SEEKING

Band to Join, Rhythm Guitar, Vocalist.

ABOUT

32 y/o long haired, mildly hippyish, bass player living in hampshire. Have played since I was 14 and been in various originals and cover bands, experienced backing and lead vocalist (prefer doing backing). Also played piano ages 6-16, started lessons again in 2015, not quite back to gigging standard yet but would love to improve by writing/rehearsing with others. Have full time employment so looking to gig a couple of times a month and can do weekday evening rehearsals.
Current band has ended due to people moving away so looking for something new.
I have access to a recording studio as well.

Influences

Fairly wide range of rock from Camel, jethro tull, focus, Rush and the like to The Offspring, System of a down, Reuben, Dire Straits, flogging Molly, Deep purple. Pretty much anything from the 70's

I believe bands such as coldplay and elbow are Satan incarnate so if that's your thing I'm probably not your guy.
