ABOUT

*Updated 3/6/22*
My band “Timeless Flight”, a melodic rock band, is seeking a Vocalist, Bassist, Guitarist and Keyboardist.

We are an original Omaha-based melodic rock band that is heavily influenced by the epic rock 'n roll of the 70s and 80s. Our sound is layered and incorporates vocals, guitars, synthesizers and drums. We have a large practice space, complete with professional gear (7 guitars, 2 drum sets, 2 synthesizers and a keyboard, 3 amps), ProTools 10, a brand new PreSonus 32-channel mixer, 4 vocal microphones, the best cables on the market and a Sony FX3 cinema camera for recording practices and performances.

We are currently recording and composing original material for our debut album and have enough to fill two to four more albums. Composition / writing ability would be a great bonus but not required. We do not have expectations of becoming famous overnight, but we are pursuing a serious career in music.

We will be performing at an anime convention in February of 2022, doing some anime music covers mixed with our own originals so we gotta hit the ground running in a post-Covid world and need your help!

Timeless Flight is:
* Andy Swanson (Lead guitar, rhythm guitar, piano, synthesizers, vocals, lyrics - bandmix/andy-swanson )
* Dru DeKlotz (Drums, percussion - bandmix/dru_2k5)


Requirements:
Must be a TEAM player with a strong work ethic for twice / week practices, good ear, and mid-range or better gear that is show ready.

* Age range (21-40)
* Absolutely must be a "team-player" as your part will affect the greater whole
* Talent is no use to us if you are not easy to work with, must fit our culture
* Patience/Dedication - Material worth doing takes time and effort
* NO alcohol or drug problems
* Be proficient in your main role
* Mid-level to professional gear
* Have a job/income
* Be available to practice Saturdays 4-7pm and possible one other day during the week if that Saturday is not available for most of the members.

We don't sound like any other band out there and we are trying to keep and maintain that unique sound and make music professionally.

If you're interested, send a message with link (like to or band mix) or attachment of a recoding of ONE of the covers below, link or attachment of any other playing/compositions and links to a couple social media profiles.
