ABOUT

Lead guitar/vocalist looking to join or form a band to have some fun and gig.
I want to play with people who don't take themselves too seriously and like to push out of the comfort zone occasionally and do something a bit special. I'm happy to play covers and original material. It's the spirit of the music and having enough freedom to express yourself and make things your own that's important to me.
I play for the love of music and feeling a great vibe with my bandmates. I like a laugh and I want people to express themselves through their music. I'm not really interested in copying anyone note for note and I prefer to play with that approach. I Believe you can still be creative even when you're covering other artistes songs.
I don't mind a challenge and putting in some hard work with the right people. Persistance is the key.
I expect to receive respect and support from band members because that's what my band members get from me.
I'm a writer too and enjoy creating original stuff and performing it.
I'm an accomplished acoustic guitarist too and have done hundreds of solo gigs doing original and covers songs. Supported Pierre Bensusan, Fairport Convention, Gordon Giltrap.
For me music should be about fun and having a good time.
My experience is, find the right people and it'll bring out the best in you and them and be awesome . If its wrong it'll be pants.. Ha!!
Won't put up with lazy folks who want an easy life whilst their band mates bust a gut making things happen.
If that sounds like something you'd like to get involved in then I'd love to hear from you.
Nigel.
