ABOUT

Guitarist/singer seeking collaborators for duo or small ensemble. The sound would be an eclectic mix inspired by 60s pop/girl-groups/Baroque-pop, 70s soft-rock/power-pop, 80s new wave/post-punk/jangle-pop, and some 90s indie. Heavy on jangly guitars with male/female harmonies and shared vocals.

Ability/experience are less important than common ground on musical influences. DIY/minimalist approaches to drums/percussion encouraged - think Moe Tucker/Bobby Gillespie or just banging on trashcans or tambourine. I prefer to start small as a duo or trio initially and expand as needed. If you play an instrument, great! but not necessary (I play bass and other instruments too). During Covid, we would start remotely or outdoors with social-distancing precautions and masks. Covers are fun to start and establish chemistry and would eventually like to try to co-write originals. I have early outlines of songs but need help with lyrics - can share on request. I also play flute and oboe and am open to joining established bands where this would add value.
