ABOUT

I am a 28 y/o guitarist/bassist/vocalist. I have been playing for over 10 years and have played with various friends on and off over the years, but never really anything properly structured or dedicated. I have, however, written many songs over those years.

So, I would love to try and meet up with others with similar musical inclinations to try and jam, work on my songs, and do other stuff too be it originals, songs other members bring in, or new stuff that we collaborate on.

Fair warning though, I just started a new business and have a baby daughter, so I don't have a whole lot of time, but I could definitely dedicate to one long practice session a week (on a Saturday or Sunday) and would be open to doing more than that (like on weeknights) if the situation called for it.

Mainly I'd just like to jam and have fun and maybe even play a few shows if we can get a nice set down, and would be open to recording as well if it came to that.

APOLOGIES FOR THE POOR QUALITY ON THE DEMOS but they were just recorded by me using garage band and I'm no audio technician...still, I wanted to give you guys an idea of what my songs sound like.

Influences

The first thing I want to mention is early 90s grunge and alternative, because that's what I mainly grew up on. Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden of course but also stuff like Mudhoney, Pumpkins, Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, etc.

I also grew up listening to a lot of classic rock and I absolutely love Floyd, Beatles, Neil Young, sh*tload of stuff from the 70s.

Last but not least I'm big into punk rock but like 1970s NYC style punk, like Johnny Thunders, Ramones, Richard Hell, Dictators, Dead Boys, etc.

I like a lot of other stuff too but the music that I write is probably closest to those three areas.

EQUIPMENT

2 electrics, 1 acoustic, 1 bass, 2 amps one small practice one and a somewhat larger one, and some microphones and stuff, and a real shitty keyboard.
