ABOUT

Drummer, late 20’s from Swansea looking to start up or join a heavy/noise band. Something along the lines of Stoner/Sludge metal, Post Punk, Noise Rock, Post Metal.

Plenty of experience gain over the years. From writing, playing live, recording, networking etc.

Once lockdown has come to an end and things get back to normal, (after a few jams) I’d like to get moving full steam ahead. I want it to be fun and enjoyable but at the same time maintaining a high level of commitment to writing, releasing and touring new music as much as possible. Obviously touring would work around all members and their family/personal/work-life and planned well in advance.

I can provide videos or links to tracks from previous bands I've been in, if required.

I use Garageband to put together demos and ideas. I've recently moved and I'm unable to play/record drums at my home, so most demos will have MIDI drum parts. However, I do have a handful of mics to record some demos once the lockdown is over and the practice rooms are safe to use. Until then, I was thinking we could exchange ideas/riffs/demos online. I'm by no means a guitarist or bassist, but I can throw together a riff or two to get an idea going.

Must have good gear.
Must have transport.
Must be committed.
(Most importantly) Must be fun to hang out with.

Any questions feel free to ask.
