SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Drums, Other Percussion, Keyboard, Piano.
I am an experienced multi-genre musician/bassist with studio and live experience. I'm looking to join/start a band with people who have a passion for writing and performing music. I would like this partnership to have a strong focus on the “creative expression” part of the process and having fun.
I have a pretty sweet day job, but I am equally devoted to music. I am open to any genre with an emphasis on writing original music, although I am not opposed to throwing in covers especially if they are adapted/mashed. If you’re interested, let’s start a conversation. I can be reached at jayof9 at hot ma il dot com.
