SEEKING

Drums.

ABOUT

STOP PRESS, FEB 2018:
Seeking capable drummer to join my three-piece project, FEW HEADS, to play original material live this year.
Example track from the new set:

I am an autodidactic musician, songwriter and engineer based in the middle of England.

My prime focus is the creation, recording and release of music with an enphasis in 2018 on performance. My guiding principle is that I try and create the kind of music that I myself would want to hear.

Music fascinates me, as does the song as an artform. I believe in strong lyrical content. I am interested in how songs translate into visual ideas and I would very much like to collaborate with anyone who is also interested in this.

I am interested in collaborating with people who can play and are technically good; but I’m also very interested in ideas, lateral thinking and creativity, so rough edges are not a barrier for me.

If I’m hanging around here, it’s probably because I’m seeking people out with a specific project in mind. At the same time, any kindred spirits please do feel free to get in touch.

Please be serious about what you do, but also please don’t take yourself too seriously. I’m not interested in ‘making it' but I am interested in making the best original music that I can. Please also have some sort of a sense of humour!

My long-term musical collaboration with The Prof is at www.fewheads (FEB 18: website currently taken down for a re-design).
