ABOUT

I'm Izzy and I'm 15. I have been playing playing acoustic guitar and singing since I was 8 but later switched over to electric guitar and have been really serious about lead guitar for the past 2 years. I have lots of experience playing gigs with The Music Factory school of music in Costa Mesa (a school of rock type thing) and they have been encouraging me to play with better, real musicians as I'm getting older, more comitted, and more talented. I recently recorded lead guitar for the metal band Kiloton's latest album "First Blood" which is linked on my profile. However, I do not not enjoy playing metal as much anymore and I am looking to branch out and find another local band to play with. Prefferably a punk band or hard rock band. I consider myself a lead guitarist but would be down to play rhythm too and I could also do backgroud vocals if needed. I would try my best to prioritize the band but keep in mind that I'm a high school student living with my parents so how how often I am available will vary.
