ABOUT

My day job consists of things that aren’t very interesting to me, but they pay the bills. At night, I am a musical enthusiast who wants more.

My musical journey is a bit all over the place, but it has landed me in a place I firmly want to be in. I am a classically trained pianist who’s played in jazz bands, who then learned trumpet and played for marching bands and concert bands professionally, and then decided to learn a little bit of guitar, and now I’m training classically in vocals - and this is where I want to be.

This means I am not your average singer. I can read grand staff and chord sheets, I have some knowledge of theory, I can stay in time as well as count between entrances. I have excellent memory, and am extremely committed to any endeavor I have agreed to take on.

I would like to:
- [realistic] Be part of a band who wants a powerful vocalist with a clean sound. (original or cover band)
- [wishlist] Be part of an operatic metal band, where I share vocals with someone else or alone (totally happy to collaborate)
- Find some easy-going accompanyist who would like to join me on low key open mic nights

I do not want:
- Country / Soul / Funk based bands. They're just not my style.
- Jazz - there are plenty of people better fit for this genre, and I am not one of them.

Happy to provide samples of my voice if requested.
