SEEKINGVocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Drums, Cello.
Songwriter/guitarist/bassist looking to form or join an indie, punk, garage, or folk rock band (no cover bands or classic rock). I have lots of connections to get shows (and possibly tours) booked as well as label contacts.
About me: I founded a small indie label that has released albums on vinyl and CD. I've booked Hopscotch parties and songwriter showcases and ran an indie music radio show /podcast for a year.
I have experience as a live sound tech, recording tech, musician, songwriter, stage manager for a Grammy winning artist, and band photographer. I have twenty years of experience songwriting and performing rock, acoustic, indie pop, and electronic music.
I play guitar, bass, some keyboard, and I have experience in drum programming, studio recording, mixing and live sound reinforcement. I have played in a number of bands and musicians over the years, professional and those playing for fun.
Today I primary focus on working in my home studio, continuing the process of learning recording, songwriting, and instrumentation techniques. I have recorded and produced released for myself and other artists which you can find on Spotify including Cicada Love and George Banda.
I am interested in recording singer-songwriters; either your original work or collaborating on songwriter. Especially interested in any artists that would like additional instrumentation on their songs (bass, guitar, keyboard).
Very much interested in co-writing in the modern styles of artists listed under "Influences."
My preferred genres are indie pop, indie rock, punk/garage, folk, and acoustic singer-songwriter.

Ides of March (2014 demo)
Ides of March (2014 demo)First demo this year featuring acoustic guitar. Also features electric guitar, bass, synth, doing drum programing, and mixing. Working on lyrics and need a vocalist and the final step will be getting it mastered. I have 3 full demo songs so far this year.
All Day (demo)
All Day (demo)Another new demo track that I've recorded to experiment and test with my new home recording studio set up.
New 2014 Demo
New 2014 DemoA simple new song I threw together over the past couple of days to refresh myself on recording, since I haven't recorded anything since early 2012. I didn't have my bass with me so I tracked a synth bass as a placeholder, and didn't get too much into eq or mastering with the track. I'm going to need a singer for vocal tracks on some songs this year, let me know if you're interested.
