    Favorite Genres:
    Americana and contemporary roots music (Iron and Wine, Gillian Welch, Lukas Nelson, etc.). Lyrically intelligent music (Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Rogers & Hammerstein/Hart). Timeless, heartfelt folk. Basically I'm a sucker for a good singer, putting a good song across.
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    I play electric bass in Lady May & The Working Days, an Americana-funk fusion band based in Marin County, California. On double bass, I mostly back up singer/songwriters at venues in the San Francisco Bay
    Hobbies and Interests:
    Traveling. Sushi. Tiki bars. My excellent partner at http://www.juliascott.net.
    Professionally, I'm a writer of fiction and nonfiction. Music, being nonverbal, is sort of a sanity thing.
