Band to Join, Bass Guitar, Drums.

ABOUT

Singer songwriter based in Queens. I feel I've reached a certain experience level to be more specific about the type of situation I am looking for:

I want to work with an ace guitarist, bass player, and drummer to form a band. I want to be specific about what I can offer: I'm a songwriter. I'll come into this situation with more than fifty songs ready to be arranged into a full band context. In addition, I'll be able to write songs from collaborating on chords and melodies with my bandmates. I've noticed when I've gotten together with other musicians over the years, there's been confusion over what we're doing: there aren't any defined roles heading into the situation. It has kinda resulted in disappointing jam sessions that lack chemistry. I'm a songwriter. I'm not a great guitar player, I'm not going to be able to translate notes from keys to guitar, or basically be able to communicate effectively solely as an instrumentalist. That's not my skill-set. If you are a skilled guitarist looking to work with a writer to put something together from a band standpoint, then we could be a match. Things can be put together from there. All this being said: I'm not opposed to working with another songwriter in the group. Plenty of great bands have multiple writers and singers. I just want to be clear about what I'm capable of doing. I want expectations to be understood before we get together. I'm uploading more of my original songs onto here after writing this. This will give you an idea about my writing style and my voice. If you don't dig it, then no problem! We won't work together. I want to work with people I am on the same page with. Who know (and like) what I'm bringing to the table as a songwriter. Thanks for reading.
