SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I recently moved to Asheville from Los Angeles, where I played in a couple of bands and worked as a studio musician. My strongest musical commitment was to my band Badwater who, after 4 years of playing, amicably parted ways to explore other opportunities. My path brought me to Asheville, where I'm excited to explore the local music scene and find some talented musicians to collaborate with. I'm open to playing covers and originals, so long as it's fun and some money can be made.

Influences

I'm influenced by everything I hear every day. If Mitch Mitchell or Ginger Baker or Ian Paice or Neil Peart hits my speakers I'm air drumming until the song is over. I can watch hours of Gavin Harrison videos on be. Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa always get my blood pumping. Hell even listening to Katy Perry in my girlfriends car can inspire ideas. Ultimately I think the key to stirring the pot of creativity as a writer and a musician is to keep your doors open to all that surrounds you.
