There is only so much you can do when you're being bullied out of existence by very prominent individuals, but I've done what seems most logical to me at this point. There are too many of them, and only one of me. The illegal activity (i.e., hacking, selling personal information, etc.) that has become so common within the social media realms, over the last decade or so, has cost me the ability to effectively promote or defend myself as an individual. The fact that I look like I am imitating "big name" people, when the exact opposite is the case, makes it too difficult for me to present anything to the general public that I can feel proud of. I can't escape people telling me that I "look like so-and-so", everywhere that I go, and it's degrading to me. I also can't explain to them what's really going on without looking like a desperate loser, because of the circumstances, and when they're all into the other person. It's too exhausting to HAVE TO continue explaining my situation to EVERYONE that I encounter, so I have no social life anymore to save myself the grief. The current imposed circumstances have made it so that I cannot show my face without humiliating myself, because of what I, apparently, look like to everyone else. My natural appearance has been made unusable to ME by some very popular people within the mainstream Entertainment Industry, to the point that it has become a burden to me, and I would rather not pretend that I'm proud to look like an imitation of an imitation right now. I got run over, and I can't use what I've got to represent myself in its current condition. No matter how bad I would want to perform live with a band again, I just don't have the heart to drag anyone else into this, knowing what my bullies will also do to anyone that supports or associates with me. They tear any friends I have, or make, apart like pinatas, and I can't stand to see that happen to anyone else, just because they were talking to me. That's how they're keeping me isolated. I don't know what else to do. This has been the reality of my existence for the duration of it, and I'm sure it wasn't supposed to be this way. There is no safe platform from which I can display any of my work. Judging by the recent past, everything I display will be replicated by people with much larger budgets, and used to make me look false, and I can't handle the heartache of being rejected THAT hard, and in such an obscene manner, just for being proud enough of myself to want to share my work with other people. I was very shy, growing up, due to being abused as a child, and overcame that hurdle with performing... only to have to deal with extreme bullying into my adult life by individuals that are currently serving as "role models" to other people. I already know what it's like to have to lose someone you genuinely value to suicide, so I'm not going that way. Additionally, coming from me, it would look "played-out". If that was what anyone was after, sorry to disappoint. My life kind of sucks right now, because of other people, yeah, but why give someone that has already stolen that much from me more of what THEY would want? I'm still a musician/songwriter and an artist, because it makes my world go 'round, whether you can see/hear me or not, and I'm not killing myself for anyone that could never value me or my work as much as I do. If they don't want it from me, they don't want it. I don't feel like wasting mine anymore. - E.
Home recordings and other outdated personal details have been removed. I have improved tremendously, but have made no recent recordings of my progress, as it has been moving rather rapidly as of late. The other information remains as a diary of sorts. And just FYI, although I am still a regularly practicing vocalist, for circumstantial reasons, I am no longer seeking partners for a tribute band at this time. Thank you for your interest.
Recent home recordings are now available on the music player. I figured a few samples of my work might aid your decision in working with me or not. Just FYI, aside from a few EQ adjustments and the slightest hint of reverb, the vocal tracks are practically dry and untouched, in order to provide a realistic example of what I sound like.

New to the High Desert, I am, primarily, a Rock Vocalist. No hard drugs… alcohol-free… 420-friendly. I am able to sing as well as scream. I have been singing for as long as I can remember, learning by mimicry of my favorite, and even not-so-favorite, singers (lol). Albeit minimally, I have received Rock/Metal vocal training, both with a private coach, and at a local musician's college in Los Angeles, CA. The lessons I received with the coach, and at the college, taught me the very basics, but most of what I do with my screaming techniques, these days, I was forced, by my circumstances, to learn through trial and error.
Instrumentally, I am no virtuoso, but I can play rhythm guitar, supplementally. I, more so, use it to write songs. My friend (male) plays bass. FYI, we both have previous stage and recording experience. We are gonna be doing this cover band thing, and could use a little company. You in?

I like beautifully harsh voices, myself. I like the strong, pretty, clean ones, too… but there really is nothing quite like crisp, guttural, screamy, rock vocal goodness to me. The vocalists listed above should give you an idea of some of the music we appreciate, and may be interested in covering. Many of these unwitting vocal teachers of mine have not been the best examples to follow, regarding their lifestyles, but they are, nonetheless, the people that I learned from, and still regard highly, based upon both their live, and studio vocal performances.
