ABOUT

My name is Bob Tippen but my friends call me Logan or Pony..I'm very new in town..I know no one here....I'm very easygoing fun and friendly,no ego,easy to get along with,I'm always on time,I never drink onstage...I want to have fun and maybe make some cash on weekends.I'm just looking to sing onstage again...lead or backup is fine for me......i like singing bluesy hard classic rock..and have about a 3 octave range on most days~~(-;baritone thru tenor..
Lately many think singing country would be a good fit for me at this age..
if you want to know my range> I can sing "lights" walks like a lady "anyway you want it",pretty damn well..Pat Travers"bad luck and trouble" "Fire" by the cult "The Letter" by Joe Cocker revamped for me is one of my best and a great dance song>>zepplin(dazed and confused dancin days) to alice in chains(i don't remember(app pro po) and man in the box)..David Bowie( my version of sorrow) to Whitesnake(fool for your lovin.no more
the doors( a hopped up dance remix of "Hello I love you") to marshall tucker(can't you see and take the highway)
never been to Spain>3 dog nite..Little sister>>elvis...anything by The Beatles,Bon Jovi,the Doors,Thin Lizzy
I want to sing for a tight dance band

I have my own voice...I would appreciate it if you would send me a short songlist of what you play and then actually go back to the 2nd paragraph and read the songs I mentioned and know a few of my songs before contacting me for an audition..I have a raspy voice some days I AM NOT A SCREAMER!..I will NOT sing anything by AC/DC,the stones(Jagger is a sh*t singer),pink floyd,the cars,bruce springsteen...songs like "mustang sally" >(sorry I hate that song) or any song that has a five part harmony and only 1 singer>>me! I can sing country very well but know few of their songs by heart.
anyway
I have all or part of the lyrics for 7 original songs and can sing most of the melodys and chorus>>all would either fit rock/country/or even contemporary christian rock markets.Besides wanting to front a working band again..I am seeking composer to score and help me orchestrate my songs
I am a "torchsinger" >> a rock crooner if you will
