ABOUT

Experienced former full-time Chicago pro rock & roller (writing/vox/guitars/etc) seeking special members for new project: Originals priority, then covers as time and development allow. Can provide LP of prior band for reference. Open to alter ego cover project as well.

Took a break--kids, day job, etc. Have about a dozen strong new tunes written, some in can (tracking, few dubs), some more on me demo, some yet to demo but ready for those who don't need a demo before working. More songs o follow. Own rights to 15 songs on LP and 4 in the can, and which can be re-recorded. Varied styles--see influences--tend to get back largely to melodic blues-based yet novel rock n roll, with exceptions such as country elements and various beats/patterns. No "pop." Sounds from acoustic rock to the Zep-AC/DC-Nirvana edge. No "heavy metal." Open to co-writing (if it clicks), and happy for others to share on lead vox.

Pro experience required. Serious, but not life-consuming. Rejuvenated desire to create art with the right people. Have rehearsal space with sound damping, extra amps, drums, PA, etc. Looking to work up material, record and gig. Realistically planning to kick off workups in April and record in fall. Suggest those interested take an LP and check out general sound/styles of work, yet of course sounds morph over time. Let it rock.
