vocalist/multiinstrumentalist [contact via email firstname.lastname@example.org]
seeking others to start heavy, groovy hybrid style project incorporating elements of my interpretation of our collective influences.. preferably with a root in heavy riffs, hard rocking back beats and a mix of poetry and message .. force fed .. live show explosions, displays of musicianship demanding respect, intelligent booking and marketing, mystery musical terrorism, an anarchist’s cookbook of media fun..
i personally grew up with hendrix, joplin, sabbath, floyd, motown, harley davidsons, free love, war, drugs, .. branching out in my teens through metal of every genre, hip hop, rock (esp the free time of the 80’s), industrial, psychedelic, techno of every variation, tribal, punk as well as studying styles of musicians i love as i picked up bass and guitar in addition to drums along the way.. tried my hand at synth and sequencing and resampling
fame is a by product of being seen in repetition. if this is true, fame comes on its on. in it for money or “pro”? again a by product of hard work. want to “get signed”? buy a pc and protools and post it on itunes. boom! you’re signed. this isnt about all that shit…
samples of my work? the last time i was in the studio as a vocalist was the year 2000. i had done some tinkering at home and the results are all posted on my soundclouds and you tube. its a frame of reference but certainly isnt an accurate representation of my ability or creativity. this is why i hate this process as a vocalist. so many expectations. its almost like blind dating. the past and the future are not real. now is. if you cant take the time and a chance to stand in the same room for an hour and write a song as a group to see if you have what it takes to be a band of brothers for the coming storms then we arent a match anyway..
we can all head down to rock and roll san diego by the sports arena and grab 2 hours and see if we match.. day evening or weekend, we all chip in?
so generally i hope to be writing in the same energy as the following acts but not specific to any
deftones, tool, nin, sabbath, coc, rage against the machine, gojira, neurosis, mad capsule markets, korn, alice in chains, rollins band, the prodigy, bad brains, jane’s addiction, beastie boys, crash worship to name a few.
things you can easily see on youtube or with a google search.
i dont think age matters. if it does to you, *shrug*, what can I say. I was born in 1969 but many think im in my mid 30’s. I dont correct them. Its a little like being a vamp. I’m not sure how long itll last but its telling me that age is not a requirement for playing music and doing what you love. I still have music to make. Shows to play. I have years in front of me and life happened and now im on the other side and craving the experience of creating music and playing shows and the experiences that go with it… not just for our ‘band’ but for all bands in the local, national and global scene at large for this universe is infinite.
