ABOUT

I've played in probably a dozen different bands over the years, ever since I was in high school. Some were semi successful, some never went anywhere, but all were fun in their own way. Most of them were punk or hardcore bands but usually with a twist of some kind (for example, last band I was in we had a bit of a Johnny Cash vibe thrown into the mix). For the most part I've been the rhythm guitar player but I've also played bass when needed or to fill in. I've always loved holding down the rhythm section, writing the riffs that drive the song forward so most of my playing is based around that. I'm not the guy who plays the wanky solo in the middle of the song, I'm the guy laying down the main riff and adding little rhythmic fills and melodic pieces to tie it all together and setup my bandmate for the wanky solo :)

I'm looking to put together something similar to this, a melodic punk or a post-punk/alt-rock band with punk roots. Nothing super heavy like grindcore or black metal but equally I don't want to play in a cheesy pop punk band or a screamo/emo type deal...something in between.
