About
Hi, I'm a Singer / Drummer with experience in Pop/Rock, Alt Rock, Country, Blues, Dance, Latino Dance Beats. (Live Touring, Entertainer, DJ) I have an "adequate" understanding of music theory, play a bit of Bass, Guitar & Piano for writing & producing, but when I perform LIVE, Drumming is where I "sit" most comfortably. :-) With over 30 years experience programming midi, LIVE sound engineer, studio recording / mixing / producing with DAWs, I have a fully mic'ed drum kit & an electronic drum kit ready to go at my Home Studio for any collab. project. I can deliver that Led Zepp, Metallica drive but can also switch to a more sobre Country / Blues feel. I prefer Musical performances that have dynamics.

Songwriting Achievements:
Aside from Jingles, I have yet to release my music commercially because I feel that most of my songs need more tweaking, therefore are not yet ready. Ranging from, unfinished lyrics, rough takes of Toplines, need improved arrangements, production / musical performance.

The reason they're unfinished is that I'm opened to external input, I like to bounce ideas off team collaborators that have a fresh view / opinion, and a different sound / arrangement than what I had originally "hatched" / recorded.

Any ideas? I can morph into many styles, (Death Metal's not one of them). So feel free to hit me up, who knows what magic moment "will" pop out. Music is all about creating that "Magic Moment". The sum of collaborators is always > than writing alone.

Peace!
