ABOUT

43 year old guitarist/singer/songwriter from New Orleans.

Seeking higher intermediate-advanced level musicians for a new alternative / psychedelic / rock / world mix type project (moderate volume / not high).

Preferably someone who’s eclectic and into/or interested in Spirituality / Eastern thought / Higher Consciousness and in the 30-55 age range. Not interested in anyone who drinks excessively or into ANY drugs (NOT INTERESTED in 420!).

Someone who has a good vibe, mindful, balanced and easy going with a sense of humor. You preferably have other things going on, this project is not your big end all but it’s still an important part of you.

Looking to practice typically 1x a week on the weekend (Friday early evenings currently but open) for about 2 hours and gig out 1x about every month or every other month or so at select gigs.

Sort of going for a contemporary style version of The Doors mixed with new modern touches (such as Thievery Corporation & Tommy Guerrero, etc.).

Also incorporating some synth, the Native American flute and spoken word/ poetry for a few songs. May include a few guest exotic instrumentalists (array mbira, didgeridoo, etc.) to sit in on occasion later on.

Have great songs, venue contacts, & creative new ideas ready to roll & open to collaborate with the right musicians. Please contact me if you are interested~ johnnyinfinite (at) live (dot) com
