Kenny Hyde


Bass Guitar, Lead Guitar, Drums.


I am a songwriter interested in starting an all original project in the metal/ hard rock genre . I am looking for other creative people interested in writing our own songs . I have a bunch of songs already and many more incomplete songs that I am still working on . Im specifically looking for a guitar wizard lead player and a drummer . I think I found the singer and bassist so far . But I'm not keeping anyone permanently until I am sure they will be in it for the long haul and have the chemistry necessary to keep a band together .
I was recently in the band Mechanism of Deception . I was a founding member and wrote a majority of the music they play . I no longer see eye to eye with them though since it is so hard to see eye to eye with someone who puts themselves on a giant pedestal . We did a few great gigs and I got my feet wet and the fever to get out and do it again . I write very often and have had much needed inspiration lately .
So I am looking for no bullsh*t , no ego , good people to play with . I am hoping to get out and gig asap with all original music . No or maybe very few covers . Personally I prefer not to do any covers . Attitude , commitment , and ability are my three biggest concerns . But I prefer talented songwriters over skilled technical musicians any day .
I have rehearsal space in New Hartford ,CT. If you are interested please email me with some of your info and contact information . Your influences and accomplishments musically . I will then send you some material to try out with . It will be my original music which I would like you to add your part too . Writing your drum part or leads for each song i present you . When your ready we can meet and see how things go .
I wasted 3 years of my life writing music in a band with assholes , I will not make this mistake again . We have to be able to be get along and have the chemistry necessary to write great songs and perform awesome shows. It has to be fun first and foremost . I expect everyone who is interested to have their own equipment for rehearsal and gigging .
I have made 100s of friends and contacts through my last band that can help us get out and playing shows very soon . So I am looking for people committed to doing just that . Writing is real cool , performing your own music and having an audience dig it is way cooler .
