ABOUT

My name is Chief Mojo Rising (chosen stage name) and i am looking to either join or form a band.

this is going to be brief and right to the point so any opinions you don't like are your problem not mine.

I am looking for some variation of metal/blues/classic rock hoping to write some ballads maybe some epics, get some hard rock vocals going. i am doing everything in my power to avoid falling into the pop scene and reviving if not reinventing some great music.

hip hop / rap is not desired, i find it repulsive and an abomination toward music, very very few bands/performers can pull it off and make it sound good.

I like to play with sound, if you go to my soundcloud and listen to my 60 or so songs you will notice there is a few genres i've dabbled with and published them to the platform. i have found a few gigs of my own but since i'm alone i can't achieve the sound i record while on a stage.

Influences

My main influence is The Doors and Led Zeppelin. Their frequent messing around with sound interests me the most from any other band (with exception to the Jimi Hendrix Experience but this is about influence, not respect). the legend that is Jimmy Page and his oddity for stage performances fascinates me. these are bands that perform for the audience and not for money, they stayed as long as they were capable, sometimes surpassing 2 hours per performance (which is the way it should be... it's not a movie).

other notable influences rest on legendary songs / sounds by Bad Company, Cream, Free, T-Rex, Eagles, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Disturbed, Planet Ten (Local band i haven't heard from in over a decade) The Who, Ugly Kid Joe, Fleetwood Mac.... i'm sure you get the point.

Paul Rodgers voice is probably what i want in my ideal companion singer, either close to it or somehow better.
