Hi I'm a highly ambitious singer/songwriter/keyboardist/rhythm guitarist, aged 23, based in North London, looking to start up a serious alternative/indie/rock band.
I have around 8 years songwriting and 5 years playing experience. I have about 15 excellent songs in my repertoire. I can send demos on request. My songs are sometimes experimental in nature, but with catchy, timeless melodies. I want to form a super-tight 4 or 5-piece band with competent and driven musicians. I have in mind a sort of late 20th Century Alt-rock sound with plenty of piano thrown in, and a few odd quirks (see influences), but I'm fairly flexible. The most important thing is to be willing to convey intense feeling in your playing, even if you're not an amazing instrumentalist. You should be willing to learn some of the parts I've already written, though I definitely want to compose new material together as well. Backing vox ability is a good bonus, but not crucial.
Ambition, focus, and dedication are a must.
If you are into the bands listed below and are serious about making it big in music, this could be an excellent opportunity. Get back to me here or by the methods below if you're interested. Thanks.
