Multi-Instrumentalist (Guitarist) Seeking Band (Radiohead, Warpaint, PJ Harvey, Blonde Redhead, Broadcast, Cardigans, etc.)
I'm a multi-instrumentalist from Los Angeles living in London. I'm looking to find either a band, or if not, a singer/songwriter who i can write songs and collaborate with. I'm really looking to start something serious as I'm very ambitious. I want to find the right people and go for it 100 percent! I'm not kidding around, and I've been in loads of bands before, two of which ended up getting pretty successful.
These are my influences: Radiohead, Warpaint, Blonde Redhead, Lush, Broadcast, PJ Harvey, The Like, The Cardigans, Kate Bush, Sia, Metric (old), Jocelyn Pook, Deerhoof, Pixies, Elliott Smith, Pixies, Alphwezen, and Bjork.
Radiohead is by far my biggest influence musically, as are Warpaint. I hope you like one of them, or if not, one of the other bands listed in the first few because that list is sort of in order. I put female singer because I usually work with female singers, but I'm open to guys too if you share my influences. Ideally, it'd be awesome to just find a band and get things going, but I realize it might take a while and I'll probably get replies by individuals (but that's more than fine!).
I live in Blackheath, in south London, but I can easily get to the city if you live more in town or anywhere else. I'm really eager to get a band or new music project going, and I have a lot of songwriting material but prefer to write with someone else because I'm sh*t at lyrics and structure. Please send links to your music if you have any, here's the last few bands I was in starting from most recent:
http://www.facebook.com/wet.mouth.music (lead guitar on the tracks)
http://www.myspace.com/sharksharkmusik (lead guitar and songwriting)
and my solo stuff http://www.myspace.com/maxwellharrison
Hope to hear from you soon, and I have a lot of free time.
P.S. Despite my seriousness and drive, I have a good sense of humor and am generally laid back.
