ABOUT

Songwriter looking to create a band with a sound based on collaboration. I can write (what I think are) very catchy 70's style hooks and (what I think are) relevant/cerebral lyrics. I'm used to being in two piece bands, but open to more members. I am possibly interested in being a composer for the band and possibly not necessarily be the one on the stage.
I'm from Detroit and used to be involved in the garage scene and electronic music scene.
I've never recorded a professionally, made a demo, and the only gigs I played were a few shows over 14 years ago.
