I want to make a band that sounds like Alter Bridge, yes!!!
vVLife story belowVv
At 12 years old I picked up sticks, joining the first band at 15 and never looking back.
Through the years I have recorded on a number of studio productions, including 3 TV appearances and 2 albums on general release. I have 1000+ live performances from 20-20,000 seats including an unforgettable tour of West Coast USA.
At the age of 18 I set up a philanthropic music promotions company promoting young talent. The company grew and received over 10 million hits through our website based community, we arranged shows and provided top acts for events all over the UK, provided website and graphics design, marketing, merchandise and rehearsal space. The company became well established and respected, however, due to a loss in the family we ceased operations in 2008.
Once recovered I became involved with a classic rock band and thoroughly enjoyed the project and playing something a little more laid back, hard hitting with the potential for some tasty grooves and fills. We recorded an album old school tape to tape and received a worldwide distribution deal sub published through Universal records. Sadly we were unable to negotiate desired contractual terms at the outset, in time what was initially an exciting and promising venture became a burden financially, tensions rose within the band and brought an abrupt halt to what could have been something magic.
Now I seek new projects to create alongside, driven, talented, self belief that you can hit the top, good attitude and creative vision.
A dream is to return stateside, California and Florida being top priorities, I love the sun, sea, cars, new money and the good life just as much as anyone else! Our focus must of course be to play great music we enjoy, entertain all we meet, build a solid following, present the band professionally, good graphics/merch/website etc. but also as a bi product of such efforts, get the band bringing in some solid income, we must get creative, provide value and ensure our efforts are rewarded, good business skills within or associated with the band is a big plus!
