ABOUT

Former professional musician moved into the Grand Forks BC area over a year ago. Being in a small town, its been tough to meet other musicians, and I'd love the opportunity to know more. My background includes classical training, gigging, as well as running my own studio on several occasions, including building the studio. Some production/recording and audio engineering background also. Really enjoy powerful, groove driven funk/jazz cross-overs as well as cross-overs in Jazz and House Music etc. Love feel-good music, and also enjoy bands WITHOUT a vocalist from time to time, which is good for the Nu-Soul.

If you were to try to pin down who I am musically, its a live-performance composer. I like to WRITE original music with others, as well as perform that original music. Yes, I am open to a Cover Band, but I've found that Covers are so pronounced that its very hard to meet other original composers. I'd prefer to make music with others, not play the standards of others.

Cheers and thanks for reading!
