Most immediately, looking for a working band to gig and or tour with. classic rock, alt, r&b, funk, disco, blues.
Second, looking to hire a drummer in the Rochesterish area for drum tracking.
I am new to Rochester and looking to create a network of players to work with, hire for tracking, and befriend. I am originally from Los Angeles and played professionally for many years with LA as my base. I have been composing and recording for my entire life. I maintain a home studio and hope to find some bass players and drummers to hire for tracking in the near future. Also interested in finding others to play with and open to what kind of projects might arise. I would like to play with people who are equal or better than I am in terms of training.
I continue to study fretboard and keyboard harmonic theory. I push myself to grow as an improvisor, player, and composer. I would love to meet players who are like minded. My main instrument is electric guitar. I spent my twenties playing jazz piano and fusion. I compose on guitar, keyboards, and bass, and I am a vocalist and have been hired in all four capacities to play rock, R&B, fusion, jazz, rock, pop, and funk. I tend to write music in the styles of funk rock, blues rock, alternative rock, jazz inflected rock. I enjoy writing in odd times signatures and would love to find players who share that interest. I am working on a compilation of tunes that span rock, jazz, and funk. I will also be looking to hire a versatile drummer who can play difficult time signature changes for a few keyboard based jazz songs i would like to record. I also write ambient music for film.
