ABOUT

Hello!

I'm a piano/keys player looking to form a band. I've written a few tunes to start working on (and to give you an idea of my style) and then I'd like to start writing material as a band. I want this to be a creative collective, not a solo project.

I'm looking for VOCALS, BASS, DRUMS, and GUITAR to start with. Maybe other instruments later.

The plan is to home-record three or four songs and get some gigs, then do a more professional recording, get more gigs… rinse, repeat. Hopefully it'll eventually make us all a bit of money, but if that's your main goal then I'm maybe not your safest bet ;)

The tunes here are rough demo versions. Aside from the piano and organ, all the instrumental parts were programmed (often badly) and are definitely not set in stone. The vocal melodies should be treated as a guide – I can't sing very well, but I am a master at over-using pitch correction.

Special thanks to Foss for kindly laying down vocals on "Not So Bad" so it sounds a bit more appealing :)

I'm looking for people who can bring their own style and creativity to the music. Here's a few specific thoughts:

VOCALISTS: I need a voice that covers the soft and beautiful ("Solid Crew") as well as the strong and edgy ("As We Say Back Home"). Female/male/other doesn't matter. I'm open to trying out different styles and tones of voice to see what works. I don't intend on being the only lyricist, so if you can write words as well that's a definite plus!

BASSISTS: The bass parts were all played on a keyboard and then edited, so they don't really sound like bass guitar lines. Bring your groove and set it free.

DRUMMERS: The drums were all either programmed or brought forth by the magic of Logic's Drummer plug-in. In some places they work and in others they don't. Bring your rhythm.

GUITARISTS: There's no guitar on any of the tunes yet, but I'd like there to be. Bring everything.

So, if you think these tunes have potential and want to get involved in making them awesome, please get in touch :)

I'm also up for collaborating on other people's music.
