Solid upper bass - low baritone, with some falsetto; solid backing vocals.
Pro session bassist/Producer in DC Metro area; strong arranger. I'm an "adult" (according to CL ads, defined as a homeowner/married/kids/reliable transportation/pro equipment dutifully maintained, consistently on-time and well rehearsed, etc.). Play well in multiple styles, read charts. I eschew flashy acrobatics for staying in the pocket, creating a groove, and serving the song.

This is a music video for the single "Dumb Fool" from The Grey A album release, "My Country". I play bass for The Grey A, and "act" in this video. A classic "film noir" style detective thriller with mistaken identities and a plot twist!
