ABOUT

I am a guitarist/vocalist looking to form a 4-piece (guitar, bass, keyboard, drums) band to play primarily American/Canadian Heartland Rock, Americana, Southern Rock.

I would like to build a strong repertoire of well-known songs as well as not-so-well-known gems. When playing covers, in order to capture the spirit of the song, I like to pay attention to the details and approach the material with a mature and professional attitude.

While serious, committed, and passionate, I have no intentions or delusions of stardom. I am seeking like-minded people to get together with and make some great music.

My current musical outlet is making my own recordings of songs that I would like to work on as a band. Please listen to some of the examples below.

Since I live and work in Mississauga, travel anywhere between Toronto and Hamilton is no issue. Thanks for looking. Feel free to reach out if you are interested: email art.petrosian@me.com or text 647-274-0325.
