Rhythm Guitar, Drums.

ABOUT

I am a singer/songwriter and multi instrumentalist. I have been playing for over 20 years in different bands, and have worked on many solo projects as well. I wouldn't say I'm a virtuoso musician, but I think I am good at what I do. I have spent a lot of time developing my own style, and I have the necessary skill, and knowledge to create good music, and perform it.

Silver Bullet Serenade has gradually developed over the years. It started as a solo project, and has now developed into a band. A year ago I had a 4 piece band together and stepped into the front man role, but we were doing my songs under the band name Argosy. The band had problems and broke up as so many bands tend to do, and in the meantime I have been developing the identity of the band, and writing/refining songs while seeking members to join the band. A few of the songs are on my , which is linked (Wartorn, Cold Chemistry, Nobody's There). I have full songs that can be done right away, like the afore mentioned, but I also have some that have never been performed live, and others that are still in development, so we aren't an established band yet. I can get us gigs, and I am working on building a dedicated practice space. I am looking to make something epic. I have a lot of ideas, and I am constantly looking for ways to improve.

The style of the band is heavy guitars with some melodic elements, and a little bit of lead. Drums that have a solid double bass presence that is not too overpowering, and not too frequent, enough fills to make the drums interesting, A little bit of a dark sound, but not all depressing, Bass that is present, and enriches the sound. Vocals with longer sustained notes, harmony, dynamics, highs and lows, with screaming only as a back up here and there if at all. The music is moderately paced, and is a mix of Metal, Hard rock, A little bit of punk, A little bit of goth, Alternative, and progressive. Whatever that is.

Members Of Band

Brandon - Lead/Rhythm guitars, Lead vocals
Jaimee - Bass guitar, Vocals

I am looking for individuals who really like the style of music not people who are just anxious to play whatever comes along.
We are seeking a drummer, and second lead/rhythm guitarist, maybe a keyboard player later on, but keyboards are not necessary at this time. A drummer is all that is needed to start, but I want a second guitar for sure. You must have your own pro gear. Age range is late 20s to early 40s but we would prefer someone in their 30s. No drugs, 420 is ok as long as it doesn't negatively affect your ability to play.
