ABOUT

55 year old songwriter, plays bass and acoustic guitar looking to form a "BAND OF OLD MEN " . I'm principally a bass player who plays a bit of guitar but looking for any of the musicians I've listed, for example, if a better bass player comes along, I'll move on to backing up a better guitarist, with me on acoustic guitar...same goes for singing, ideally I would like a soul/blues on the porch type singer and the rest of the band including me can do backing vocals. Hope this makes sense? Just trying to get a core band together to get things moving and do some recordings then gigs. Songs with meaning, some sketches already written to give a template for future songs to be written with a band.
Style is a mix of alternative sounds, blues with gospel harmonies, american 60's country rock, soul with a touch of British new wave and punk.
Still got something to say , still important and still here with more experience. Male Pro minded musicians over 38 please get in touch. email; muttdasilva@.co.uk 07951702618
