SEEKINGBand to Join, Rhythm Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Keyboard, Background Singer.
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 (think The Blasters higher energy stuff or X),
Grunge covers ( I have a drummer interested in this as a project),
Complex rock covers 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 me 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..
