SEEKINGBand to Join.
Looking for a covers or original band in the Yeovil and surrounding area. Open to offers or ideas, please bounce them off me, I can only say no!
I am currently on the bass. As I have previously fronted bands I decided to take a move towards the back line as I have got a little bit older. I am also a reasonably accomplished guitarist, somewhere between lead and rythm but more comfortable on the ryhthm side of things. I am quite happy to do backing vocals and even lead vox on the odd song or two but no longer wish to be the main focus of the band.
I don't mind joining an established band or starting fresh with a new one. I am also particularly interested in some singer/songwriter work and have worked with the famous Drew Crow Star in the past. I am not a prolific songwriter but I do work quite well within a band and know how to pace, structure and change songs. I am experienced in many different types of bands and have played in original indie, rock, punk, acoustic and pop(ish) bands in the past. I have also played in traditional covers bands performing classic rock (AC/DC, Free, Sabbath, Zep, Who, Kinks etc.), newer pop and rock (Rage, Foos, Stereophonics, Killers, Pearl Jam etc.) and soul/ska/motown (Marvin, Otis, Specials etc.).
I am 37 years old but I'd rather that not put people off!
