ABOUT

I am a guitarist looking to form an 80s rock band. I am 48 years old and have been playing guitar since I was 13 years old.

Through high school, university, and my working life, I have played in several bands, providing rhythm & lead guitar and some lead vocals.

Although music is not my profession, I like to approach it with a professional mindset. I practice every day and like to rehearse once a month. I like to master the material by paying attention to the details and by playing as a band with a sense of purpose. I am looking for like-minded people to make great music with.
