ABOUT

I am NOT looking to join a band/project unless I'm paid for my time. However if you are a drummer looking for a band:

West of Neptune is a heavy, yet expressive, band, formed in 2017 between five musicians - AlonA (vocals), Mica (guitar), Iain (guitar), and Stavros (bass). Developing a sound that fully incorporates even the most extreme aspects of each member’s influences, West of Neptune sets itself apart by creating sonic amalgamations that sound completely harmonious.

We are looking for a drummer that is skilled and dedicated to their craft who is:

- Open to exploring different styles (we’re interested in exploring with more electronic textures with synths and drum machines)
- Comfortable playing with odd time signatures (5/4, 7/8, 6/8 etc…)
- Able to play sudden changes in a song.
- Must be able to improvise/jam
- Ability to drive a car/van is a huge plus

We have a 7 piece drum set at our practice space, just be sure to bring your own snare, kick pedal and cymbals for your audition

Must be willing to practice at least once every two weeks and learn music in a timely fashion

Contact us if you're interested or have any questions, or share this with someone you know who would be interested.
Provide recordings of yourself playing (e.g., videos, audio, previous bands/projects)

We will want to talk over zoom before meeting in person.
We require masks during practice.
