ABOUT

UPDATE: I am currently seeking paid gigs as a vocalist, drummer, or lead guitarist, find me on FB under my name ♥

I am playing the guitar (there's only one on this crappy recording ????)

Hello! My name is Salena and I am a guitarist/songwriter/vocalist. I am putting together my next band. An epic indie rock/heavy/math-ish project with just enough pop sensibilities. My musical influences range from Nirvana to Sebadoh and Elliott Smith to Cat Power and Modest Mouse to the Killers. I grew up on the classics, thrived on the Cure, and decided to move to Olympia on Built to Spill. I am in search of level-headed yet completely dedicated drummer and/or bassist.

Here's my last project: ./yumisekai - I wrote Dark Man & Via the Void on that page and play the lead and rhythm guitarist and vocals on all those songs. Not the sound I'm looking to keep but it is where we were...
