Some doors have closed and others have opened and I'm looking for a new project. I'm willing to move anywhere in the country for the right group! Ideal spots: Boston, Western Mass (Amherst area), Boulder, CO, Arcata, CA, Asheville, NC, Upstate NY, PA, or Burlington, VT.
Guitarist, singer, composer/songwriter
Career oriented - I love to tour and want to spend my life doing so!
Own: Pro grear, great mixing console, and a tour van
Great business and web skills. Also a decent graphic designer. I can screen print t-shirts too.
Lots of connections in the North East (Boston venues, Stone Church, Nectars, albany, maine, etc)
Probably some fans from Mondo Gecko ;-)
27 years old
My ideal band:
Practice, write and tour all the time - weekends gigs at first
at least one or two other vocalists
Some music education would be nice (reading, theory) but if you can play you can play!
Career oriented and driven
Great team players.. and friends! (this sounds like a job ad... well I guess it is!)
4 or 5 people (gtr, bass, drums, keys and maybe another gtr/synth/percussion)
Understands the "scene": festivals, other bands, the attitudes, community.
Sound influenced by:
A mix of phish and the dead with string cheese and disco biscuits splashed in. At least to start... we'll find our own thing. Maybe some floyd and zappa style stuff too. I'm into Umphrey's, STS9, Yonder, and all the "jamtronica" stuff going on.
I'd like a mix of catchy songs and through-composed music. Lots of improve but lots of progressive stuff as well. I love dancy stuff: funk, reggae, dubstep, trance, bluegrass...
