ABOUT

About the recordings: These are a bunch of tracks of mixed style (all within rock/alt) just to give examples: some are new some are old, some are polished and some are extremely rough. Most of these are demos rather than finished products.

I’m a guitarist/producer/songwriter looking for other musicians to work with.
I’m mainly interested in writing songs and recording, but am open to playing gigs if all goes well.
Finding a singer +/- songwriter is a priority. Open to male or female. Not into screaming. More interested in something melodic.
Would love to find another guitarist or bassist or drummer to play with too.

Some new very rough ideas I'm working on

Very old songs with a female vocalist - for something a little different

I have more new stuff in various stages of development that I can send your way. I did some electronic stuff and hip hop beats too in years past... so I'm up for basically anything except country or anything involving screaming, and I wouldn't claim to be any good at jazz, though I like it.

Just looking for people who will mesh well musically. I'd like to jam, write songs, record, and if we have something good then maybe gig. I have a real job and if something unexpectedly amazing happened, I could consider something more serious - but would cross that bridge if and when...
Also open to joining a formed band if there's a good match – but not interested in cover bands.
