ABOUT

My current goal is to join up as a bassist (bg vox, if needed) with a working act of guys/gals and make some awesome music together. Local, touring, some combination of both.. It's all gravy! I have no ambition of gunning for your lead guitarist's spot.. I am a bassist and lover of the craft through and through. I do play many additional instruments as well, but I only say this in my capacity as a seasoned educator to help out in rehearsals. I'm well versed in most styles of music and happy to play any of them. For me it's not about the type of music, but about making music period. I'm pretty much always in a positive mood, empathetic, energetic, and caring. I don't get offended easily and am happy to apply criticism in order to become a better fit for your group. I am entirely drug/alcohol free -- not a party pooper -- I don't mind what you do at all, but for myself I've chosen to leave that stuff behind me. I'm really looking forward to meeting some cool cats on here and making music with y'all!!

The video is of me playing with my current act, Grayson Rogers, before the move to Nashville. Since we've been here the needs of his career have necessitated a shift toward solo shows and songwriter rounds -- totally understandable, but I do need to work -- and so I am looking to either pick up some gigs or join another act entirely. I'm flexible! The important thing to take away from the video is my awesomely awkward dancing skills and how that might entertain both you and your fans haha

Thanks a bunch for checking me out guys!
