SEEKING

Vocalist.

ABOUT

I am a seasoned/gigged guitar player who is now working on an original EP in my home studio that combines my love of rock/hard rock music mixed with acoustic, ambient, spacey arrangements. I am seeking a vocalist that is willing to collaborate with me on these songs as I am not a great singer myself. I have many of the arrangements and lyrics complete (see my tune "Balance"), I just need the right voice to bring them to life. I would be willing to pay a reasonable fee for the right person. I am not currently seeking to make this a full gigging band but if the right people and the right elements come together, I will certainly consider it in the future.

Influences

Rock, hard rock, some metal, progressive music, ambient, spacey arrangements. My "dream band" would be a mix between clean vocal Opeth mixed with Incubus-like choruses combined with sweeping, spacey ambient electronic music and rocking, catchy choruses and this is the kind of style my EP is heading towards.
