 1 2 3
I'm a working bassist (electric and upright), looking to fill out my schedule with some gigs.
Been gigging since 2009, playing popular music/classic rock, blues, jazz, musical theatre, and folk music (including Irish trad).

I have a ton of the party/wedding band repertoire either committed to memory or picked up easily. I've played a variety of musicals from Miss Saigon to Rocky Horror Picture Show. I sing leads and backups as well.

Overall, I'm most interested in playing dance music, musical theatre gigs, and any gigs that might have some relation to my general musical influences: Trent Reznor, Philip Glass, Depeche Mode, Terry Riley, Arcade Fire, Tool, Pink Floyd, The Doors, of Montreal, Bowie, Crystal Castles, Miike Snow, Deadmau5. I've been a part of some elaborately theatrical bands, so I'm happy to do fun stuff like costumes and makeup. I'm open to a lot of work scenarios basically.

As the title says, I also have a solo set (check out the link below) that I can do for private events, restaurants/cafes, etc. and I can expand into more 'experimental' territory if you're looking for something a little more ambient, minimalist, and/or psychedelic. I'm also happy to perform in contexts that involve spiritual/meditative practices, or therapeutic work i.e. yoga studios, medicine ceremonies, etc.
Overall, I'm not looking to join any original projects that aren't established/making money, unless they're extremely closely aligned with my personal musical interests (please send recordings if you're looking for that). Otherwise, an established cover band, recording, or one-off gigs would be ideal.

I have reliable transportation and pro gear.

Here's a link to my website, where you'll find examples of my playing:
