ABOUT

Hi, I'm Eric. I play guitar, have an AA degree in music composition & theory. I also have a little bit of marketing and touring experience that includes Warped Tour & SXSW, and I've recorded 3 EPs w/my last 2 bands, so I'm familiar & comfortable with practice, recording & live performance.

I'm looking to form a 3-5 piece band that plays alternative rock & post-hardcore with some other styles mixed in. I'm looking for musicians who are able & willing to practice at least once a week, write & record as a team, and play shows without issue or difficulty. I'd like to work with people who are open-minded, easy going & able to contribute without any drama or excuses. Ideally, I'd like to form a band from the ground-up, but I have no objections to joining the right existing project either.

I'm also looking for people who have some experience with the creative & business parts of being in a band, as well as a professional attitude and modest/realistic expectations. Ideal age range: 28-38-ish.

Must also have:
-Working gear
-Reliable transportation & employment
-Previous experience (recordings, photo/video, etc.)
