SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Vocalist - Bass, Rhythm Guitar.
I am a 45 year old singer/songwriter lead guitar player. I have played in a number of bands and have performing experience. I have played as a front man in electric bands designed to play my original music with me as the main singer and lead guitarist. I have played solo acoustic shows and acoustic duets as well all around Boulder/Denver area. I have also played lead guitar for bands.
At this time I am seeking a female singer/songwriter who is strong with rhythm guitar. I desire to play originals and the genre I like is bluesy/folks/funky with a very positive message. I would like to start small and just see if we can get 10 songs down, maybe play a couple open mics and then if all is going well I am open to add bass and drums and and see if we can get a band going.
My voice harmonizes best with Bonnie Raitt rather than Jonie Mitchel. I definitely prefer a bluesier sound vs. that high folk sound. I also do like Kirtan music, Hindu chanting like Jai Utall. That type of pure music and vocals does interest me. I don't know that I want to perform that, but maybe work it in a little. Blues meets Kirtan? I also can't play leads unless the Rhythm guitar is strong and driving. Nothing cooler than a good female guitarist. I used to teach guitar and I am open to teach some lead guitar if you are open to that.
I have a place we can rehearse quietly in Gunbarrel for acoustic. I could rehearse a couple times a week if our schedules lined up. Again starting small is good. I have a lot of mornings off if that works. I don't party at all so if your looking for that drinking/smoking/snorting Rock and Roll experience, that is behind me. Healthy living is my road now.
