SEEKINGRhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar.
I currently have a modern Progressive Rock Band, and our guitar player has resigned. This band already has one album out with international sales, reviews, and attention, and is currently in the studio writing/recording our second album. We are already booked for a well-known international festival for May of 2016. We have a hard-working manager and veteran music business attorney on our team, working to book more gigs and grow the band as a business in 2016.
Guitar Player needed for modern Progressive Rock band. We perform original material, as well as occasionally cover the classic progressive rock bands of the 70's and 80's.
Influences include: Steven Wilson, Porcupine Tree, Haken, Genesis, Gentle Giant, King Crimson, ELP, Pink Floyd, UK, Yes, Jethro Tull, Led Zeppelin, ELO, Kansas and Rush.
This is a serious project with real expectations of touring and playing at the Prog Rock Festivals throughout the world.
We have strong connections in the music industry, and are already working with those connections to be successful.
You must be able to handle writing/recording original guitar parts, both rhythm and lead. We have three strong vocalists already, but a fourth vocal (you) would be good, if possible. When doing any cover tunes, you must be able to play all the guitar parts dictated by the original recordings; this may include acoustic guitar, electric guitar, 12-string acoustic, etc.
We write/record in our own studio and rehearse in Dutchess County NY near Rhinebeck at a venue with a stage and sound system.
You must have the ability to work well with other people.
No drug, alcohol, high drama, or anger management issues will be tolerated. Serious inquiries only, please.

Here's my personal bio, taken from this page:
Yamaha and Muse Receptor sponsored artist Andrew Colyer has played piano, keyboards, trumpet, and sung across the United States, Canada, and Japan, including three times at Carnegie Hall. His classical training includes the Juilliard School, and his teaching lineage places him five steps down from Beethoven.
Rock/pop experience includes performing and collaborating with
Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel, King Crimson), Jon Anderson (YES), The Tubes, Ryche Chlanda (Fireballet, Renaissance), Max Flyer (CBS Records), 10th Planet, the Prog Rock Orchestra, Circuline, and the Progressive Rock Tribute Band, Downing Grey.
With regards to jazz and big band music, Andrew has performed with Clark Terry, Louis Bellson, Marvin Stamm, Nick Brignola, and the Avalon Jazz Quartet.
Andrew has composed original music for commercial radio and video, and for Indie film producer Luke Franek’s award-winning film, “Tingle”.
You might have seen Andrew singing and playing keyboards on the “iProg – Your Classic Prog Playlist on Shuffle” tour with Downing Grey during 2013. Andrew recently performed on keyboards/vocals with the Prog Rock Orchestra on the Moody Blues Cruise and the Yes-headlining Cruise To The Edge in April 2014. One of the core members of the modern progressive rock band Circuline, Andrew has been performing live on keyboards/vocals with Circuline since November 2014, and composed/performed on Circuline’s debut album (released April 2015). Andrew is currently scheduled to perform live at the 2016 NAMM convention in Anaheim, California.
In addition to group collaborations, Andrew also composes and performs his own original music. His first CD, Gift to Gaia (co-produced with Lilli Farrell for Japanese popular artist Kirk Reinert), toured Japan and sold over 3000 copies.
