About
I'm a late '90s ska/funk/rock guitarist and songwriter who got married, had kids and started a business. Found myself with newfound time four years ago and recommitted myself to making new music inspired by Dave Matthews, Ratatat, Weezer, Chromeo, Broken Social Scene and other odd-fit influences. My iTunes playlist of song ideas is pushing 800 but almost none of them are substantially finished. Need fresh perspective, help with arrangement and lyrics and a closer's mentality. Need someone to listen, curate, collaborate and complete.
