ABOUT

As a keyboard player, I enjoy integrating back tracks, but playing live on stage with them. I do not overplay or look for opportunities to solo, just like to fill in with some cool textures, hooky parts when it fits, and loops for groove accents when it fits.

As a bass player, I like to stay on the bottom mostly, and just groove with the drummer. I don't like to over play, I'm not that technical of a player. I look to groove and keep it simple. I also don't mind suggestions though, if I'm too simple on something I'll play more if you show me what you want.

Influences

As a keyboard player: Probably mostly 80s bands like Depeche Mode, Cure, some darker stuff like Chameleons, Mission UK, Cocteau Twins, other innovative projects from those days. I also like dance tracks and used to write tracks for a euro label. I like some funky stuff too... pretty open taste in music.

As a bass player, mostly 90's Alt Rock was what I played the most of, back in the day I new the Duran Duran stuff and enjoyed playing that... very innovative back then, very cool bass lines.
