I'm hosting online and live auditions, and since it is genre-fluid, combining with specific rock/metal genres/subgenres, it's now known as Alternative Crossover. BDSM/LGBTIQQA friendly, and the usual main genres/subgenres are Hard Rock, Metal, Nu-Metal, Punk, Queercore, Post Hardcore, Post Grunge, Grunge, GrungeGoth, Gothic Rock/Metal, Industrial, Electronica-dubstep rock, acoustic rock, Rap/Rock-Metal, Pop Punk, Goth Pop, Death Metal, Metalcore, Melodic Death Metal and Symphonic Rock/Metal, thus inspiring the new genre name: Alternative Crossover.

All online auditions must be sent via e-mail with attached MP3 copies of your best original and cover songs (two covers and two originals), a email style typed letter in several paragraphs or more containing your musical abilities/talents, what got you into music (short bio), a photo attachment of yourself so I know who I'm talking to, and if possible, a MP4 file of your performance (live, studio, open mic performance, etc.) attached to the email, and a brief paragraph of why you wish to join my project, and end it with accessible contact information to be informed whether you're approved or rejected.

All live auditions (for those in the area and/or able to travel) will be held at various venues at various dates, and auditions ends on December 2014 or January 2015, depending if we've found the musicians we seek. I'm currently recording my new album with hired studio musicians at a local Colorado studio facility, but release date is TBD. So you still got a chance.

All genders/ages welcome, from 18 and up (even old people still fit and healthy can rock out with me). For more details, email me at christinataylormusic or contact my band managers directly at dysfunctionalstudioscolorado for more on dates, venues, etc.

Blessed Be,
Christina Autumn Taylor.
