ABOUT

I've been playing live music for over 10 years. I'm a nineties kid so even though I'm heavily into the indie/folk scene (how trendy am I?) I love everything from Green Day to No Doubt to That Dog and the whole third wave post punk scene. I'm looking to start a band that draws from current folk scene artists like The Decemberists but also combines elements from the 90's third wave post punk bands like Rilo Kiley and That Dog. Some songs will be more folky with string arrangements and others will be more jazzy major 7 pop oriented songs. I have about 15 songs written in the vein and I'd love to form a band and start playing. I have an unbelievably talented Guitarist. I need a female vocalist and all the instruments listed above. Any questions contact me. Malone.ryan.a 201-615-0406 Oh. I'm in the Jersey City area and my punk band rents a room there so I have a spot for us to play!!!
