I am primarily a performing and studio lead guitarist (6, 7, 8 string electric/acoustic). My main style is is death metal in the broadest sense, but I come from a jazz/blues background, so plenty of that bleeds through in my writing. I have had the privilege of playing with and opening for some big acts including Jon Anderson, Mike Keneally, and Foghat, among others. On a related note, I have spent the last 15 years instructing guitar, bass, and vocals on my own and through a number of programs and schools.

Brief background aside, I'm looking for like-minded and skilled musicians to put together a truly heavy force to be reckoned with in the PNW: Those who have experience in working bands and a commitment to rehearsal/practice.

I have many many arrangements written and plenty more ideas to hash out with a group. Some have been recorded at my home studio, but most have not yet. I am set up with DI's, decent mics and pres, and some room treatment.

Because I am new enough to the area, it's all just me right now on lead and vocals. That being said, what this band needs is a wicked rhythm guitarist, an exceptional 5 or 6-string bassist, and a powerful drummer. Depending on arrangements, a dedicated vocalist may be required as well, so don't hesitate to contact me if you're the type to mix frys, gutterals, false chords and natural vocals.
