ABOUT

I love playing music, song writing and collaborating with others to make something good happen. I have been around the music industry for a while but during these last years with young children, I haven't been playing much with others. I do record and produce other people's music full-time, which keeps me active, but I feel like I'm ready to do something I can dig my teeth into.

See where I work and hear samples:

(go to the music production page)

You can hear recordings I've worked on and most of them have me playing the guitars and bass, though some were just engineered by me.

So who am I looking for? I'm not sure. Probably a singer/song writer, or a group of people who want to make a funk or 90's pop band that plays at birthday parties :) ... I don't know for sure. But I want it to be fun and lighthearted, not too serious but also not a waste of time. It would be nice if we can play a gig or two a month and do some recording.

Influences

There are certain styles I don't think I can play very well like chicken picking country, sweep picking arpeggios, slap bass, jazz/fusion solos, playing bizarre time signatures, etc. but I can fake a lot of other styles.

I like Sufjan Stevens, Imogen Heap, Nils Frahm, Passenger, Coldplay, U2, Vulfpeck, Peter Gabriel, I love genres like folk, funk, classic rock, 80s and 90s rock and pop, indie, alternative, power pop, any music that makes people dance and sing.

I don't really like the new country stuff, modern rap (old rap is great though), death metal or anything that will just make my ears ring more than they already do. :)
