My name's Michael and I'm a 24 year old guitar player looking to play with a band for fun or for now, that's slightly committed (you need some commitment to have fun). I have a full rig to play live shows including a large tube amp and full pedal board with a wide range of good-looking and good-sounding guitars. I don't know anything about producing so if you can do that, that's a plus :) I'm pretty relaxed with a slightly large variety of riffs I've written that are entirely my own on my sound cloud (/letthesounddefine). Looking to play lead guitar for a 4 piece of 5 piece traditional guitar band (Drums, Bass, both Guitars, Both). If you like what you hear there and think we could really connect reach out! I currently work full time and I can make time to practice and gig. Mainly looking to gig and produce original music. Looking for people 18 to late twenties. If you know gear, my equipment list might make you happy! Very into Fender and vintage music equipment! Send me a text if you need me! 704-966-7727. I've been playing guitar since January 2012, and I've been playing music in general since I could get my hands on a piano when I was a child. I played the upright bass in elementary school and the electric bass in high school. Dropped my bass down the stairs in 9th grade and quit music for a little until I picked up guitar in 2012 oh and ukulele!

Influences? I'd say these are bands I revolve my guitar playing around (right now) that I'd like to be a part of a band that would like to sound like parts of these bands: Pale Waves, The Smiths, 2 Door Cinema Club, The 1975 (oh no ;) ), All Time Low. I'm a fan of 2000s pop rock, current pop and "emo" pop. You know a lot of synth, reverb, chorus, with a jazzy sort-of tone and crisp drumming. Anything with an eighties vibe (that seems to be the sound these days). Huge supporter for female-driven bands and literally will get along with any kind of person. If it is a guitar driven band and sounds good, I am interested in playing with you!

DearlyRecorded 12/22/2017. I think this is my only sound that doesn't have any effects added to it. It's just raw clean guitar. The rhythm to this is from a different song called Counting Heartbeats that isn't mine but I put it on a higher fret and added my own original lead to it. Enjoy?
MisinterpretationCreated 10/27/2017 dedicated to my boy candy Cameron.
FriendshipOriginally recorded on 1/4/2017. First recording of the year.
LoversOriginally recorded on 12/17/2016. My amp was giving off bad feedback when I recorded I do apologize.
MellowComposed 4/21/2016. This is another version of my sound "Pieces." It's one of my favorite things I've written so I've been drawn back to it a few times looking to improve or change it.
BeginningRecorded on 10/20/2016. This entire month has been really rough for me so I took the base of my first track "Pieces" and added onto it to which will signify a new start for my project since my inspiration is changing.
DesireI wrote this a while ago and remembered it when I came across a riff on my guitar. Recorded 9/7/2016.

ComposeOriginally recorded 6/09/2016. Image taken by me.
SummerThis was a segment of an instrumental for a song a friend and I arranged. Mostly his work, I remembered bits of the song 2 or 3 years later after it was put together. I'm adding it here so we won't forget it. Originally recorded 6/4/2016. My interpretation of this sound demonstrates a summer with good people who don't have much.
MineOriginally recorded 6/2/2016. Created late May 2016. Image taken by me. I arranged this with a large influence of the song "Single" by The Neighbourhood.
SoftOriginally recorded 5/29/2016. Picture is my own. Image taken by me

ScrimOriginally recorded on 9/24/2015. What goes on in your head when you aren't entirely there.
FreezeOriginally recorded on 4/20/2016. The feeling of being alone and cold yet you're aware of something in the path ahead of you yet unaware of exactly what that is.
SunOriginally recorded on 5/10/2015. Image taken by me. U-Walk.
KissOriginally recorded on 10/26/2015. This was my best at matching the feelings and enigma right after the first kiss you have with someone who is very special to you.
PiecesOriginally recorded on 4/21/2016.
