ABOUT

Bassist for The RadioSonics (www.theradiosonics.com).

I have lots of experience. Played to 5,000+ at major festivals on some nights and to no one but the bartender on others. It's all a part of the journey :)

I'm not a pro, but I consider hard work as part of the fun. I know what it requires for a band to get regular bookings and re-bookings. It has to be enoyable, but it does take serious commitment, a knowledge of what people will come out to see, and treating every gig as an audition for future gigs. It's worth it when it works.

Quadruple-vaxxed, pro-science.

Kasablanca Blvd (rock originals, 2006-07)

PunchTube (rock originals, 2010, live only)

Influences

Wide range of listening and playing interests. For playing live, I'm for anything that makes it fun for the audience. What I listen to at home and what I play on stage are not necessarily the same. For cover songs, my playing style is influenced by whoever is on the original. When writing my own parts in original bands, it really depends on the song. With the originals on the this page, Brace For Echo is an example of where a busier bassline naturally fit (I wrote the lyrics to that one as well). Shoreline is one where I played a simple line as anything more complicated would have ruined the mood of the song.
