ABOUT

Lead & rhythm guitarist, can also sing backing vocals/harmonies and play bass. Have been in bands before and done the usual gigs/pubs etc.

Looking for other like-minded musicians of similar age/experience to form a band or join an existing one to play together for fun (no fun, no point), compose, arrange, record and perform live in front of an audience in venues, festivals, etc.

I want to make music as a means of creative artistic expression.
Don't mind playing the odd cover but would like to focus on original material as nothing gives me more satisfaction than creating something of my own and sharing with other people who can appreciate it. Never too old for this ;-). Have a day job for a living so not doing it for the money but for the passion.

My main influences are definitely old school and I have mentioned mostly well known seminal bands and artists to show where I come from but in fact I am all for creating new music.

Just as an example and not necessarily what I want to do now, here you can listen to a couple of my songs, written and self-produced a few years ago:
