, and I like to use solid music theory in my writing, in order to create intricate and pleasing music, while simultaneously melting faces. I have no problem with covers, in fact I think they're fun and necessary for any new group, and I'm happy to play them.

I'm currently part of a local, gigging country band, and gear-wise am show-ready with acoustic and electric guitar, banjo, dobro, mandolin, and uke. If you're willing to give me a little time to put together a show outfit for any of my other available instruments, I'll rock that, too.

I'd rather form a new project rather than join an existing one, because I find it's easier to work with people that way. But I would consider the right established group, if we're a good fit for each other.

I've got transportation and reasonable equipment, so we're all set there.

For individuals of, shall we say, more "seasoning" than I who may be interested in my profile but thinking "this guy doesn't want to play with old farts like us", yes. Yes I do. I really don't care.
