ABOUT

Not your typical Bass Player....I'm not the guy you want if you're looking for a strictly root notes player. I love being creative with my sound and my playing. Very heavily influenced by the progressive rock movement of the early to mid 90's...I also love the early stuff as well. Looking for a band with a big following who loves to play out as much as possible. Love original music but not afraid of covers either. On the commitment level...once I've settled in I'll be the most loyal member of the band. The band I was in just split, so I need to feel around for a while.
