Band to Join.

ABOUT

I play in the alt fusion band Silver Dune & in the alt electronic band Lemoncoly.

The song here, is purely so you can hear my guitar and bass playing. I am not looking to play this as it is already a song in one of my other bands, but with lyrics and a much more complex time signature than the 7 -8 it has been played on here.

As these bands have taken a back seat, I am looking for something new, providing as I like the people and the music. Getting along with others is actually the most important thing for me.

I prefer to play either guitar or keyboards - (or better still, both), rather than the other instruments I can play. Lap Steel is also cool.

I’m pretty open style and genre wise, but I’m not interested in playing covers - only original material please.

I prefer complex music over simple. That said, there is an art to play something complex, but to make it sound easy for the listener. That's also what I can do. It also depends on the vibe.

I am not your typical genetic player and have my own sound.

I’m a prolific songwriter with the music and melody side being more my thing than lyrics as I don’t sing.

I play guitar, keyboards, lap steel, mandolin, bass and a bit of simple trumpet. I can play other instruments (including drums) but I’m a bit more rusty on them, so I'd prefer not to. These also include instruments I don't own.

Once things are ready to take live, I have access to a lot of venues as my wife is one of the top promotors. This includes venues all around the UK and beyond as well as festivals.
