Band to Join, Rhythm Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Keyboard, Background Singer.

ABOUT

While I will not decline a good opportunity and fit, I am primarily interested in a few types of musical ventures at this time:.

A keyboard or( more likely) acoustic guitar based cover duo/trio for small intimate venues (mostly doing stripped down covers - things like Chris Cornell's solo acoustic live recordings),

A Rockabilly-ish/Punkabilly-ish driving rock band (think The Blasters higher energy stuff or X),

Grunge cover band( I have a drummer interested in this as a project),

Early to mid-eighties alt-rock/new wave cover band, (R.EM., U2, INXS, Psychedelic Furs, Modern English, Duran Duran, Roxy Music, Adam Ant, Midnight Oil, etc...)

Complex rock cover band primarily from the 90's and 00's think progressive and/or industrial (Tool, System of a Down, Rammstein, Rage Against the Machine, Living Color, Nine Inch Nails), and/or an

Original industrial/symphonic/progressive Metal band featuring Baritone and Tenor vocals. Something along the line of a mashup of the bands above with Nightwish thrown into the mix.

More about me if you have any interest....

I am a natural Baritone with a range up through most tenors.

I am currently teaching myself guitar and attempting to learn Bass (properly this time).

I dabble in hand percussion and harmonica. I own (but have not played in decades) a trombone.

NOTE: I will be adding audio soon, I need to clean up my Sound Cloud account into something usable. If you are desperate to hear my voice and do not mind clips of karaoke, recorded on a telephone, without editing, and with my having no control over the mix, you can hear me there under the user michael-breman .

NOTE: I should only be considered as a vocalist for any practical venture. It has been too long and/or I am too new to the instruments to be ready for performance..
