ABOUT

Local Singer/Songwriter looking for Band (Roanoke)
I'm a local Indie-Rock Singer/Songwriter that's looking for the final pieces to my backing band. I write, play, and sing all original music, and am seriously pursuing professional musicians available and willing to tour. I play acoustic and electric (rhythm & lead), and I currently have a keyboard player. I need a DRUMMER, BASSIST, and LEAD GUITARIST. As soon as band is formed, we'll tighten up the material, and immediately go into the studio to record a 4-5 track EP. Then we'll play out vigorously. I have a manager, and am looking for a SERIOUS GROUP of musicians that are fully devoted to ride this out with me. Send a clip of your playing if interested, and we can then meet to go over specifics, and to see if we mesh. Thanks
