SEEKINGBand to Join.
Have done rock, have done jazz, now looking for something a little different. Nu-folk perhaps, or a piano/bass/drums trio, to do gigs when the circumstances improve.
The audio on here is a mixture of own compositions, covers and tracks from bands I've been with. Personally I have a wide variety of musical tastes (see below) and would be keen to work with anyone who has an unusual slant or unorthodox instrumentation.
Based south of Chichester but can travel. Good availability and commitment. Don't have Whatsapp or Fbk, so contact me via email, bass (at) elmac (dot) myzen (dot) co (dot) uk
