what i’m looking for:
available to work with a band, musician, and/or producer on recordings, showcases, tours, and other live performances. also available for fill-in work on sessions and gigs.
what you get:
i am very aware of the value of time (studio, rehearsals, gigs/touring), so I pride myself on being always on time, music charts prepared, listening and commited to getting it right. what you don't get with me is drama, practicing fills while you tune your instruments, or lack of passion/creativity.
