ABOUT

Hello all! My name is Matthew and i'm looking to start a band! I am a solo artist at the moment but i really want to have a band. i have tried starting a band before, but the others were unmotivated and not very confident. so! I have a dream to start a band with some creative, confident, and talented musicians! Now I myself am inspired by many different genres of music, (Rock, oldies, metal, folk, alternative, Hardcore, classical, Punk, electronic, hip-hop, world music and even rap.) and as crazy as it may sound, my goal is to create a band that has the capacity to cross genres and experiment with sound! of course we can start with what we know and just have fun from there!!

ABOUT MYSELF: i have been a serious musician for 2 solid years now, and in this time I've pushed myself to play guitar, piano, bass, drums, as well as other instruments. now i don't claim to be the best at any given one, but i know my way around enough to start creating! i love learning about what makes a certain song sound a certain way(whether it be pop, funk, jazz, rock n' roll) and taking those properties to create my own take on the style! I currently have over 30+ written songs and they're still coming. i perform weekly around the riverside open mic scene singing my songs, so i am quite comfortable performing! i just desire to do the best i can when it comes to music, and hopefully you do as well! i have 2 demos of my songs up on sound cloud for your listening pleasure, so you can get idea of what my abilities are.
