Vocalist, Keyboard, Piano.

ABOUT

What I'm looking for is a female vocalist ( preferred only because I think my writing lends its self to a female voice ). I'm open to a male vocalist with really good range and original thought however. I have written many songs , riffs, and short melodies over the years and have many ideas that I would like some influence on. I have never been a good lyricist so my melodies are fluid and moving yet also can be quieted down to allow for vocals. My history includes playing for theband Vixen from New York during the early 80's. No not the girl band. Plus multiple bands throughout the early seventies through the eighties. So now I have a load of ideas that I would like to complete with vocals and see what happens. If not for commercial success at least to leave behind songs and ideas that I believe to be of value.

Influences

My earliest influence has to start with the Beatles. But then going through the likes of Page, Beck, Duanne Allman, Eddie Van Halen, Rick Derringer, Clapton and on.
I like almost anything that is ear catchy. Something you hear once and it sticks. Many things I have written is like that. My melodies are so rhythmic that people amost swear they heard that before, yet never have.
