I'm 31. I'm a drummer. I used to be in a rock 'n' roll band (Vanmarines, but you've probably never heard of us...) and I'd very much like to make music again. I want to write and collaborate rather than play covers, and music for me is a creative outlet and a means of self-expression which I take very seriously.
Full disclosure, I am a Christ-follower. I'm not looking to start a "Christian band" (whatever that actually means), nor is this a worldview which I expect my bandmates to share, but I do feel that it's important to lay this out in advance so there are no surprises later on.
In terms of genre, my influences listed below pretty much sum up the types of music I'm most interested in creating, but I'm also flexible and as long what we do is honest and done with artistic integrity, I'm down for it.
If any of this sounds interesting (or at least tolerable), get in touch.
(Note: I do have many recordings of my old band which I can share if that is of interest)
