I am a bass guitarist and vocalist. I am also a multi-instrumentalist in that I record my own solo albums. Highlights: I was the bassist and lead singer of the vintage progressive metal band DEELER from St. Louis, MO. I was the bassist and co-lead-singer of the cover band "Reuben Kincade" back in the '90's. I played guitar in "My 2 Planets" for about 2.5 years. I have cut albums with Deeler and My 2 Planets, and have released solo albums as Joe Weir. Presently Deeler has had a big surge of interest internationally due to a re-issue of our albums by a European label, and are planning to reunite to cut a live album for release. I am looking for a vocalist to replace me on lead vocals for the project so I can concentrate on bass and do backup vocals.
