SEEKING

Acoustic Guitar, Vocalist - Baritone.

ABOUT

I have a number of songs I've written over the past decades that I want to finally record properly, as well as a bunch of new material that I'd love to develop with musicians.

My strengths are probably in lyrics (I'm a pretty well-known poet) and lead melodies. My weaknesses are in general competence with instruments but you can hear on my demo tracks what I can do.

I'd also like to collaborate with others on their projects, either by helping with the songwriting, background singing, or even playing guitar or drums (though I don't have a kit).

I really love experimenting in the studio though I also like the raw post-punk sound.

I also love singing live and would consider a covers band. I always thought there needed to be a Scott Walker cover band (he's about my range and timber).

All of these demos as VERY ROUGH, especially the singing. I just wanted for the most part to get the idea down. Some were recorded several years ago, most last year.
