Bio
I am an artist by trait.

I'm best known for my music though, playing in bands since 96 and have been signed to a record label at age 16.
However during college the band fell apart and now my old drummer is in the band "Honor Bright" where as I took another route and tried experimenting.

If you listen to my old bands music you can hear that I always wanted my music to be heavy but catchy still. However I hate emo and metalcore, so trying to find that balence was key.

Now I'm ready to get back in the saddle however I'm a NYer new to Portland, OR so I don't know anyone here.

Also trying to explain my style to someone doesn't work out to well.

So right now I'm looking for members but till they come around I'm going to be recording and playing open mic nights to get my name out there.

Guitar

Category: Music
Description
My style is a mixture of "Melodic Death Metal" such as the band In Flames and heavier punk genres. However I am in no way emo or metalcore. I do not whine nor do I have a boyish voice. I have a raspy voice and scream when appropriate.
All my music is as catchy as possible, upbeat, and FULL of melody from both guitars and vocals.

Its kind of like taking the basic "Pennywise" sound but with a raspy singer. Then adding more complex / borderline spanish guitar stuff like InFlames used to do.
Also I like to through in ALLOT of bgv's in my music.

Most of the time I write the basic structure and melody to a song and allow other band members to play the song they way they want and change little things here and there.
