ABOUT

I am putting together a hard rock band that tends toward the Modernist movement. I have a lot of songs. I have access to a fully functioning studio and one of the best mix engineers on the West Coast. I sing and play guitar and have a bassist who is very good. I am looking in the Salem area because my rehearsal space/studio is in Sheridan.

Influences

Steve Reich. Arnold Schoenberg. Beatles/Floyd. The Byrds. King Crimson (Adrian Belew pink suit era) Soundgarden. Tool. The Police. Basically every aggressive artsy and technically proficient moderately dark and heavy band ever. We are currently looking for a drummer and maybe a keyboard player who can handle anything from Led Zep to modernist tech rock. My compositions are not usually simple to perform. Any local guitarist that is into playing difficult material should contact me as well.
