I consider myself a vocalist first and secondarily a guitar player. I learned how to play guitar so I would have a conduate for my vocals. My guitar skills are moderate while my vocals are above average (in my opinion).

I've been singing and making up songs my whole life. It is only in the last 10 years or so that I have intentionally written them down and created accompanying guitar for them.

I am at a point now where my guitar is no longer enough for my songs. My playing ability had become a limitation. I am hoping to find the right person to collaborate with to unleash the endless potentials of my vocal expression.

I want to create.I do not feel limited to any specific genre. That said I do value the robust soundscapes of electronic music. 

For me, singing is often an expression of a different mind-state. A merging of primal emotion with rational interpretation. I'm hoping to go as far as I can down this path but in order to do that I need to find the right person (people) to work with.  And most importantly, I need to be able to feel safe and be vulnerable and not worry about fitting into a pre-determined box.

That said, I really value the idea of building something collaboratively.

I don't have a lot of free time or money to invest in this passion project, but I will give it everything I can when time permits.

I have linked to my sound cloud account where you can checkout some of my old songs. Please note that these songs do not reflect the type of music that I wish to create now.

I will also post (to soundcloud) some song fragments; vocals in need of conduates.

If something inspires you and you think we are a good fit for collaboration, please reach out.
