SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'm a melodic bass player/guitarist with a good ear, an approachable personality and a high-energy stage presence. I've also got absolutely no musical prejudice, good music is just good music!

I do have a day job, but it's flexible. I'm looking to join a band that is fun and interesting. I am also very much into songwriting, especially collaborating, and ideally would like a band that would allow me to do that. No ego issues though, I love a good choon regardless of who wrote it!

I can't reply through here, so if you'd like to contact me just give me a shout at carlos_grau@
