ABOUT

Looking to do original music but understand covers are necessary to get people to listen to you.

I like to write, particularly lyrics. If you are not honestly interested in other's material I'm not your guy. But out of practicality/flexibility I will learn all of a band's stuff first - I am the new guy. :)

I've done both playing bass and singing lead on a few recordings but don't think that qualifies me as a "studio musician" by any stretch. I'm a good man for backups - high tenor almost to chick range when I work it, I understand harmonizing from singing in churches. ;) I can read music.
Even if it's just for pleasure, lets get some stuff done.

Influences

Started with classical music, blah, blah started rocking it up. . . .I listen to everything but opera and thug rap. I've played most of the genres listed on Bandmix.
Genres I am not that interested in playing but WILL(nicely):
Classic rock - it's classic, it's cool. But old. Can we re-do it?
Growler rock, i.e. music for a growling singer. Pass
Blues & Country - I like them but don't want to play them all night.

I do like:
ROCK, Prog., Alternative, Rap, Speed Rock, Rock-Rap,Funk, Classical, Spiritual, World, Jazz,some metal - see comment regarding growlers above.

If the music doesn't have a message or story I'll probably consider it pointless.
