SEEKINGBand to Join.
I started as a drummer and eventually picked up rhythm guitar and piano. I have my own project (The Young Novelists) for which I play rhythm guitar and sing mostly lead vocals and some harmony vocals. My project tours 80-100 dates per year in Canada and the United States, but I'm looking to do more touring outside of that.
I state my availability below as mostly days, but I am definitely free 2-3 nights a week, for rehearsing. For shows/tours I can be available for stretches of time.

For drums I use a Taye MapleStudio 4-piece drumkit with various Sabian cymbals (full set of AAX Stage, B8, and some AAMedium).

I also own a melodica, glockenspiel, and various percussion devices (tambourines, shakers).
