I've been playing bass, drums, and guitar since I was 12. Everyone in my family is pretty much a musician and started out just tinkering around on my Dad's bass. He gave me a few tips and I've been giggin' since. I currently play with the Ryan Humbert Band, Branches of the Same Tree, and I am also a Solo Bassist.
What gear do you use?
Elrick and Prat basses. I love my bass made from Warmoth parts! tons of effects. Erie and RMV drums, Sabian Cymbals.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
First my Dad... he hipped me to people like Chuck Rainey, John Paul Jones, Paul McCartney, and Chris Squire... I was really in to Flea back in the day... die hard Jaco Fan... hugh Victor Wooten Fan. Richard Bona, Tons more!
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
