ABOUT

I'm a longtime musician and very dedicated. Have been influenced by many artists and genres and have a lot of experience playing live, though not as often in a band format. Just looking to see who's out there. I write lyrics and songs prolifically and have somewhere around 150 originals for guitar and keyboard. I'm mostly interested in playing Fender Rhodes style keyboard for the songs of my own I'd like to do because they are my most recent focus and most suited to a band type arrangement. Hoping to find someone who also writes and composes to share and alternate songs and singing duties with. Influences are important to me. I really only want to play with others who have similar musical influences as my own. I'm not into metal, heavy rock, punk, etc.The artists listed below can provide a good idea of the influences and elements in my own music Best times for me are during the day or else after 11 at night, or any time on weekends.
