ABOUT

I am a guy who likes to write original music. I have been writing music since I was a teenager. I used to write a lot of metal/hard rock. Then I got into writing music along the lines of traditional to modern blues, blues rock, southernish rock.

I have a singer with whom he and I mesh together very well. We immediately started writing songs together. The world has slowed us down their for a bit, but we are back to writing. We recently found a drummer and now we are looking for a bass player to complete things and get tight so when things begin to open we can get out and play.

We are looking for a bass player who can get the feel and mesh with what we are doing. We have 9 or 10 songs completed at the moment, at least another half dozen in the works. Tons of music is already written to be able to jam on. The goal is to write, get the music tight and play out. Recording would also be an eventual goal at some point.

We have a wide range of music from acoustic ballads to bluesy stuff like Indigenous, Jeff Healey and Kenny Wayne Shepherd to hard rock and metal in the vein of Black Sabbath, Alice In Chains and Soundgarden. We have debated on doing two separate projects (hopefully with the same personnel) or do it all together as an assorted variety to suit the venue so to speak. Like a chameleon type of band.

We have no aspirations of quitting our day jobs and living out of a van or touring Europe. If that is your thing, great. We just want to keep it fun and realistic while also taking it seriously if that makes sense. We are all in our early to mid 40's. The singer and I live east of the city in the Rte. 30 area where we have been holding pratices. So ideally looking for people around our age in areas east of the city.

If you are an interested bass player you can feedmecookies at my mail address beginning with a G. Thanks for reading. Go have a cookie and best of luck with your musical ventures.
