ABOUT

I'm a 19-year-old female who loves to rock it on guitar (or pretty much anything else I play!) I also do a bit of songwriting. I've got reliable transportation (willing to travel as far as Hillsboro, Vancouver, Gresham, or Oregon City). I'm not into drugs or drinking (if you like drinking, cigarettes, or 420, I don't care, as long as it's not affecting me).

I'm looking to form or join a project with people around my age (18-25, though I have played with people as old as 72!); something like alternative/rock (think of the music you would hear on 94.7) where I can play an instrument and do backup vocals, with someone else fronting the band and doing the main songwriting. I'd like to do some live shows around town relatively soon. I do have a life outside of the band (like work and school), so touring isn't really an option right now.

Skill:
Guitar - 4 years (I love lead... but I'll be your rhythm!)
Drums - 3 years
Piano/Keys - 8 years
Bass - I own one...
