I'm a classically trained percussionist who has played everything from jazz drum set and vibraphone, orchestral percussion, and advanced mallet percussion to Balinese Gamelan, West African drumming, Middle Eastern hand drumming, and steel pan. I use all of these influences to write unique pop songs that are sure to stick in your head.
I can track percussion or vocals on your project including:
Auxiliary percussion: cajon, tambourine, triangle, shaker, caxixi, riq, desk bells, found percussion
Electronic mallet percussion (or other sounds) through my Pearl malletSTATION and Ableton Live
My speciality is vibraphone and mallet percussion. I can improvise and read chord changes from a lead sheet, and can sight read and master written music quickly. In my personal songwriting I write for vibraphone, and perform by singing and playing vibraphone simultaneously. From this I am familiar with playing vibraphone in many styles of music, including jazz, pop, singer-songwriter, classical, ambient, and new music.
I can write music, lyrics, and top line for various styles of music. With my background in world music, jazz, pop, and my education in music theory I can write and arrange music that will sound unique and in line with your vision.
I'm also a singer, with the ability to have powerful sound but specializing in more delicate and intimate music. I'm able to provide a jazzier, more alternative sound to give your song a more distinctive sound and style.
