SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I started playing music in 4th grade as a percussionist in my schools concert band up until my senior year in high school when I picked up bass to fill a spot in my friends metal band, been playing bass for about 7 years now. My main interest is in rock, metal, prog, or alternative, and cover bands if im into the covers. My ideal band would be something like Chevelle or Nonpoint or Mudvayne or Sevendust, basically very melodic but not afraid to bring the heavy. I'm also into the whole muse sound too, been slowly building a pedalboard so I can get some cazy sounds. And lastly, been getting into more prog metal as of late, been listening to bands like Periphery, BTBAM, Tesseract, Animals as Leaders, Protest the Hero, The Safety Fire, The Contortionist, etc, so I'd love to try a group like that, just keep in mind im not really as good as the guys in some of these groups. My email is blmitchell87@gmai1.c0m and fb is faceb0ok.com/bassface87. I am currently wanting to play again but it should be noted that I work til 11 oclock on saturdays so that might put a wrench into things but I changed my days off to thursdays and fridays for this purpose and I hope to be able to get saturdays off if need be. My dream project is a coheed & Cambria cover band fyi so if you're into that I'd love to play bass for you.

Influences

As far as root musical influences I grew up with a brother in orchestra so that type of thing was always in my ears and I grew up listening to oldies and 80s rnb, like The Eisleys, Rick James, Teena Marie, etc. Nowadays I love practicing with stuff like coheed, mudvayne, or alien ant farm, those pretty much sum up my style of playing with some of said influences infused as well. Like I said in my bio, I listen to pretty much all progressive metal at the moment so that has been going into my playing, mainly the rythmic stuff they do is what I love about that.

EQUIPMENT

Right now I have a Lakland 5501 5 string, a Carvin BX500 with an Avatar 410 cab. Pedals I own are a 3leaf groove regulator, Wren & Cuff pickle pie b, digitech bsw, and iron ether xerograph.
