ABOUT

Guitarist (lead and rhythm) for the recording and touring band Couch Professor. Looking for musicians for a side project either long or short term - to play aggressive post punk music as well as some mellower indie rock. Very experienced guitarist. I’ve been in bands signed with indie labels, recording in studios, toured, played festivals and shows in all kinds of venues. I’m looking to put together or join another band to record and perform here in the DC area and possibly tour. I am the primary songwriter in Couch Professor and wrote 10 of the 12 tracks released on our eponymously titles debut album.

We are looking for a new lead singer who can also play guitar and/ or bass guitar. The individual we are looking for will be expected to make weekly rehearsals at our rehearsal location in Falls Church, meet outside of rehearsal to co-write and arrange new material as necessary, play out once or twice a month and meet in the studio to record our next album.
