SEEKING

Lead Guitar, Vocalist - Alto.

ABOUT

I am looking for **REMOTE** Collaborators, well-versed in Lead Guitar and/or female vocals, and well-versed in DAW software.

>Lead Guitar: Lead-guitar proficiency is paramount. Not shredding, just tasteful, bluesy licks.

> For the vocals: a laid-back delivery (think EmmyLou Harris to Mazzy Star with some Allison Krauss mixed-in), centered as Alto, with a voice like a clear mountain stream.

I’d prefer a Liberal and/or Democratic mindset, although I would never ask anyone to join in any of my rare Protest or Resistance Songs.

The idea is to REMOTELY assist each other with our songs, write and record some new ones, and provide some artistic, moral, and friendship-based backup to one-another - continue creating pleasant, happy music. Covers, the occasional Original. You help me with mine, I help you with yours.

I play a lot of instruments and am very-adept at Loop Trickery to make it sound like I play even more.

Very-relaxed working schedule, as long as you can turn tracks around in a month or so. I tend to average 1 – 2 songs per month.

No money, no glory, no stress, no BS, no politics. Only the simple satisfaction of a job well done, and amassing a body of recorded work. I do this ENTIRELY for the pleasure of doing it. I flag myself as “very committed”, but you need not be…

Given the above, the chances of playing "live" become statistically-insignificant... but I will if I can. I love the stage, and have been on it since the age of 4. Being onstage is "Nice to have", but gigs are otherwise unimportant to me, either for glory or money.

I live in Lisle, IL… but I do not care where you live on this planet. Local is better, so we could have an occasional cocktail… and, uh, if you're off-world, I can deal with that too: new rhythms and harmonies to explore!

Influences

Please see my website, teejnet, or the attached tunes here, for an representative sample. I am beholden to no Genre. My goal is to create well-done tunes, often down-tempo (though not always). Channeling Jackie Gleason (the composer / arranger, versus the actor), Kingston Trio, and Brian Eno into this distressed, angry, divisive world. The goal is to make pleasant, intellectual, well-presented music, of whatever genre.

EQUIPMENT

Much. I have a fully-professional, yet very-tiny facility - big-enough for me. My house is too-small to host; I must work remotely.Your DAW does not matter (I use SONAR X-Series), and I have a well-tested common-sense mechanism to do Remote Collaboration, regardless of what DAW you use.
