Multi-keyboardist, pianist, synthesist, sound designer, music director, back-line keyboard tech.
Specialize in recreating studio recordings live without the use of backing tracks. Sounds are spot on, chops are tasty, and feel is soulful.
Known for being a second guitar player on keys. Since I also play guitar, I know the voicings and have the sounds to make a one-guitar band sound like it has two.
I play a keytar. Don't hate.
