I'm a bassist looking to start a new band. I have played in band in northwest Indiana for most my life now. Some bands I have been in are Silhavey, The Lloyd, Fetla, and Jeremy Williams and the Homosapiens. I'll go ahead and be honest with everyone, I'm no virtuoso but I am more then competent at my craft. I do also play guitar but I mostly just use it as a tool to write with and really have never played it in a band. So I am pretty set on staying on bass.
I am also a visual artist as well, so I can do most of the presswork with ease
For a long time have wanted to put together this big ass band. I'm talking about singer, guitars, bass, drums, strings (violin, viola, and cello), keys, and maybe even horns. Think an Arcade Fire kind of thing with everyone. Lots of group vocals! Lots of sonic textures! Lot of dynamics!
I want to get together and write and record an album. I lost my one true song writing partner and have a hole in my heart that he left when he left me for California. I need someone to write songs with again. We don't need a whole band at first to start writing. Once we have album in hand starting gigging in and around Chicago. Try to get the album everywhere we can, as many reviews and write-ups as we can possible get.
I feel like I have been doing this for a long time and have nothing to show for it beside some good stories but now I really want to work at pushing what I can do.
I'm already working on songs but I don't have a ton yet. I am really looking forward to getting things moving and writing more.
If you like these ideas and want to do something just write and we will go from there. You can write me at biger_lucas at yahoo dot com
Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, Sigur Rós, Aimee Mann, Bright Eyes, Broken Social Scene, Metric, Bob Dylan, American Football, Colossal, The Hold Steady, Cymbals Eat Guitar, and so on and so on...
Everything I need to make music on my end.
