SEEKINGBass Guitar, Keyboard.
Experienced vocalist with decent live & studio gear. In the midst of putting together a new line-up. Have been back writing with the guitarist and co-writer from my previous band. We're currently putting down demos of some new tracks we've written together, which will be available soon. We've got together with a drummer, who's on a similar wavelength musically and has similar experience to us. Although we have someone lined up to dep on bass we're looking for someone a bit more permanent. We're also looking to expand the sound adding a keys/synth player; if they can play some guitar for some songs that'd be a bonus. Just to clarify this is a new band that we're putting together. Our intention is to get working on new songs as a band with a view to be back out playing in the not too distant future. Although Watford/St Albans based we're considering rehearsing in studios in north London, or as suits us all.
As well as being a vocalist I also produce tunes in my own studio. I dabble with synths and a bit of guitar though that's mostly just for songwriting. I'm interested in doing various flavours of alternative rock and/or more electronic based stuff. Getting a band together is my main priority, but could also be up for studio projects as time allows.
My vocal style is pretty flexible. I've a tenor range, plus falsetto. I can hold my notes, prefer to sing not scream or grunt, though I'm quite capable of more shouty or rapped stuff as needs be. You can hear some of my vocals if you search for "Dear Acetate", but I can turn my hand to other styles too as appropriate for the sound/style.
Have played large venues supporting big name bands as well as the usual circuit venues.
You're preferably aged 20's or 30's but age not too much of an issue if the vibe's right.
If you're fairly local to Watford, easy going and motivated get in touch. If you're on twitter then you can find me as 'St33J' - drop me a tweet for more info.

This is a demo version of a track that was reworked for our (Dear Acetate) debut album. My vocals are in the intro, verse, chorus, middle 8 and outro sections, not the bridges. The final version of the track can be heard on Dear Acetate debut album Lost Days & Nights, which can be heard in full via the website http://www.dearacetate.com You can also hear a further range of styles from me on there.
