Band to Join, Bass Guitar, Drums.

ABOUT

My name's James Petersen, online I play under the stage name "Nico Foxx". I'm 19, and have been playing guitar since I was around 10 or 11. I've been writing, recording, and mixing songs and putting them up on various social media accounts everywhere this past year. They're nothing amazing, but I'm getting better I think. My main thing is vocals and acoustic guitar, but for my songs I've been also using electric/lead, bass, and even a bit of drums (I am no drummer though, believe me). I'd love to find at least a bass player and a drummer willing to play and possibly create music with me. I know it'll be tricky finding anyone around me in Illinois with somewhat similar taste as me, but it'd be nice. I'd be willing to move somewhere too if needed to

Influences

Nirvana and Kurt Cobain by far is my biggest influence, but I've also been influenced by:

Radiohead The Beatles
Gorillaz Green Day
Dye Smashing Pumpkins
Pink Floyd Black Flag
Sleep Party People Dead Kennedys
The Smiths My Morning Jacket
Tame Impala Sex Pistols
Pearl Jam The Locust
The Warlocks Cigarettes After Sex
Slowdive Jesus on Heroine
Weird Owl David Bowie
Neutral Milk Hotel Dead Meadow
Carpenters The Mountain Goats
OFF! Blink 182

Kinda all over the place but you get the idea. A lot of 90s alternative but also some psychedelic pop/rock, grunge, hardcore punk, a bit of shoegaze and dream pop, and some acoustic stuff. I like really depressing and slow songs really, it's what I have the most passion for. Sappy love songs are pretty too though
