ABOUT

My email is ydwyrdyshlyn@gmail.com

Looking to form a band that wants to get ambitious or just rock and roll. Anyone who wants to jam/have a good time is welcome.

I enjoy nearly all kinds of music, though my favorite genres would be Blues Rock, Southern Rock, Rhythm & Blues, Hair Metal, Thrash Metal, Folk Metal, and Celtic Punk. I am completely open to experimenting with different genres and hybrids as well.

I am also aware of "looking the part" as well as proper stage presence and style.
