Biography

Vocalist, Musician, Home Studio, Songwriter, Lyricist:

Looking for anything goes genre-hopping collabs. A lot of my tracks are for lo-fi manipulation, don't be shy, feel free to mess 'em up! I listen to a lot of under-produced music and love listening to raw tracks of musicians "working out" ideas. I think some of the best music is crudely produced - take Link Wray's "Rumble" for example. Interested in making music with others to put up on Bandcamp. A lot of my material is short and doesn't have a lot of changes - this is purposeful to encourage collaboration and keep things fun. I keep a lot of first takes for a loose feel.

I've been in several bands - I made a low-rent Bandcamp record with a drummer friend under the name Shadow Shack (see my Bandcamp link). I did all the guitars, bass and vocals/lyrics.

Check out my Community Media uploads in ProCollabs for more project-starters -

If my tracks have a specified BPM, that means I recorded over a click-track with the specified BPM in Cubase 11 - the file will be cut so the BPM should correspond with metronomes in other DAWs.

I prefer unique lyrics/titles vs. cliché...
Here are some great generators for writing lyrics/titles:
