Band to Join, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard, Background Singer.


I am 32 years old, and I have played violin since I was 9, and picked up the guitar about 14 years ago. I am also capable of playing mandolin and bass guitar, and can do back up vocals. I also have put a great deal into practicing my songwriting. I am looking for either a band to join or other musicians to start a band from the ground up. The sound I'm looking for is a mix of a modern rock sound with some traditional influences, something close to dreampop. gregory.allen.michael at g-mail...

Just moved down to Texas from Chicago. I'm up in the northwest corner of Austin, near Anderson Mill.

Side note: it is 2016. There is no excuse for not having at least one photo and a soundclip.
