ABOUT

Would love to join/form a band, or find a producer/percussionist to work with. Also open to collaborating on one offs, or just jamming in general.

If I had to pick one, I'd say primarily I'm a vocalist. I'm classically trained, and try to be versatile with the styles/genera I sing, with heavy influence from singers like Chris Cornell, Chester Bennington, Thom York, Matthew Bellamy, Chino Moreno. People have also told me I remind them of the singers for Finger 11 and Killswitch Engage.

I'm a solid rhythm guitarist and riff writer, I'm comfortable being the sole guitarist, but have no issues deferring to a competent lead guitarist. I've also been incorporating more effects and synth pedals into my playing lately to change things up, and fill space in a way that an electric guitar by itself can't do.

I like working creatively with others. I'm good at coming up with starting points for songs, or taking others work and expanding/refining it. I often tend to write dark, moody stuff.
Something I'd love to experiment with is finding a mix between The Weeknd's early style of music, with some Deftones/NIN influence. But I also love acoustic music, strings, and anything else with a solid emotion a listener can connect with.
