SEEKING

Band to Join, Vocalist, Vocalist - Tenor, Bass Guitar, Keyboard, Background Singer.

ABOUT

I am looking for a vocalist and maybe one other utility player to form a band. The sound I'm looking for is a mix of a modern rock sound (with some traditional influences) and new wave - something close to dreampop.

My main instrument is guitar, but I have been playing violin & keys since I was young. I can capably play bass guitar and mandolin. As far as vocals are concerned, I can do back up, but probably not lead vocals.

Stationed on the North-Northeast side of Austin, solid day job, reliable transportation.

Side note: it is 2020. There is no excuse for not having at least one photo and a soundclip.

Influences

I know that this section has the potential to read like a book, so I'll just keep this list down to my biggest influences and names that are easily recognizable: the Kills, John Frusciante, QOTSA, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Minus the Bear, the Mars Volta, Velvet Underground, and Led Zeppelin… Also, almost anything new wave, from '78-'83: B-52's, Talking Heads, Joy Division, New Order, Gary Numan, David Bowie, the Smiths, and Billy Idol.

Local bands I'm listening to: TC Superstar, Sash & the Valentines, Why Bonnie, Manifest Destiny's Child, Spirit Ghost, and the Irons.

EQUIPMENT

I have a solid set-up for doing live shows mic'ed or unmic'ed. I also have a reliable set-up for recording vocals, keys, and stringed instruments at home... basically everything except live drums, but I use a drum machine anyways.
