ABOUT

I'm a female vocalist and amateur, self-taught guitar player with a few years of experience. I've been playing acoustic guitar for about five or six years now after teaching myself how to play, and I took piano lessons when I was really young. About a year ago I got my first electric guitar and have translated what I learned from the acoustic and have also picked up some new things.

Now, I focus mostly on singing and the electric. I'm not totally looking to play guitar while in a band, but it would be interesting for me to pick one up every once in a while and see if I have any ideas. I'm mainly interested in being a front woman. I can't imagine anything that would fulfill me as much as pursuing music; I see it as a way to communicate and connect with people, and there's something very cathartic about it that I haven't experienced before with anything else.

I'd really love to form a sister/brotherhood with a band. Band members are as important to me as the music is, and it's really important to have a good vibe with each other, all be motivated by similar forces, have similar beliefs, etc.

I have about 11 songs written now which are all finalized as far as lyrics go. Five of them are recorded demos on my account, and the rest I'm still working out with instrumentals and vocals.

Specifically, I'm looking for a bassist, a guitar player (preferably two), and a drummer. Must be experienced, confident, and skilled, age ranging from 18-24. Song-writing skills are a definite plus.

If you're interested, shoot me a message and I'd love to hear from you and hopefully get something started. Please send a video and/or audio file of you playing with your message as well.
