Gen Why


Band to Join, Vocalist, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Saxophone, Keyboard, Piano, Harmonica.


I'm a budding singer/songwriter looking for a partnership with a like-minded musician(s), with the goal of getting out there and making a splash... I have been songwriting for several years, and I guess you could most accurately describe my style as indie/alternative rock - somewhere in there. I have a wide range of material, much of which has a strong message, and am particularly interested in teaming up with a female vocalist as many of my songs are designed for two-part harmony. Someone with a better grasp of the guitar than myself would also be a plus.

Listen to a few of the songs I've got here and bear in mind that I'm limited to 3 uploads - but there's about thirty or more other songs ;) If you're looking to explore a wide range of material and possibly build a band with it, this is it... experienced musicians welcome!!
