SEEKINGBand to Join, Other.
I'm a pro musician in the NYC area, and have played on 3 continents (travel is not an issue if the gig is worth it in one way or another - not just monetarily!)and been a pro player for decades. Mostly I play electric and upright basses, but also sing strongly and dabble in flute and keys. That being said, I'm primarily a bassist/vocalist.
I'm hoping to make useful contacts with pros in the music biz in NS with the hopeful goal of either booking a bunch of time-clustered gigs and coming up for them and/or eventually relocating. I need contacts!
I play virtually all genres (rock, folk, Celtic, blues, musicals, much more), am classically trained, read, know theory, teach, and hold a B.A. in music.
If you want more info, please contact me and I'll send you my bio. Also, if you have any suggestions on contacts that might be useful, please let me know, and feel free to forward my info to serious people.

Living Your Life Alone
Living Your Life Alone Year: 2003 Genre: Other
This is a track I did with the songwriter. She's on guitar and lead vocal, I'm on fretless bass and harmony. Great song (she's a great writer) and I particularly like the nakedness of the production. Every note is exposed.
Block of Ice
Block of Ice Year: 2009 Album: A Heart and An Open Road Genre: Other
This is from a recent release by a signed artist with whom I play and record. The label is Motema, a jazz label although this cut fits a different style. Difficult to categorize. Blues? Jazz? Rock? Great musicians in this band.
