I WRITE/ARRANGE & PERFORM/RECORD--Original Voice Overs, Original Music Lyrics and arrangement of other songwriters works--at studio sessions for corporate jingles/tags/theme songs, and studio sessions for all musicians and songwriters creating their own unique band sound...

My favorite genres to compose tracks/write & arrange lyrics/vocals for are House/Triphop/Dance/Electonica, and RocknRoll.
My favorite sounds for live-performance are Tech House/Soulful House/UKG/Future Garage/Dance Music, Oleskool Funk, Classic Motown,and Classic Rock. But still, I enjoy ALL types of music--and I mean ALL!
Rock, blues, pop, trip-hop, house, neo-soul, funk, countryPOP, and classic rock..

******JUST SO YOU KNOW:
Ive stopped answering the want-ads to work just as a 'hired gun', and am currently seeking a creation that would find me excited about performing cover tunes--plus writing original material--and actually looking forward to the rehearsal process and enjoying the company of the musicians, over just trying to sing whatever-wherever to make a buck.
