ABOUT

POST-PUNK: Seeking Bass - Keys - Drum - Throat: Male or Female

SPECIFICS: Age, gender and/or experience not an issue.

MISSION: To create a distinctly different sound with contributions from each member.

GOAL: To enter studio within 3 months of 06/01/2021, record/produce a 4 song EP on our own label, release said EP via 3rd party distribution company (we retain all rights and royalties) and lastly, to appear on Band in Seattle before year's end.

BACK END: "Remedy" and "Coven" were part of a sketch project called Trauma Doll with Sirena Ross (Lyrics/Throat) and me (Guitar/Bass/Keys/Drum/Tapes/Everything Else) active Fall 2017 through November 2018, when it ceased to be.

SO: The enclosed songs/snippets are just noodlings of mine, but just inclued to give an idea of my musical mind set. I did not rattle off a huge list of bands/influences so as to not taint your views (though there are hints in my home DVD pic) so do NOT feel your ideas have to mesh with mine; I’m interested in working with any ideas you’re working on, in hopes of becoming a cohesive unit. Thanks for the listens, and good luck to us - - this is going to get done regardless; peace.

P.S.: Pic 10 is of Sirena bringing the house down at a 2017 show, and Pic 11 is her in character as "The Wraith" in our 2017 film called "No Room" which placed in the 2017 Tacoma International Film Festival. Also if it's of any salt, I was "adopted" by local Cleveland bands Pere Ubu and Human Switchboard Summer 1977 (I was the only Black punk in town - - 16 years old and a hella badass ;) . . . and I never looked back, lol. Met a lot of bands they opened for over the next 3 years (Patti Smith, Talking Heads, Television and The Pop Group among them); now it's time for me/us to persevere and pass the torch, figuratively speaking. Looking forward to hearing from fellow collaborators.
