SEEKING

Band to Join, Vocalist - Soprano, Lead Guitar, Drums, Bass Guitar.

ABOUT

I am primarily a MIDI keyboard guy, who can play rhythm 12 string acoustic/electric guitar. I can sing strong backups or an occassional lead if it's a ballard. Originally from Massachusetts, I played in many top-40 cover rock bands in my time as a keyboard player. My forte has always been my originals, and I have a few publishing contracts under my belt. I learned how to record and produce along the way. Would like to hookup with a band or musicians, who would like to put one together to playout on the weekends again. Living out here in the boonies makes it a challenge to find other musicians close by. Do you live out my way and can you rehearse at my place or yours? My only criteria is that it sounds good in the end, and everyone has a great time. I am also seeking a kicking female lead vocalist to sing my originals as an additional side project.
To contact me, send me an e-mail at finleos.c o m with your phone and way to contact you, and I will. Please put "musician" in the subject line so I will know what it is for.

Also, if you listen to the original songs I uploaded to the playlist, please note that I wrote and played all the parts on keyboards, acoustic/electric guitar, right down to writing the digital drum parts, I used no stock drum patterns and no sampled loops. Every part was played by me using no other musicians, then MIDI produced using Cakewalk to the final mix and me singing the vocal reference tracks. As far as my vocals, I always considered myself a backup vocal due to my low baritone range, but I can sing some leads like on pop ballards or slow tempo tunes.
