SEEKINGBand to Join.
I am a lifelong musician with my primary love being the drums. I also have a decent approach to the acoustic guitar and can sing in a pinch :)
I have a very wide range of tastes and influences, and would love to find a new group of people to connect with and contribute my aggressive, yet tasteful and creative approach to the percussive arts as a member of a new or existing band or even help with a recording project.
If you are looking for a drummer (who can also hold his own as a rhythm guitar player and backup vocalist) send me a quick note and let's see if we can find some commonality in our musical goals.

A home recording project I recently did. Not an original, but a wonderful song by Neil Young and I did my best to play all of the instruments and to capture the same vibe he did...
