ABOUT

Keeping it short and sweet. I am a 21 year old multi-instrumentalist from the South East. I studied Music Production at Southampton Solent University. Whilst there I was part of a vibrant open mic / jam night scene between 4 different venues where I picked up more knowledge on guitar, bass, keys, drums and vocals. I had 3 bands over the 3 years I spent in Southampton but had to return home due to insufficient funds.

I am trying out this site as I have struggled to find any possible band members since returning home. Since I have been in 8 different bands in total and always wound up on bass & backing vocals, I'd like to advertise myself more as a rhythm guitarist and lead vocalist. At very least to try it out as people have told me my playing and singing has improved ten-fold in the last few years.

I am looking for anything from a 3 to a 5 piece band, no preference on gender, I am looking more for how well we'd be able to jam together and write together, with flexibility over who has a say in what. Aiming for the age category of 18-25, as I myself am 21 and aim to be playing to an audience of similar age. That's not to say 'no-one over 25' it's just a rough guideline in my vision, which is malleable.

Cheers, oh and if the site doesn't say anywhere already, my name's Michael. I hope hear from you soon!
