SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums.
Unfortunately my musical Partner in Crime has decided to move away soon, so I’m keeping my eye out for new opportunities to keep my creativity flowing. Whether that means joining another band, or forming a new one, I don’t mind. Original material is of more interest, but I’m certainly open to covers if they’re the right ones; but please, not the usual, corny, middle of the road, sing-along “crowd pleasers” - let’s do something more interesting and less predictable.
I’m a competent guitar player (pigeonholing “lead or rhythm” is pointless, as at the end of the day we’re all just guitar players of differing styles and abilities, right?) with decent backing vocals (although I’ve been doing my best to front my current project). I’m very creative, fairly prolific songwriter, lots of good ideas - I love a good riff, and I’m a sucker for drones and drop tunings!
I’m no longer looking to conquer the world - just to have some creative fun with like-minded musicians, play some excellent music, and do some fun gigs (well!)
The uploaded tune below is of my current band to give you some idea - I play all the guitars and vocals. Plug in your headphones, crank it up and enjoy.
