Bass Guitar, Drums.


***Looking for band members to start an original alternative rock band.***

Give my tunes a listen here on Bandmix, or check out the full album on Bandcamp, URL below. If you don’t like one of the songs, try another, as they are all quite different. I made this album for YOU future band member, to demonstrate the varieties of alternative rock I like to write for. But we are not limited to any particular sound.



Hey there, I’m James! I’m 30 years old and have been playing music for about 23 years, starting with classical piano, and moving on to synth, vox, rhythm and lead guitar and a bit of drums. I’m always writing songs and instrumentation. I moved to Montreal in 2018 for the music scene. Previously, I was the co-frontman, keyboardist+vocalist and songwriter in an alternative rock band (Mindwaves) for 7 years. So I have a lot of gigging experience, mostly at bars and music festivals.

For the last few years after moving to Montreal, I worked on producing my own album, mostly just because I wanted the experience of producing a record on my own, and just as much for the purpose of making a demo to attract future band mates (I'm lookin at you, unknown ones).

That brings me to now :) I’m looking for a drummer, bassist and guitarist who are technically talented and also enjoy writing for their instrument. Background vocals would be a plus. Even though I’ve written many songs, my goal is for us to write our songs together, but we can still play the songs I’ve already written if we want to. I usually go for a big epic alternative rock sound, but also don’t like to restrict myself to any genre or style/mood. So we can play whatever strikes us.

I’m very serious about this, and have lots of experience and so I’m looking for band members who have those qualities as well. But honestly, I really just want to have fun! There really is nothing like the feeling of putting on a great rock show. It is my intention to tour (even just short/weekend trips it start with). As you can see, I’m really only interested in forming a band with peeps who want to do this with their lives.

So get at me and let’s make some awesome music and memories together and put on some huge shows!
