Hi, I'm Darren I play acoustic & electric guitar and keyboards. I live in to St Neots just inside Cambridgeshire.
I am keen to hear from vocalists and bass players located in Beds/Cambs/Herts to do any one or more of the following:-
* Play open mic nights
* Collaborate online
* Form a gigging duo/trio doing covers wherever for beer money and fun.
I love all kinds of music, new and old. Prefer to do covers since it makes life easier (for me at least).
I have played live in various small time bands viz:
* The Midweekenders 2011 - 2014 *
* Chilled Out 2013 - 2015 *
* The Crumbles 2015 - 2017 *
* The Eclisped 2018 - 2020 *
I have some experience recording using my own lo-fi equipment.
The first video is a recent online collaboration, something to do in a lock down. The second video is a promo of the crumbles, a band I was in.
The MP3 playlist songs are acoustic instrumentals, a bit of a work in progress over the years as I learn the fine art of recording! And some recordings of a duo project with female vocals.
Up to others to judge but I think I am easy to get on with and am confident playing live.
I have studied classical guitar to grade 8 level and passed RGT acoustic grade 7 if exams are anything to brag about.
