ABOUT

Hey, I'm here to meet other musicians to play with in Chicago.

I'm not a full time musician but I'd like to find others who want to collaborate... I'm interested in connecting with singers, guitarist, bassists, drummers, keyboards...

I'm pretty open to rock, pop, folk, and more from 50's-00's. If you could broadly call it rock and roll, I'm interested in check it out. I also like outlaw country, alt-country, and Americana.

I play acoustic and electric... As a guitarist I try to be utility player with a group and play whatever is needed. I don't see a huge difference in rhythm and lead but people always ask about that. I'm comfortable doing fills and taking a solo... I can also strum, provide Motown pops, hit power chords, or stand by a microphone and do hand claps. I've played with ensembles that have 3+ guitars so I'm comfortable figuring out what my contribution to a song should be to help with the arrangement.

I'm open to covers and don't mind mixing in some originals. I'm excited to work on creating new music with people once we connect. I'd love to find people who want to put together our own arrangements and covers of specific artists and do tribute shows or under certain themes (i.e. music from the 80's, bands from Chicago, LGBTQ artists and anthems, etc.).

Outside of music I'm a laid back person! I want to connect with other music loving hobbiests and learn from each other. I live in Chicago and have a car.
