Well COVID put the kaybosh on most things musical.
Just prior to COVID I was finalizing pre-production for an upcoming vocal jazz album and European tour.
Mostly free form Rubato. Voice and piano. Influenced by the likes of Chet Baker, Nina Simone, Dinah Washington, Betty Carter, Abbey Lincoln.
It's on hold until the COVID regulations lift.
I also do a grunge/post grunge, original rock project which has elements of Alice in chains and smashing pumpkins in it.
These two are my avenues of expression. Very different paths true....
Vocal register F2 to Bflat4. with a passagio at F4.
I've toured halfway around the world and back. I love playing if it feels right.
Ideally I'm looking for a guitarist for my grunge thing.
Possible players for the jazz path.

I studied classical voice and was specialized in the heldentenor repertoire. So, I have the bottom of the baritone/ the dark chocolate of it (think Jim Morrison or Bowie or Scott Walker for that matter) of it, as well as the top of the dramatic tenor.
