So basically, I'm tired of dealing with flakey musicians and I'm looking to start a project with some committed people!
It would be preferable if you're around my age and available to practice a couple days a week.
I kind of have something a little experimental in mind, with some synth and heavy bass.
I'm a bass player with some slap/funk influence, also play the keyboard and sing.
I'm not the best singer ever, so I'm open to suggestion there, but I do have experience fronting a band.
I also fancy myself a bit of a lyricist.
Here's a sample:
They used to call me creative,
Sitting in the plastic starlight of my bedroom
Pouring my soul on to lined paper
Where did it go?
I dig through the recesses of my head
To find myself
I get lost.
Nothing looks familiar, was I ever here?
I wonder where I went
I wonder where I am
I used to devote myself to words
Words I was too shy to speak or to share.
And now they're gone,
Lost for lack of use.
And when I wake up
Alone in the dark of your bedroom
There are no stars on your ceiling
To divide my head from the sky.
I spent too much time trying to rhyme
Watching from my pedestal as you stripped me away
And I didn't care,
Dangling from my cross,
I thanked you for my little black,
My thoughts have the control.
I observe them from my watchtower,
All by myself, with rations of chemicals
And red bull
Trying to find those pages,
Find the place I hid my soul
From the world that sought to take it.
