ABOUT

I just recently moved to the South Jersey Shore area near Atlantic City about 2 months ago and have enough equipment to run a full studio. I am looking for musicians to play, have fun, and make money with. I have a ton of experience with anything involving sound and can already get gigs in the area. I've done everything from just simply making announcements at a soccer game to full blown weddings where I was the DJ, band, photographer, and photo-booth guy all in one. I started playing and renting out small venues when I was young to now touring all over the country. I suppose little by little along the way I acquired enough instruments and gear to run a studio. Well here I am! I'm open to play and provide any instrument that a traditional group would need. I am a guitarist and bassist first. I have played drums and keys in bands before but they were not on a touring level. I would prefer the age group to be around 20-40 but that doesn't really matter to me. I am here to basically start a business, band, and a series of connections between local artists. A music scene starts by all working together! Now before you fear that I am too old, well I just turned 31 myself so I am getting there! Anyway come use me for free studio time! At the moment it is under construction but should be up and running soon. I am able to practice and record inside the house for now however to help suplement that void. Rest assure that all of the instruments and audio gear is available. Everything is of professional level. Guitars, keyboards, drums, some microphones, pre amps & bass guitars are all in the $2,000 range or more. The amps range from $,1,000-$4,000. You need to check it out and we need to link up for something! We must all use each other and hopefully I can help anyone searching out there to get things moving on all fronts. I have great business sense as well and have been running multiple self propelled businesses, even if they do not pretain to music. Call, text, or email me!
Thanks!

Sincerely,

David Hughes

I love anything soundtrack style! Think like the ocean 11/12/13 soundtracks! If you haven't heard of some of these bands I've listed, I urge you to check them out! And always start from the beginning of the bands discography.

All of the tracks I have posted on here were mostly recorded live and are all spontaneous frestyles as I was already in the moving process, so some are recorded on an iPhone or in a half broken down home studio. My computer crashed so this is all I have at the moment that I can post, although I have a ton of more ideas and live performances recorded on various formats.

Tracks 1-2 are all me
Tracks 3-4 are me on bass
Tracks 5-7 are me on guitar
Tracks 8-9 are me on bass
Tracks 10-11 are me on guitar
