Bio

Music is my life. Momma was a music teacher, I played drums in middle school, dedicated my life to music after a Phish festival, and have practiced obsessively since I got my first electric guitar. Most recently and importantly I just got accepted into the Berklee School of Music!!! Improvisational lead guitar is my strength, but I like to play rhythm, write songs, play bass, make beats, sing, etc... I just love making music. Labels and genres suck, but to avoid being vague I would describe my style and interests as a mixture of blues, funk, psychedelic rock, latin, world, trance, avante-garde jazz, and electronica. As long as something is original and made with pure purposes I can dig it. I would also consider experimenting and inventing sound fx to be another one of my strengths and interests. In my opinion, It's very healthy for a musician to break outside the borders of modern music in pursuit of new ideas. My dream is to be part of a unique jam band that mixes crazy American music with all the beautiful forms of music from around the world (other worlds too I guess). It's gonna kick ass when I find a cool band to play in and turn this into a career, but I'm way more concerned about making good music then being rich, famous, or cool. Music changed my life, and I'm going to bust my ass to do the same thing for other people.
