ABOUT

Singer/frontperson needed for 90s/00s American Rock/Punk covers band. We've been together since late 2018 and we've been rehearsing some of the biggest rock songs from those decades such as: The Middle, Come As You Are, American Idiot, Times Like These, I'll Be There For You, My Own Worst Enemy and Semi-Charmed Life. We've got a couple of pop covers too, just to mix things up a little.

The current line-up is Guitar/backing vocals, bass and drums all in our mid to late 30s. If you can play rhythm guitar that is a big advantage, but not essential. Experience is not essential either, but transport, commitment and being able to learn songs quickly is.

We currently rehearse 6-9 on Fridays at Earth Studios. Gender is not an issue, but you will need a good knowledge of 90s and 2000s rock.

We are intending to gig once or twice a month as soon as we are ready.

On the songs on my profile, I play rhythm guitar on Greed, sang backing vocals and played lead guitar on Burn Away and sang backing vocals and played bass guitar on Over.
