I'd like to collaborate with other musicians, mainly for songwriting and production. I prefer songs with energy and strong melodies regardless of genre, but tend to write rock, blues rock and pop folk. Ideally I'd like to work with another musician who has strong songwriting skills and is comfortable alternating between lead and harmony vocal roles. Our styles would somewhat overlap but be different enough to pull the music in interesting directions.
Info about the song samples I chose from different projects:
Freak Show - from a seasonal Halloween album I wrote and produced and few years ago. Performed all vocals and instruments.
Along the Way - a rough idea that's more recent.
Without Reason - from a 90's solo project called Dreamlore (not the modern metal band with the same name), which was distributed via the old Z-Rock station and overseas. I produced the album and performed all instruments and vocals.
Confined to Destiny - a finger-picked classical-style piece also from the Dreamlore album.
