SEEKINGVocalist - Soprano, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Keyboard, Piano, Background Singer.
I am the sole guitarist in a rock covers band based in the Brentwood area playing some challenging old school classic covers by bands such as “Yes”,”Deep Purple” Led Zeppelin”, “Pink Floyd”, Steely Dan etc, though with some more current bands and material thrown in for good measure, and we are also in the process of writing/composing/recording some of our own material.
We do play the odd heavy rock number but we would not describe ourselves as “heavy-metal”, preferring, as we do, the more melodic side of things within the rock genre. Creating etherial sound-scapes and interesting melodies and chord progressions is something that appeals to us.
I would be very interested in finding a budding Rick Wakeman/John Lord/Don Airey and ideally with the ability to sing, if only backing vocals. I would also like to find a second guitarist who can play lead/rhythm guitar and sing vocal harmonies. Both would be positively accretive to our line-up.
Ideally we are trying to find new members with talent, commitment, a good sense of humour and no “ego”!
We have our own exclusive air conditioned and/or heated rehearsal and recording facility which is a godsend, and so we can rehearse and are able to spend any amount of time recording, without having to worry about the cost of doing the same.
Present Line-up is Bass, Drums, Guitar and lead vocal.
We are committed to a regime of regular rehearsals and recording sessions with only the occasional live gig thrown in at present, though the aim is for this to become a more regular feature once the line up is complete and along with the new members we are all up to speed with the set (the set list as it stands can be sent upon request).
From a recording stand-point we are interested in finding any talented local musicians who would like to get involved, especially female lead and/or backing vocalists, if you possess the requisite skills then we pay no heed to your appearance, age, colour, creed or background, just the ability to make good music, that is all that matters.
The aim is simple, to work hard at producing good quality music, whilst hopefully having a tremendous amount of fun in the process.
So if any of the above sounds of interest then please either respond to this ad or call me (Ian) on 07921 065 224 for a chat and to explore what could be some exciting possibilities.
