Allright, here's my new music page. Needs some new tracks and photos, but damn that's better. Actually tells you something about me as a musician. :-)
I have a few home studio projects in the pipeline... a memorial to Jon Pratt, with my old bandmates from Pictureflood ... one Obsidian Shell solo cover (down a couple octaves, not falsetto :) ... and sketches of covers and originals I'd like to perform with a band ...
No rush, but I want to start playing in pop/rock/metal groups again. Just local groups, mostly covers. I'm looking for "low key" - no ear-splitting Marshall stacks - danceable yet edgy. We could play in some pretty classy joints :)
Lo-fi acoustic recordings
