Hi there! I'm a vocalist/songwriter/guitarist, and I'm hoping to meet some folks in the Providence area to develop a new project together. I would describe the target sound as a vocal harmony-driven acoustic alternative / alt rock with occasional prog (e.g., odd meter) and world music (e.g., Middle Eastern, klezmer) elements.

I'd love to connect with folks who play any (or some combination) of the following instruments: bass, clarinet, violin, viola, cello, (lead) guitar (or really any other solo instruments). The songs have tons of space for a lead instrumentalist to get creative and really leave their mark. And because many of the songs feature multi-part vocal harmonies, I'm really hoping to meet folks who enjoy singing, too!

I'd also love to find a drummer who enjoys world music, occasional odd meter / odd time signatures, abrupt dynamic / tempo changes, and experimenting with different textures. Having an interest in/ability to incorporate electronic elements, samples etc would be fantastic, too! Again, an interest in singing would be wonderful, too!

At this point, I'm just looking for some like-minded folks to have fun making music together. I'm in my mid-30s (with a family, full-time job, etc), so my immediate goals are pretty modest - I'd like to write and record, work toward playing some local shows, and then just see where things lead from there.

So if the sound/vibe I've described seems like something that might overlap with your interests, I'd love to hear from you!
