Bass Guitar, Drums.

ABOUT

A Cardiff based melodic instrumental rock act are looking to recruit a drummer and bass player with an aim to bringing existing material to life on stage, and to possibly write collaboratively in the future. A reasonable level of technical ability will be required for both roles, and we’d like to work with people who are committed to excellence in their work. That said, this group is 'just for fun', and is very much a side project to existing careers. We hope to rehearse and perform maybe once a week or so in and around the South Wales area.

The music is keyboard and guitar led, heavily influenced by progressive rock and strongly focussed on melody. We're not heavy, and we're not shredders, but the pieces have scale, drama and depth, without taking themselves too seriously. A studio album of material is due to release in early 2019, and a sample of this can be provided on request.

If you're in your twenties or thirties, a friendly person and a capable player, then we’d love to hear from you.

Influences

Listening to our music, you'll hear traces of progressive rock, modern classical, classic rock and musical theatre. We love Steven Wilson, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, Neal Morse, Yes, Genesis, Rush and Frost*, but we also love John Williams, Joe Satriani, The Beatles, John Mayer, Hans Zimmer, Stephen Schwartz and Coldplay.

EQUIPMENT

Drummers will need to provide their own equipment, although rehearsal spaces can of course provide backline if needed.

A 5 string bass is required for most pieces, and the ability to play fretless for certain sections would be a big bonus. A range of suitable basses can be provided if necessary.
