ABOUT

My keyboard player and I are looking for a drummer, a bassist, and singer with a lot of soul. We have plenty of songs that need these elements and are awaiting your creative freedom! We are an old school style prog rock band with a heavy Pink Floyd influence. We have our own full studio with any piece of equipment you could ever imagine to use at your leisure which also includes recording equipment and a drum set. Both me and my keyboard player have been playing since we were very very young. As a matter of fact we’ve both been in bands prior to this one. We just never had the chance to fully express our own creativity until now. Neither of us have any sort of ego complex at all either, we are open to all ideas for song writing or whatever you may bring to the table. I guess you can say we are both very easy going. Let me tell you a little bit about myself as well due to the fact that we need like minded people. I went to a trade school to become a diesel mechanic cause I've worked on cars and trucks my whole life but I dont wanna do this for the rest of my life. In the recent years I've realized that I wont be satisfied with my life unless I'm doing something with music. My job gives me amazing benefits and I make a great salary that I could comfortably live on the rest of my life. I'd trade it all just to make this shit happen. That's how committed I am to this. Writing music is what I live for. Not busting my knuckles every day at work to the point to where my hands are too sore to play. The music produced now a days lacks the soul and the raw emotion that drove the youth back in the day. There are so many songs from back then that are timeless and still popular now. How many songs are being produced now a days that are gonna have the same effect as those songs did? None. Let's change that.
