ABOUT

Hey! I'm a Toronto musician (Humber Jazz grad for voice). Been a professional musician for nearly 20 years as well as a recording engineer (with a few breaks to be a carpenter, voice over artist, random shenanigans). I play jazz to punk to funk to blues to R&B/hip-hop, anything short of classical I can do it convincingly. I write music and have released a couple of records (metheusbound.ca - voice/guitars) but my current project I'm building is Hurricane James & the Bad Weather, a blues band where I'm the drummer/singer/frontman. Trying get a large cover rep going to play the GTA venues and mix in originals slowly. The vibe is allman bros, blackberry smoke, keb mo, clapton, bros landreth. A few roots/rock/funk/country influences, but at it's core a blues band. Hit me up if you're looking for serious rehearsals that lead to gigs. Do the work, have a good time doing it. If you sing backups, eeeven better.

If you're looking for a side man or cover band musician I play guitar, bass, drums, and sing at a professional level (I'm a good lead player, but I don't "shred". More melodic/pop/blues).
I'm funny af, and chill, but I also like to get to work in rehearsal. Looking for either gigging work or original artists looking to get serious about their stuff. Drop a line here or on social (same username)
