ABOUT

At the moment I'm looking for someone who can play another instrument, and is moderately good at vocals. I would hope that the individual can sing higher ranges than me, but I could like with harmonies haha. In the end I would love to find another guitarist/vocalist to double team songs with, as well as a bassets; and drummer at some point. For now, I'll keep it simple, and try and put the first brick in the wall.....
I am able to write full songs in hours, with all the vocal and guitar parts completely polished. I can hear the drum, and bass lines, in my head; but unfortunately cannot record those. I believe I'm gifted with a musical ear, so I'm able to utilize this skill to create catchy songs. I believe in simple complexity. This means layers, bridges, key changes, and strange octaves. With this being said, the style of music I compose is geared towards a main stream audience. It is essentially the blues/classic rock/ folk rock/ indie rock/ and grunge; all in a personal amalgamation. I'm working on a different style of song writing, with no restrictions; yet totally cohesive and appealing.

I’m able to play L-Guitar/ R-Guitar
I’m able to compose, for every instrument within the track.
I’m able to sing over a large range (Better in some keys than others)
I’m able to moderately play the piano (Could do so in a studio, not live)
I’m able to moderately play the bass (Could do so in a studio, not live)
I’m moderately proficient at music recording, and learning more fast.

I'm basically a product of the Dispatch/Sublime style of song writing for the most part. I write songs to fit different styles, so many of my songs sound as if they’re from a different source.
