I'd like to contribute to the local music scene and I'm looking for a collaborator or band (new or existing) to join.
A bit about myself:
I've been involved in music to some degree since I was 15. In high school and college I played primarily in jazz bands on trumpet, piano and bass. Also, I taught myself guitar and I have a degree in music education / theory.
What I'm looking for
Sound: In the neighborhood of psychedelic / indie rock, folk and electronica. Something like Tame Impala, The New Pornographers or Beck. I'd be open to anything that isn't a jam band, new country or metal.
People: A person or group of people who are committed, open to collaboration and considerate of others. Please check your egos at the door.
I'd like to grow as a musician, build friendships, and create something true we can be proud of. Also, I'm not into music as an excuse to get as many followers as possible, hook-ups or drugs.

PhotographRecorded via cellphone ------ Simple webs they weave, patterns from the past something new created, new created Trying to believe, make the feeling last rumors over and over, over and over Same as, same is, just like your photograph fade out, fade in, just like your photograph What have you done, what can I say victory is won with more than apologies Blood on your hands, sky deepest grey just like your photograph
Self AgainRecorded via cellphone ------ Broken yourself again, soaked through the pavement living with loss like, wounded by roses You're down in the gutter, try for forgiveness too many times, wounded by thorns Renewed every morning, burned on the edge caught in the web of, life on pause We're tied by a string, hung from a ledge caught in the web of, visions you've caused Wearing your secret in the form of a smile living like your life's on trial Maybe you're shallow and life is a lie I believed your visions when I was a child
BranchesRecorded via cellphone ------ Trees branch out and make their statements You have to look up to find them I've felt the pain in words you've written Constant in this world of pavement Circular laments cross the skyline You have to look up to find them I've felt the rays in the words you've spoken Caught sunset bleeds, starstruck twilight lifeline You can burn from embers resurrected flame Hold onto the lightning listen for the thunder
WanderingRecorded via cellphone ------ In rocky fields, visions call Voices echo long after they're gone I've been waiting myself, far too long For clouds to pass and rain to fall Forty years, may be enough for some For me the promise, never comes A dollar short and a day too late The river bed and the path it takes Caught in memories, I can't decline Voices echo long after they're gone The same refrain, different songs Standing still, further down the line
