My name is Elliott Reagan, I'm 22 and from Greenwich in London.
I've been playing guitar for about 5 or 6 years now, and have been writing songs and looking to form a band with my drummer brother for about three years.
I've not had much luck finding band members to form a band from the ground up so I'm now looking to join an existing band.
I've got pro standard gear, as outlined later, and a lot of free time as I only work three days a week. I'm looking for a modern rock band with a mix of influences, nothing too metal and nothing too soft, but I'm flexible and can play most things.
I'm only interested in committed bands that are really trying to make something of themselves.
Unfortunately at the moment I don't have my own transport, but I have some pretty portable gear so getting around really isn't too much of a problem.
