- Oklahoma City, OK
- Current Setup:
- Tobias Fretless 5 and a Fender Jazz Lyte (modded). I basically use half of a small Carvin pa as a rig.
- G.A.S. List:
- Fender Sting P w/good quality bridge, p/u and tuners.
- Gigs, Bands, & Ensembles:
- My main band is fun and really good jazz trio with my wife (she's awesome!). I also freelance often just about any style. Some studio sessions too.
- Influences and Teachers:
- Narrowing it down only to bassists the following come to mind: Charlie Haden - because he tells stories when he plays and taught me to not be afraid to slow down and make it mean something, Stevie Wonder - one of the best bass players EVER!, Ron Carter - always unpredictable and inventive, Steve Swallow - proves you can really play jazz on the electric bass guitar - take that you dusty always-compartmentalizing "jazz" authorities! (Can you tell I might have some issues with that?) Aston Barrett - because of "Slave Driver"!
- Other Hobbies & Interests:
- Cinefile, Tribal art, Astronomy and The Mystery of Life
- Available for instruction:
- Oklahoma City
- Areas of Instruction::
- Bass Guitar
- Teaching Credentials:
- Made a (modest) living playing for over ten years. Also spent a few years at UCO's Jazz Program (left when I started gigging). Jazz is probably my specialty, but I love anything with Feelin'!
