Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'm in my 40s, and I've had my own band, The Proposition (formerly the Proposition Blues Band), for a couple of years, in which I'm the sole guitarist and co-lead singer, doing blues, classic r&b and a bit of psychedelic rock. I think I'd like to spend some time playing and/or singing in someone else's band - preferably someone else who knows how to promote a band and get gigs, as I have no idea what I'm doing on that front.

Contact me on patrickbrown40 (AT) (dot) com.

Influences

As a singer, I love the bluesy shouters, Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf to the likes of Joe Cocker, as well as smoother singers like Robert Cray, and as a distant target to aspire to, Freddie Mercury.

As a guitarist, I love all the classic blues players (with a particular soft spot for Peter Green), Brian May, Bernard Butler (the McAlmont & Butler stuff in particular), and my distant target to aspire to would be Mark Knopfler. I'm not a shredder but I do like a nice melodic solo. As a rhythm player I like driving riffs and playing off the bass player with partial chords and inversions.
