SEEKINGVocalist, Vocalist - Tenor, Violin, Trumpet, Saxophone, Piano, Background Singer, Trombone.
My name is Duane. I began taking lessons on the guitar at age 10, I started putting bands together at age 12, playing dances, parties and some weddings at age 15. Then my whole focus became on writing commercial quality original rock music. I began creating songs at the age of 4. Had my first songbook at 13 and 250 songs in it by age 15. During one 3 year period, I wrote 180 songs, self published 12-CDs.
Now I'm interested in playing a variety of music with the ever evolving band project. Southern Rock, Classic Rock, blues rock.
I also like harmonizing vocally. Although I'm mostly a bass singer.
Easy to get along with. Professional skill level.
