Send an e-mail to daj (at) davidandrewjohnson dot com to say hi and say you saw me on bandmix in the subject line.

I'm a multi instrumentalist, front man, side gun, studio rat, producer, engineer and play all forms of music. My original songs have been described as "REM crashed into the Allman Brothers tour bus outside of a beach bar," by one reviewer - southern style rock and blues out of Memphis (where I recorded my last album at Sun Studio) heavily influenced by Big Star, and no Skynyrd. I also play power pop and grunge rock and classic rock frequently. In the studio, I do a lot of electronic music and love working with synthesizers and sampling - my latest project is very Pink Floyd influenced. I frequently play solo acoustic guitar and am a live looper.

I'm looking for bands to jam with and gig, and putting together a band to back my latest compositions and help bring them together - I need a drummer. You have to be cool, the vibe and the hang is arguably more important than the skill - but you do need to have chops. I will record and produce any band or artist in my home studio.
