ABOUT

I'd love to hook up with people to make original music. No covers/tribute etc. One other or ten others - either way. I want to record, do gigs, make music vids, anything. I dont really mind about genre as long as its original. Live instrument musicians or home studio electronica geeks, pop singers or rap singers, just people who want to have fun making music. I kind of play anything ok and fill my tracks with my own live instruments and samples, but would appreciate some talent. I've played in stacks of bands from funk to heavy metal to jazz to country on drums/guitar/bass (none particularly well) but think ive got an ok ear and a few hooks/riffs/tunes up my sleeve.
