I live in the NYC area. I am taking a year off work to pursue gigs (which I can get) but more importantly recording a polished demo. My songwriting is sort of a mix of dreamy darkwave pop and powerpop - very Britpop sounding. The emphasis is on melody, and the lyrics are similar in a way to The Cure lyrics - gloomy and focused on loss.

The Smiths, Coldplay, Keane, Depeche Mode. I like very melody-oriented pop, really "adult alternative contemporary" with a dark twist. I love hooks and even like musicians like Lindsey Buckingham or Cheap Trick for their smart use of hooks.

Just me, now. I'm really looking for a DRUMMER who likes classic pop music styles. I am planning a long break from my job for touring and recording, in hopes of a record contract. Also, a keyboardist who can play bass parts and other keyboard parts. Again, if you like power pop and dark alternative music, you might be a good match.
I play a white Fender strat and a used Fender bass. I use a drum machine and record on Sonar. I tend to put a lot of effects in, in an attempt to get a smoother sound. I like a "jangly" sound - like The Smiths, but a bit more dreamy.

I was going for a very power pop sound on this.

Moody demo with rain sounds. Not the deepest song, but sort of soothing.

Very spare recording with wah wah background. I want rerecord it as a pop song with accoustic sound and decent drums.
