SEEKING

Band to Join, Vocalist, Bass Guitar, Drums.

ABOUT

My name is Anthony Batayeh (stage name Tony Taye, because it sounds cool) and since elementary school, I've always wanted to be in a band. I've been getting guitar lessons for about 2 and a half years. At the time of typing this description, the world is currently suffering from the coronavirus pandemic, making me unable to continue lessons at the moment, so in the meantime, I've been teaching myself some riffs, which you can see on my Insta (chocolatezeus00 or my backup anthachu). I look forward to the day where I can team up with a(some) musician(s) and performing my first gig with him/her(them).

Influences

Green Day is a huge influence for me. I remember spinning their album Dookie for the first time and being hooked. I've managed to accumulate their entire studio album discography, and I love pretty much all of it. If it wasn't for them, I wouldn't have discovered the videos of some lovely music critics on be who led me to check out other musical acts. Some of my other influences include Weezer, blink-182, Linkin Park, Smash Mouth (yes, really), No Doubt, RHCP (to an extent) and plenty more.

EQUIPMENT

I mostly play electric guitar, but I also own:
Drums
Keyboard
Piano
Bass guitar
Ocarina (an Ocarina of Time replica, because why not)
Acoustic guitar (that I've barely if ever touched)
Harmonica (don't use it much)
Other cool things that we could make some sick beats with.
I don't really have much of a music production setup. The closest thing I have to that is Adobe Audition and GarageBand and I've tried my hand at them but I'd say I'm very limited.
