Band to Join, Vocalist, Bass Guitar, Drums, Other Percussion, Keyboard, Other, Electronic Music.


I write whatever comes to mind and although based in metal, I'm a chameleon in art and music. I was in a traveling rock band for ten years and while I think it would be cool to join another band, my experience in this area has taught me that it is safer and less frustrating to simply work over e-mail or just give people songs to do as they will. This also depends on the situation and I am not saying I refuse to play live again. I work for a gaming company and tend to focus on designing and travel quite a bit so it also takes me some time to finish tunes at certain points in the year. Just a fair warning. As for physical instruments, I main with guitar. I like to keep riffs relatively simple since I was electrocuted, I'm not as quick as I used to be, so solos are also more down tempo. Not a slug, just can't noodle as easily. I also play erhu and some weird instruments I've made. There's a song for pretty much every genre in my bank of over 450 songs, a couple dozen of the better ones are available online while the rest have been retired to an archive of crap ideas. Hit me up if you're bored, we can sort something out. My name is Troy Iktomi-Coots, yeah, two last names, but if you find me on face book, I only check that once every couple months and will be deleting it soon enough. Best of luck to you and thank you for reading all this.
